Brunswick Crossing: Green Outdoor Kitchens


Brunswick Crossing is enjoying the spring weather! Fire up the grills and lets go outside. From the simple fire pit to the lavish outdoor cooking grills, nothing tastes better than grill fired meats, fish, and vegetables.

It is not only inside of the house where people are going green but outside as well. Homeowners are getting creative with their outdoor space to try to spend more time outside. One place they are starting is with outdoor kitchens and companies are getting just as creative to meet those needs. R.H. Peterson’s Fire Magic grills come with a unique solar panel that powers internal lights, the rotisserie motor, and the ignition. While this may not sound like a normal option for your outdoor kitchen, there is a practical side. As more homeowners are adding outdoor kitchens to their backyards as an add-on to an existing home, issues such as running electrical service to backyards can represent another hurdle to completing your dream outdoor kitchen. To solve that problem this grill pulls the solar energy from the sun.

Other ideas include creating seating areas with a synthetic wood or add a pop of green from synthetic grass. Do you want a fire pit? You can take an old syrup kettle and refurbish it into a fire pit eliminating it from going to the landfill. To create an outdoor counter space for your cooking you can use wood from salvaged trees to reduce the pressure on cutting existing tress. If you would like a patio to finish the perfect look for your outdoor kitchen you can create the look with ECOsurfaces recycled rubber flooring. ECOmax recycled rubber floor tiles are designed for a variety of uses, including rooftops, patio walkways, pool surrounds and playground areas. The modular, yet extremely durable pedestal tile system complies with resiliency requirements established by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

There are designs for outdoor cooking with every budget in mind. Fire pits not only serve to grill outdoors, but also give a warm touch to enjoy that cool summer evening. Gather round with marshmallows and make s'mores for dessert! Those that love entertaining a crowd and outdoor cooking is their specialty, look for the outdoor kitchen with everything from a small refrigerator, gas grill, cook-top burners and cabinets. Wow the crowd with gourmet grilling.
