In places where the weather is good for the majority of the year, cooking outdoors is not just something you do occasionally – for many people it can become a way of life. Some people struggle along with their little portable grills, but for those who really want to make the most of the extended outdoor cooking season, a built in grill is an obvious next step in the evolution of your outdoor life.
You may have debated whether or not to consider a built in grill in your backyard, or perhaps you’re already sold on the idea but don’t know where to start with choosing the right built in grill for you and your family. Obviously you want a built in grill that will complement whatever style you have already chosen for your outdoor furniture and accessories – just because a built in grill is a major element in your backyard room doesn’t mean it has to be overwhelming or distracting. In fact, when implemented correctly, a built in grill can be a seamless part of your overall backyard design, and can be the crowning jewel that makes you want to spend every meal enjoying the outdoors.
Aside from being impressive to look at, our built in grills can really improve your eating experience. We use Traeger Wood Pellet Grills, which have a myriad of advantages over traditional charcoal or gas grills. If you have ever tasted food cooked over wood, you already know how wonderful it would be to have a setup like that for your built in grill. Also, wood grills are safer, healthier, and more versatile than other grills. When you buy a built in grill, obviously you are looking for something that will be a permanent improvement to your outdoor experience, so you may as well go with something you won’t regret later. Imagine all the wonderful smoked, baked, and grilled foods you’ll be able to enjoy from your wood-burning built in grill.
If you have the kind of family and friends that really love getting together at the weekend and having a cookout, a built-in grill is an investment that will pay for itself many times over with the enjoyment it provides. It’s kind of like having all the convenience of a kitchen atmosphere, but with the added benefit of being able to prepare freshly grilled foods outside. A built in grill is sort of like an all-in-one outdoor food package – you get the best tasting meals, the advantages of having ample counter space for food preparation, and the enjoyment of being outside in the fantastic weather.
