How to construct an Outdoor Kitchen

Kitchens are the undisputed heart of the home, where all and sundry gathers, mingles, and lingers during parties. But to achieve that kind of appeal outside means increasing your outdoor living space. To draw a crowd and keep those entertain require a bit more than plop down a table and a few plastic chairs.

With an outdoor kitchen you can get ready meals and be around your guests with minimal time spent running back inside for plates, beverages, or tongs. Although you could spend tens of thousands of dollars for a custom outdoor kitchen, a basic island is a competent design that leaves out the difficulty of curves and angles. Not only that, with an island guests can relax on one side while you are cooking on the other, so you feel as though you're part of the gathering.

Since durability is such a critical issue for an outdoor kitchen, stone veneer is a low-maintenance option that won't need painting or sealing. Real stone is heavy, expensive, and requires the experience of a mason. Documentations cultured stone, such as the style used in this project from Landmark Stone, is easier to work with because it's lighter, cuts faster, and lasts just as long as the real thing all while looking as natural as real stone.

Few Tips for an Outdoor Kitchen

Have you ever found yourself running back and forth between cooking indoors and cooking outdoors on a warm afternoon? The best way to avert this from happening is to properly design your outdoor kitchen so that it can function like your indoor kitchen. 

Prevent needless trips inside by doing all the prep work ahead of time, and when it's time to cook, make sure you get all your basics together before you start it’s simple to forget about the paper towels or the trash can until you really need it.

If you are designing an outdoor kitchen or looking for ideas on how to advance your existing outdoor kitchen, follow these tips and you'll find yourself right in the middle of the party, even while you're cooking.
Make sure your outdoor kitchen has all the necessary spaces: prep, cook, and serve, cleaning. This will make it simple for you to do the entire job outside.

A satellite kitchen is perfect if you plan to do the bulk of your prep work in your actual kitchen. Locate your outdoor kitchen contiguous to your indoor kitchen will help you move food back and 4th speedily, and if you forget anything, you know its close by.

Including a bar top in your kitchen allows guests to sit and talk while you arrange and cook. This brings the party to the cook. Many visitors enjoy being close to the cook, and with a bar top they can watch all the action while still staying out of the main kitchen space.

If you are looking for a way to improve your outdoor kitchen and don't want to build in a bar top, consider using a long table with bar stools. This also can act as an immense prep area if you don't have enough counter space.

Much like having the dining space close by, having a living space close by will allow the cook to interrelate with guests while they hang out, waiting for the barbecue.

Large kitchens allow for family-style cooking. This is great for people who want to help arrange and cook the food. Make sure there is plenty of counter space for group cooking.

Whether with color, building or materials make your outdoor kitchen a focal point. This will help draw guests into the kitchen area while you cook. This covered kitchen, which allows for the party to be centered on the kitchen, is a great example.

People like a good traditional barbecue. On a sunny day, people just wish to cook and eat outside. For some reason, food cooked outside just tastes better. Whatever the reason, it seems as the weather heats up, so do our outdoor grills.




More people are remodeling their patios into an outdoor enjoyable space with the same entertaining concepts as the modern great room. The outdoor kitchen allows for the guests to congregate around the outdoor cooking action and makes it possible for the outdoor chef to be a part of the party.

Barbecues don't just grill anymore. Some come equipped with rotisseries and can double as smokers. Additional stove-top burners are also obtainable in some models, so you can prepare the whole meal with no ever stepping foot in the real kitchen.

For some, a giant, all inclusive barbecue just isn't enough. These intrepid grillers want more an actual outdoor kitchen. Only stainless-steel appliances can be used to equip an outdoor kitchen. Often homeowners want a roof over their outdoor cooking space. Precisely, no wood should be used over a barbecue, whether in the form of a roof or a pergola. If a roof is a must, consider partially covering the area, leaving the barbecue in the open. A frame can also be constructed of steel and a metal roof applied if a full roof is non-negotiable.

Modern Grilling Trends

Canadians and Americans love their gas grills, although some feel that grilling over gas loses some of the flavor associated with charcoal and flame. Well, worry no more. There are numerous grilling planks and wood chips obtainable that, when joint with the cooking power of a gas grill, allow garden chefs to taste the smoky flavor of wood while cooking with the convenience of gas. Tender, smoky ribs, roasts and seafood can be achieved with ease.

                                                

When you smoke a cut of meat, give it plenty of time and smoke so it can soak up the flavor. Start by saturated the wood chips in water for at least half an hour and then drains them. Use a stainless steel or cast iron smoker box placed under the cooking grids so the chips will smolder and smoke. Cooking meat or seafood on a wooden board is sure to get great results and wow your dinner guests. The process is just as simple as smoking. Just soak the plank in water, juice, or beer for an hour and pat it dry. Place the experienced meat on the plank and then onto a medium-low.
