    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.

      • I cook on a 15-year-old Kamado #9, a huge beast nearly 6 feet tall and with black ceramic tile on the outside. I of course love smoked meats of all kinds, but also like quick cooks like chicken portions, pork tenderloins and fish. Really into cooking of all kinds. Just added an outdoor fire pit that has grilling capability and limited Santa Maria-style grill raising and lowering.

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

      Your neighbors are in for some yummy treats.

            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.

                    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.

                        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.
