Like most outdoor additions, an outdoor kitchen and grill will raise the resale value of your home, provide additional areas for entertaining, extend the living space of your home, and make cooking easier. Outdoor kitchens and grills are the most fantastic element of the new fun and cooking space, so make sure to choose one that matches your needs and your cooking area. There are many different varieties of outdoor grills, so you’re likely to find one that fits both your demands and your budget.

Outdoor Grills Come in a Variety of Styles

Gas Grills: This is the most popular type of outdoor barbecue. It can run on either propane or natural gas and be connected to an existing house gas connection. They are ideal for cooking for large groups of people because they cook food faster. Gas outdoor grills are available in black or aluminum and can have up to five burners, depending on your budget.

Charcoal Grills: Charcoal briquettes power this type of outdoor grill. Cooking using a charcoal barbecue takes longer, but many people enjoy the flavor of items cooked on charcoal outdoor grills. If you want a more smoky flavor, consider using a kettle grill, or if you want to be able to smoke huge portions of meat like brisket, consider using a horizontal barrel grill.

You should think about the type of cooking surface as part of the outdoor grill selection process. Porcelain-covered steel bars, bent stainless steel sheets, iron grates, and stainless steel bars are the most common. The porcelain grate is more expensive but lasts longer; stainless steel is less expensive and easier to maintain but has a shorter lifespan; cast iron is easy to maintain and produces great-looking grill marks, and stainless steel grill bars can lose some of their nonstick-ability and become chipped, but they last a long time.

Other features of today’s outdoor grills extend cooking outside beyond the grill surface. Convection ovens, warming burners, cooking basket skewers, rotisserie attachment, under-drawer storage, steam cleaning or sprayer accessories, and built-in sound systems are among the features. Many people realize that their outdoor kitchens are even more efficient than their house kitchens due to developments in outdoor grills.

Of course, what you grill contributes to the overall appearance of your outdoor barbecue. Brick, stone, stone veneer, stucco, and other masonry alternatives can be used to encase outdoor grills and BBQs. Outdoor grills and kitchens are ideal for extending the interior and making your home the destination for all neighborhood and family gatherings. If you have any questions regarding having an outdoor grill placed in your new or existing outdoor kitchen, contact J. Allen Masonry. We can advise you on the appropriate style of outdoor grill or BBQ pit for your location.

Constructing your Built-in Grills or Outdoor Kitchen

J. Allen Masonry provides high-end built-in grills and outdoor kitchens that are expertly installed across Indianapolis and the neighboring areas. The kitchen is regarded to be the heart of the home. However, there are occasions when the space in your home’s kitchen is simply insufficient to accommodate all of your friends and family. Yes, you want to amuse your visitors, but you also want to interact with them. Here comes the outdoor kitchen design.

Outdoor kitchens have become a popular living environment in recent years. They can incorporate various amenities like pizza ovens, wet bars, side burners, smokers, stone countertops, warming drawers, roasting spits, and various other aspects that you may find necessary for the outdoor kitchen. Of course, a kitchen isn’t just for cooking; it’s also for visiting, so the ideal outdoor cooking area would be incomplete without a seating space or even a fireplace with a hearth for cooler evenings!

There are several factors to consider when designing a built-in barbecue or outdoor kitchen. After all, having more space isn’t as important as having functional space for an outdoor kitchen. Whether you choose stamped concrete flooring or a gazebo-style floor plan, the goal is to have the outdoor kitchen of your dreams built in a way that meets and surpasses your expectations.

Factors to Consider When Designing an Outdoor Kitchen or built-in barbeque

Cooking Space: Because it will be a kitchen, think about the type of cooking you intend to undertake. Consider what essential culinary elements would be most commonly used, and then choose those that J. Allen can use in an outside setting. This is also a good moment to consider quality over quantity. Your outdoor kitchen does not require every culinary appliance available, only the best that your money allows.


Function: What are your plans for your freshly built outdoor kitchen? When working with J. Allen Masonry’s Outdoor Kitchens professionals for your Indiana home, be sure to express your vision for how you plan to use your new space. If your new kitchen will be located near a pool, consider how the two areas will interact. You’ll also need to decide whether or not to cover the space. The summer weather in Indiana can be sweltering. A covered outdoor cooking area can help to reduce the sun’s scorching beams. As you consider the function of your kitchen, consider how close to your home you want your outdoor kitchen to be.

Seating: J. Allen should construct your outdoor kitchen with plenty of seating in mind. You want lots of relaxing and visiting areas, whether it has a space for a patio table and chairs, built-in seating, or a bar top.

Lights: When designing your outdoor kitchen, don’t forget about the lighting! The atmosphere is crucial. Consider lighting that highlights the architectural components; you’ll also want lighting that makes any path to your outdoor kitchen visible at night.

Not all built-in grills or outdoor kitchens are created the same way. When planning an outdoor kitchen, make sure it is a welcome atmosphere that allows you to produce tasty meals effortlessly, creates lovely memories of family and friends, and gives space that you can use for any occasion. The J. Allen Masonry team is eager to hear your ideas for your ideal outdoor cooking area and transform them from designs to a wonderfully crafted work of art that you will be able to admire for years to come.
