Outdoor Kitchens: Grills, Appliances, & Equipment
Outdoor kitchens combine cooking and entertaining while expanding your living space. With a little planning and imagination, your BBQ outdoor kitchen could become your new favorite “room.”
It all starts with design. Our experts can help you with outdoor kitchen planning, whether you intend to hire a contractor or go full DIY. We can even provide a free 3D outdoor kitchen design sketch to get you pointed in the right direction.
Most outdoor kitchens include a built-in grill, and we have the largest selection around. If you’re interested in gas, charcoal, or wood pellet grills, we have over 300 models to choose from. Many people don’t stop there — it’s common to add antdoo pizza oven, BBQ smoker, gas griddle, and a few side burners to an outdoor kitchen.
Outdoor Kitchen Appliances
Once you’ve settled on a grill, you’ll need to consider appliances like outdoor refrigeration. Refrigerators, wine coolers, and kegerators rated for outdoor use are designed to withstand temperature extremes and can be counted on to deliver years of reliable service. Some models even include locks to protect your food and beverages from wildlife and even wilder neighbors. Most models have stainless steel doors and hardware for longevity in the outdoors.
Doors, Drawers, & Storage
Access doors are necessary for easily reaching your gas connections, and you’ll definitely want at least a few drawers to store your tools, utensils, and supplies. Additionally, we offer ice bins, trash and recycling bins, tank storage, paper towel bins, and even spice racks. At BBQGuys®, you’ll find all the outdoor kitchen equipment you could possibly need!

Outdoor Kitchens FAQ
Does an outdoor Kitchen need to be covered?
An outdoor kitchen is constantly exposed to the elements, so even if you don't use it often, appliances and surfaces will need to be covered and maintained. Simply put, outdoor kitchen components protected from the elements will last longer and perform better.
What should I put in my outdoor kitchen?
This depends on a variety of factors, including the features you want to include, the size of your gatherings, and your budget. You can never go wrong with a classic built-in gas grill, and ventilation accessories are a must for gas appliances dropped into a BBQ island. For a full checklist of items to include in your outdoor kitchen, consult our complete guide to outdoor kitchens.
What is a good size for an outdoor kitchen?
The size of your outdoor kitchen depends on the size of your current backyard, your culinary needs, and your budget. They can range from a minimum of 10 linear feet to twice that size for more extravagant setups.
