It's always a lot of fun to entertain your friends, family, and neighbors, especially with an outdoor cookout. The camaraderie is always refreshing, and it's always fun to be grilling or barbequing while you're out in the open. Now, you can decide to just haul out the grill or cook indoors and bring the food outdoors. That's fine. But sometimes it's more convenient and just more fun to have a burner, grill, or oven out there waiting for you.
Outdoor kitchens are a great thing to have, and they can add additional character to your patio or backyard. Our Arizona landscape design team has helped a lot of people in the Phoenix area create and install their outdoor kitchens. We get a fair amount of questions about these, so we'd like to just go over a few of the basics right now.
What are outdoor kitchens?
Outdoor kitchens are just what they sound like. Many times these outdoor kitchens consist of a burner or range and a grill, and ample table space on which to prepare ingredients and set plates. Some people have special requests and needs for their entertainment and outdoor activities, however. It's not unheard of for these outdoor kitchens to include a smoker, a bar, a pizza oven, or even a fireplace.
What should I consider about outdoor kitchens?
The main thing that you should think about when deciding to get an outdoor kitchen is what you like to do when you're entertaining outdoors. Our landscape design company in the greater Phoenix area can provide some suggestions, but only if they meet your needs.
For instance, not everyone is going to need a pizza oven. If you don't really cook that many pizzas, you may be better off with just a grill or burner. Similarly, you may want to build your outdoor kitchen around a smoker or a special oven rather than the grill and burner. Again, it really depends on your lifestyle and entertaining needs.
