Create An Outdoor Kitchen with A Propane Grill

A propane grill can be an easy starting point for a full-fledged outdoor kitchen. These cooking units have tons of space inside the grill itself and include surface space on either side of the grill, usually in the form of fold-down shelves.

Find the grill that's best for your patio, deck or backyard and build out from there. With just a few changes, you can design a whole new space for meals and entertaining.

What Is A Propane Grill?

A propane grill is a cooking unit with a metal construction that heats food on a grill or grate over its heat source. In the case of propane, the gas provides fuel for a fire that cooks your meat, seafood, tofu or veggies.

  • These grills use liquid propane in a tank. The propane is liquid because it's pressurized in a tank, which drops its temperature.
  • When you open your propane tank's valve, the liquid becomes gas again instantly. This is totally safe -- it's how all propane functions.
  • Some grills are hybrid grills. If you remove the gas tank, you can use it with briquettes as a charcoal grill.

New Features Make Propane Grills Amazing

As grills become more advanced, they become more worthy of their own dedicated outdoor cooking area.

  • Invest in a grill with multiple independent burners for ultra-control over cooking space. Micro-environments across a big grill let you multi-task like a grill champion.
  • Larger grills come with rotisserie spits so that you can cook entire birds or big legs.
  • Quick ignition is ready to cook as soon as you are.
  • Round hoods promote 360° air circulation for convection cooking that is fast and precise.
  • Don't forget to look for one with a built-in bottle opener.

Stocking A Grill Area Like A Kitchen

To fully realize an outdoor kitchen around your grill, pair yours with simple appointments and comfortable outdoor furnishing for a full-on dining experience.

  • Set up a station for knives outside at a nearby high-top table or a shelving unit you keep outside. Having the tools you need to slice, chop, carve and serve makes your grill feel like you're in the kitchen.
  • Build or dedicate an area of your deck to a bar. You can keep it simple at first, but stock it with bar tools and shatterproof glasses.
  • Set the table with a tablecloth you love and dress it with a centerpiece of candles, wreaths or ceramics. Invest in comfortable outdoor dining chairs.

Use for Entertaining

Once you've got your grill area set-up, start inviting friends, family and neighbors over to eat and relax. When your grill becomes an extension of your house, everyone thinks of your place as home.
