The “Gold” Outdoor Kitchen Plan
The gold plan is really about bringing a state-of-the-art cooking and dining experience outdoors. In addition to a cooking element, side burner, drawers for storage, trash bin, refrigerator, and sink, the options in a luxury kitchen plan are endless. An addition of a second cooking element can add to the fun of cooking outdoors, many select a gas grill and then either a pizza oven or smoker, though all three could be installed. Some even opt for a double-sided grill- one side propane and the other charcoal.
A warming drawer is an important consideration as well if you are entertaining larger groups. You can keep food that has already been grilled warm or even heat up hot dog and hamburger buns in it. Beverage storage is kicked up a notch too! Outdoor wine coolers or coolers with can holders are a huge hit with guests and save space for food in the refrigerator. Some opt for a built-in ice bin to hold beverages as well to give the ‘old school’ feel of keeping things cold.
A kegerator can easily be installed too, if you plan to have larger gatherings that serve beer. An absolute must for a premium kitchen is an ice maker. It saves extra trips to the store to buy ice or hauling it from inside the house to outside. Finally, the addition of a dishwasher and garbage disposal complete any luxury kitchen, saving you from hauling dirty dishes inside and then clean ones back out.
