Where Your Outdoor Kitchen is Located Matters!

What went wrong?
Michael and Jean forgot something very important in building an outdoor kitchen: location, location, location.
When building an outdoor kitchen, you must look for a spot that is not only large enough for what you want, but has enough ventilation. Pay attention to the prevailing winds so that you build in a way that you won't smoke out your neighbors. An outdoor brick oven will help with this with it's built in chimney taking the smoke away from you and your guests. Also look for anything that could block breezes that would relieve your area of smoke, like a tree line or your house.
Another consideration is to have the kitchen near your home. Food prep will probably mostly take place inside and having to trek in and out often could spell disaster for your food if the trip takes too long! Your home can also provide some much needed shade that will help keep the place more comfortable for everyone.
Wherever you decide to build your outdoor kitchen, what you won't need to worry about is where to find your outdoor oven. Round Grove Products has styles that will fit in most areas and their exteriors are customizable to fit the look of your home and yard.
