Who needs to tackle summer traffic at the beach to get a perfectly cooked steak? For many people the idea of an outdoor kitchen is somewhat whimsy! What’s wrong with that? One of the best sources for outdoor kitchen combinations is Viking, which still manaufactures all its “Made in America” products from their home base in Greenwood Mississippi.
This beautiful lakeside kitchen provides everything you expect from a kitchen – except the walls. Featured Viking appliances include a 41” w. built-in gas grill with rotisserie, an outdoor warming drawer to keep food fresh and warm as it comes off the fire, gas double side burners and an outdoor beverage refrigerator.
A combination of wood cabinets and Viking stainless steel cabinets house all the appliances and even a sink, providing the ultimate in outdoor living.

Outdoor kitchens are not typically ‘by the lake’ such as the one pictured above, but more likely seen as an extension of the home. Here are three tips when deciding placement: The outdoor kitchen should be as within a reasonable area near the main home and its kitchen to allow for ease in entertaining and to also reduce some costs by using existing pipes and plumbing. Most people like a buffer wall for protection from wind and inclement weather.
Finally, take into account the layout of the home, outdoor kitchen and landscape. It you don’t have an area facing west to enjoy rosy summer sunsets, maybe now is the time to let Mother Nature be your clients ‘wall art.’
