    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?

      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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages
