Suburb life is the one to be lived. Besides the cozy indoors, who wouldn’t want the smell of fresh barbeque wafting through the air in the yard? Looks like a typical movie setting but outdoor kitchens have turned out to be quite the hype in the Australian neighbourhoods. But before you reach out for a charcoal grill in outdoor kitchen appliance store, make sure you have your choices made right. Read on to find out how to make the right choice of outdoor kitchen unit for your humble abode.
Sure you have the charisma of any barbeque dad. But you have to consider your yard space first. Often sellers try to make the best out of your guesses about your yard space. The trick here is to take a good measure of the prospective space you are going to use for entertaining your guests. For instance, if you have a good 12 by 12 square feet space by your swimming pool, you can go for a barbeque grill along with an outdoor fridge.
This is a major consideration. Before you start haggling with the unit supplier, you have to factor in your budget. That depends on how frequent do you want to entertain any friends or host a party. Usually, if you are a bachelor with a decent salary living in an apartment, you can do without large cooking units and charcoal grill. A small full hooded charcoal spit will do just fine. It won’t cost you much either and will be easy to maintain.
In areas prone to weather fluctuation, the maintenance of outdoor kitchen equipment becomes a little tricky. This is why you have to consider the usage and maintenance of the equipment. Ask your supplier for proper maintenance tools with the outdoor fridge and cooktops. Perishables are a no go for long storage. Your beef and ham and beer bottles may work. Also, apprise your seller of the power supply available to your unit. That way you can make an informed decision and a good buy.
In a nutshell, outdoor cooking can be your hobby or even a necessity. But make a good purchase after factoring in all the above points. Happy grilling.
