The days are getting longer, the weather’s getting nicer, and we’re finally starting to see the grass peek out from underneath the snow. Spring is here. You know what that means—it’s time to get that outdoor kitchen up and running! Try treating yourself to any or all of the following this year:
- Pizza ovens. Forget ordering out—try baking out. According to Jeff Chojnacki of Snyder Diamond, one of the must-have items for any outdoor kitchen is a pizza oven. Just ask your kids—they’ll agree.
- AV equipment. What would a party be without music? What would a barbecue with the guys be without the Big Game on TV? Entertainment is in this year. Give people something to watch besides you at the grill.
- Fun gadgets. What do you get the outdoor chef who has everything? The DIYNetwork suggests Zippo’s Flexible Neck Utility Lighter, which is windproof and can be used to light charcoal, burners and even tiki torches. For nighttime grilling, there’s also the Maverick GL-01 stainless steel fluorescent light, which will keep the kitchen well-lit for up to three hours.
