Outdoor cooking has far surpassed the days of the simply grilling on the patio. Incorporating everything from fully-stocked bars to full-size kitchen appliances in its plans, open-air cooking has soared to new levels of creativity, design, and technique.

With Outdoor Kitchens you will be able to personalise the outdoor cooking space that perfectly suits your lifestyle. Superb photography creates a catalog of options, inspiring you to design a space that exactly meets your desires, climate, cooking style, and budget.

This book equips you with all the information you need to successfully set up an outdoor kitchen, from tips on choosing the right decor to proper equipment selection, allowing you to make all the correct decisions along the way.
