Picture it: a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the sweet smells of summer flowers are wafting through the air. It’s prime season for a barbecue. Neighbors and family are called to come celebrate the day with spicy ribs, and tall glasses of lemonade. That is the American dream, sunshine, lemonade, barbecues and perfect looking backyards. The reality is much different. Sure there are perfect days where the birds are chirping and the sun is shining, but most people have a grill that looks like it has sat in the rain for 3 years, and that eyesore is only outdone by their home which could use a fresh coat of paint. Outdoor kitchens finished in brick, are one of the easiest ways to attain the American dream as they offer interaction, beauty, and fun without high maintenance.
Many hosts feel they have two choices: cook all day before the guests arrive, or cook when the guests arrive. The former creates an exhausted host, and cold food, while the latter creates a host who is unable to interact with their guests. There is an alternative. Outdoor kitchens provide an environment where the host can cook an entire meal outside. This frees up the host from countless hours of prep-work indoors, and allows for interaction outdoors. Because the entire meal can be made outside rather than just the grilling, the host can then spend their time talking to and otherwise entertaining their guests instead of running back and forth from the kitchen to the outdoor entertainment area.
An outdoor kitchen is much more than just a grill on wheels, it offers everything from an oven, to a refrigerator, to a stove and of course a grill. This ensures that everything the host needs can be at their fingertips in a matter of moments.
Outdoor kitchens finished in brick masonry also add beauty to the entertainment area. The natural brick masonry perfectly complements the outdoors, giving a high quality yet rustic feel. Also, because it is easy to clean, the host can relax, knowing that their guests will never have to see rust on the cooking equipment. Because brick masonry stands the test of time, the host will have a beautiful station at which to work for years to come.
Finally, a good host is concerned about the maintenance of their equipment. Because an outdoor kitchen is not used as often as an indoor kitchen, the maintenance required is minimal. The outdoor kitchen can be used all season long, and at the end of the season it can be cleaned and turned off so that it is ready for the next season. Those done in brick masonry will hold up better through the off seasons and can be easily rinsed off when ready to use once more.
Outdoor kitchens make for better and more relaxed hosts, which then provides for happier guests. The brick masonry promotes a touch of sophisticated elegance and style while allowing for easy maintenance. The American dream is attainable with an outdoor kitchen set in brick masonry.
