Make the Most of Your Outdoor Space
Has your home reached its full potential? One space that always used to be overlooked was the outdoor kitchen, but no longer. Interest in outdoor kitchens has exploded and is continuing to grow. With that in mind, here are some of the trends we’re seeing.
Outdoor Kitchens Continue to Expand
It used to be that a grill was good enough. However, more and more homes are expanding their outdoor cooking options to include different types of products to help them get the most out of their outdoor kitchens.
What’s better than delicious barbecue ribs or brisket? Delicious barbecue ribs or brisket you’ve made yourself. That’s why premium smokers are becoming more popular with weekend warriors. Before long, you’ll be craving your homemade meals more than your favorite restaurant.

Many people are either die-hard gas grillers or dedicated to the natural smoky taste of charcoal. Other people see the benefits of both. Some in the latter group are going a step further and adding one of each to their outdoor setup.Even better, you could always buy a combination grill like the Fire Magic Aurora A830s and get the benefits of charcoal and gas in the same grill.
Smart Home Tech Makes Cooking Easier
As technology continues to advance, many more products can now be purchased with smart integrations. Even outdoor kitchens are starting to get in on the act, and smart grills are taking the guesswork out of cooking.
The Lynx Smart Grill features everything you’d want in a high-end grill. High-performance, heavy-duty construction and a boatload of traditional grill features are all there. What makes the Smart Grill different, though, is its Intel processor, smartphone app control and wifi compatibility. Just pick the recipe you want and let the grill do the work for you.
Pellet grills make it easier to grill with wood. Smart pellet grills like the Memphis Grills Beale Street Pellet Grill take this a step further with Wi-Fi compatibility and control from the Memphis Mobile App (for iOS or Android). You’ll have exact temperature control, current grilling conditions and built-in recipes right at your fingertips!
Patio Heaters Rejuvenate Outdoor Spaces
Outdoor dining options have continued to remain popular for both residential and commercial customers. Patio heaters have played a large role in this trend, with the units being popular in warmer climates and essential for cooler climates.
Commercial Patio Heaters
Large commercial patio heaters like the Bromic Portable Radiant Heater are perfect for situations where permanent heater units won’t work. This heater can provide coverage for an area 13 feet by 16 feet while featuring easy assembly, built-in wheels and a storable design.
Residential Patio Heaters
Patio heaters aren’t just popular for restaurants. If you’re looking to extend your patio season at home, the Lynx Electric Dual Element Heater can take the chill out of the air with a heating area up to 121 square feet. Don’t let Mother Nature stand in the way of a good time!
