Three Design Considerations for Your Propane-Powered Outdoor Kitchen

In our last post, we talked about some of the benefits of upgrading your outdoor entertainment space. This week, we’ll take a look at three of the most important considerations for setting up an outdoor kitchen area that’s perfect for you.

Here are three key questions to ask:

  1. Do you want a built-in propane grill or a freestanding propane grill cart? A freestanding propane grill cart is less expensive and can be easily moved if needed; it can also be swapped out down the road if you outgrow it or if it breaks down. Built-in grills are generally larger and fixed in place, but they will make your outdoor space feel more elegant, like a formal kitchen. For more considerations in choosing a built-in grill, see “What to look for in a built-in grill” here.
  2. How many people do you plan to cook for? The size of your typical entertainment crowd has an impact on the type and size of the grill and the amount of service and prep space you’ll need for your kitchen. While you may do some of your food prep work inside, you’ll still need to stage it for grilling and serving in your outdoor space.
  3. What features do you want? Your outdoor kitchen can just about any equipment you can imagine – from sinks and cabinets to drawers, refrigerators, bars, and propane space heaters. Propane-powered lighting is also important, since you’ll probably prepare many of your meals at night.

It may take a little time and a bit of money to get it up and running, but once you have your propane-powered outdoor kitchen fired up and ready you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
