An outdoor kitchen can give grill masters an opportunity to expand their repertoire. A smoker or pizza oven is impractical indoors, but perfect for an outdoor kitchen. An outdoor wood-fired pizza oven can reach high temperatures an indoor oven can’t, allowing faster cook times and a better taste.
Smokers are also impractical to have indoors as they set off smoke detectors and fill your home with smells that linger for days. Those issues can be eliminated with an outdoor smoker that finally allows you to smoke an authentic brisket, tri-tip or rack of ribs.
Cooking outdoors can also eliminate other lingering odors from your house. Cedar-plank salmon is healthy and delicious but can leave your house smelling of fish, but cooking fish outdoors prevents that from becoming a problem.
Outdoor cooking is also a great way to keep the house cool in the summer months. Nobody wants to heat up the house by baking a peach cobbler, yet no summer bbq would be complete without that staple. An outdoor oven easily solves that issue and keeps air conditioning costs low.
An outdoor kitchen is also great for entertaining. It allows guests to gather around the grill with the host while the food cooks. Many indoor kitchens are too small for this to be comfortable, but an outdoor kitchen allows freer mingling in a more open space. Outdoor heaters, lights, furnishings and music can all add to the ambience.
As far as remodels go, outdoor kitchens are a great investment. Because of the popularity of outdoor living spaces, outdoor kitchens have a high rate of return as an investment. Buyers are always excited to see an outdoor kitchen, and most outdoor kitchen appliances are built to stand the test of time. They can be enjoyed for many years to come while also adding resale value.
An outdoor kitchen is a great way to expand a family’s living space and make use of the outdoors. Families are spending more and more time indoors at work and at school, and even at home the attractions of electronic games and devices are a powerful lure. Outdoor kitchens are a fun and easy way to spend quality family time unplugged and enjoying the fresh air outdoors together.
