When considering your new outdoor kitchen space it is best to move the thought process of the design for a moment to mimic an indoor kitchen in which the way it functions, looks aesthetically and holds all the outcomes it provides as a central link to the house and its family members. The outdoor kitchen layout should be the highlight of outdoor activity.The view from both the grill master and the conversing guests should be pleasing and welcoming. There is no reason not to take a good vantage point and location from the back yard to start the process. Secondly define the intent. Is this the family outdoor kitchen space for everyday grilling opportunities for friends and family?

And if you don't, create the space so your guests and friends come over and are impelled to take the "Grill over". There is always one of those in the crowd. With todays great looking, high performance grills it easy to make it the highlight of the party. Today's grills have LED lites, easy closing lids, infrared burners, smart cooking technology, and multi purpose steamer, fryer capability to help raise the bar to earn you the title "GRILL MASTER”.
