    Outdoor kitchen area

    This year has brought many of the hopeful upgrades to our back patio. We had a block planter box that was about 2 foot high wall, about 14 foot long and 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep. My wife over the past few years has been digging some of the dirt out, plus friends getting free dirt. Next a few friends helped by taking the wall down and away for us. Next we we had that concrete poured, which allowed our side by side refrigerator to swing over. Added our hot/cold sink that is plumbed back into the house drain, this week my stainless storage cabinet showed up. Had three electric boxes of 4 outlets a piece added. We are still adding a small freezer out here, putting a portable ice maker on top of the freezer in the right corner of this photo, adding a cheap tv, and if the stars align, we will maybe even get a hard top built over it attached to house slanted away. But, here is the progress. Until we get our hard top, everything has covers.

    Nice work! This looks great!

    Keep up the good work. Must be nice to have a fridge out there.


      Wonderful! You are going to have such a wonderful time out there this summer.

      Your neighbors are in for some yummy treats.


        Looking good Richard! You will be the envy of the neighborhood...and The Pit.


          Nice fridge. Where did you get it?

            A friend gave it to us, it was inside a subway sandwich shop. I can look up the manufacturer if you would like. It is definitely commercial quality.

            That's okay, I have a set of fridges in my outdoor kitchen already. Hopefully, they will last for years even though they aren't commercial. But I could see upgrading to something like yours once these ones stop kicking.

          How about a video tour?
          Looking good in the neighborhood.


            Very nice! Thank you for sharing!


              Nicely done Richard. Lookin' forward to more photos as things progress.


                Looking great Richard! That should make for a very enjoyable summer in the backyard!


                  Nice set up. That sink out there will be so handy.


                    I totally missed this post. What an excellent start to the Fairchild Outdoor Kitchen!! Looking forward to your next upgrade and let's see that new sign hanging there soon !!!

                      Along with a shelf for your cooking trophies.

                    I also missed this earlier. It's looking really good. I had a mental dalliance with the idea of putting a mini-fridge under one end of the 4 foot sink cabinet I'm building when I saw them displayed at Home Depot, but decided the money would be better spent elsewhere for the time being.


                      Very nice! I especially like the two bowls for the dogs - everyone's welcome

                        One of the two labs that accepts me despite some of my bad behaviors, does not allow me into his area, without his approval, and supervision.

                    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

                    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
