    Two 22" kettles and one Smokey Joe in a covered outdoor kitchen

    After decades of grilling outside in the Florida elements I finally have an opportunity to build a covered outdoor kitchen over my babies. I sometimes have all three charcoal grills cooking at once. Any ideas on how to avoid heat and smoke buildup under the roof?

    An exhaust fan to blow your troubles away.

      A strategically placed exhaust fan!

    Not done this but my inclination would be to build the roof with a slight peak from each site up to the center and put a chimney there so the smoke and heat would rise, hit the roof, be guided to the peak where the chimney is and escape. Some would depend on the actual design (are there any walls or is this effectively an open area with a roof? how big above the ground is the roof? etc)

      I'm contemplating a fan to either pull or push the smoke and heat out a central chimney but no firm decision yet. Except for some cabinets supporting countertops and MAYBE a 2/3s wall as an outside wall it will be open.

    I’ve always liked the look of a double tiered roof.

      I'm seriously considering this design. Any idea on the length and width of the structure?

      thegeneral2 I just grabbed a screen cap off of a google search. I’m sure it can be built any dimensions needed.

      Something like this is also a possibility. It's not uncommon for us to get high winds and a couple of inches of rain in a couple hours in the Summer when the East and West Florida sea breezes collide shortly after the charcoal is lit and the food hits the grill grates. The slant of the roof definitely has to be away from the house and not so high that the rain is blown onto the grills extinguishing the charcoal.
