BBQ Season Is Here – Are You Ready?

With summer in full swing, you may already be dreaming of the BBQ days in the back yard that lie ahead. But it’s also a good time to make sure your outdoor cooking area is as ready as you are! A nice summer kitchen area is great way to add value to your home without breaking the bank. It’ll also allow you some great quality time with the family and friends.

Start With The Grill:
The obvious place to start is with the grill. If you haven’t replaced your grill in a few years, you’re in for quite a treat when you see what’s on the market these days. Wood pellet grills and smokers from companies like Traeger, are becoming all the rage for those in the BBQ know. These pellet-fed grills allow for a more even and controlled cooking surface and deliver the true BBQ taste that only real wood delivers. The beauty of the pellet grill is its versatility. You’ll be able to serve BBQ that just falls off the bone, grill steaks, bake wood fired pizzas or really impress the guests with a smoked ham or turkey… all in a single unit! Plus pellet grills control the heat and the fire so you never have to babysit your grill again.

Upgrade Your Outside:
You might also consider working with a contractor to upgrade the deck or patio. You can create an entire outdoor kitchen by incorporating the grill, as well as some shelving units for storage, and maybe even add a bar with an ice machine! Working with a contractor you can also get some electrical outlets conveniently placed to allow for a small refrigerator and maybe even a sink. Imagine being able to serve drinks to the family and friends without having to keep running back inside. Or keep the necessary ingredients for the meal cold until you were ready for them. 

Get Comfy:
Don’t over look the patio furniture either. It’s important that your guests have a nice place to relax while enjoying the summer kitchen. You can add little spice to the average patio furniture layout with a nice outdoor sofa or lounge.

If it’s been some time since you made any changes or upgrades to your backyard “oasis”, now is a great time to consider sprucing it up a bit. There are some really amazing things that can be done with a deck or stone patios these days, and the new appliances have become much more affordable. And don’t forget, you’ll not only have a great space to entertain your family and friends, you’ll be adding overall value to your house!
