Summer Kitchen Ideas?

Posted by Sam_I_Am (My Page) on

We are getting ready to build a summer kitchen. I have a large patio so space is not an issue. I envision a long bi-level bar. The top bar will function as "bar" seating. We'll entertain out there and serve drinks. The other side will be our built in grill. I'm not sure which type of grill to get. Is infra red all it's cracked up to be? Would it serve any other use besides a rotisserie? I was looking at the Flame Tech grill. Any comments? Also, I'm thinking I don't want a sink. Will I regret that? I'd love to see some pictures of people's summer kitchens. I haven't even decided on the materials. It will probably be concrete block/stucco. Would I be crazy to get wood cabinets? We live in FL, but not on the water. Thanks for any input!

I wouldn't do wood outside in Florida. I'm in Coastal Texas. Stainless Steel Cabinets are the only way to go here.

I think you will use an outdoor sink more than you realize. How many times have you dropped a utensil? or needed to wash up? Cross contamination happens very easily.

i was thinking about a brick oven also but am not sure of the cost cleanup & maintenance.
