Pizza Ovens

For those who enjoy the smoky flavors of a delicious homemade pizza, a wood-fired pizza oven is the way to go. This amenity is usually a custom-built feature but do-it-yourself kits are available. Photo courtesy of Kalamazoo

Side Burners

Perhaps the most useful of outdoor appliances is a separate side burner. This amenity allows you to heat sauces or boil water while you're grilling. Photo courtesy of KitchenAid

Hybrid Fire Grilling Drawers

Switching cooking methods from gas to charcoal is a breeze with this grill option. Kalamazoo designs high-performance cooking drawers that diffuse heat for gas grilling and incorporate a bed of charcoal or wood in stainless steel drawers for the ultimate grilling experience.

Mini Refrigerators

A refrigerator is handy for cold drinks as well as for keeping condiments close to their point of use. Icemakers and wine refrigerators are popular choices to consider. Photo courtesy of KitchenAid

Charcoal Grills

Charcoal grills burn hotter than gas grills, and you can burn wood in a charcoal grill to impart a natural, smoky flavor into your foods. This Masterbuilt grill is designed for function and mobility, with fold-down sides for food preparation.

Gas Grills

These grills are convenient; they ignite at the push of a button and allow you to control the heat with the turn of a knob. Shop for a grill made of high-quality materials. Photo courtesy of Cal Flame

Utility Drawers

Stainless steel appliances stand up to any outdoor elements. KitchenAid designs drawers for utility, trash and extra storage for convenient grilling.
