Great Backyard Barbecues

Absolute Pool REpair, pool repairs in Vero and SEbastianWhen you think of a pool, do you also think about a backyard kitchen, a big, beefy barbecue with a nice counter top and some bar stools where friends can sip a cold drink while you are grilling your favorite dish. Walls Street Journal had a great post about them a few weeks ago:

To find one of the most popular cooking appliances in a new upscale home, head outside to the built-in barbecue grill in the backyard.

Instead of being wheeled out on a cart, many luxury barbecues are built into elaborate islands that form the heart of the “outdoor kitchen.” These days at least 75% of sales of high-end grill companies like Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, Alfresco Open Air Culinary Systems and RH Peterson are generated by built-in models, versus cart versions. And that percentage has steadily increased over the last 10 years.

Tricking out one’s outdoor kitchen adds up. People typically spend around $15,000, but that cost easily rises to $100,000 for a larger project with amenities like a built-in pizza oven, kegerator and weatherproof pantry unit.

As built-in barbecues become big-ticket purchases, female shoppers have also been drawn into what was a “good ol’ boy industry,” says Jim Buch, CEO of Lynx Grills. “Guys care about the gauge of the steel and how hot the grill will get, whereas women care about the elegance of the product, safety features and how long it will last.”

We have some great local contractors here in Indian River County who build beautiful and functional outdoor barbeque and kitchen areas.. Do you need a cool new barbie?
