Recipe of the Month: The MVP Guide to Grilling

August 17, 2016 Outdoor Celebrations, Outdoor Cooking

It’s that time of year where everyone gets together for a football and food frenzy.  If you can’t be at the game, aim for the next best thing:  watch the game with friends in the comfort of your own outdoor living room.    So ditch the truck tailgate and fire up the grill in your backyard for a “pigskin” pregame party.

When establishing your outdoor kitchen, don’t limit yourself to a little charcoal griller out on the driveway.  Your outdoor cook space can be fully stocked with every appliance and convenience you need for cooking a backyard football feast. Just think about cooking outside without having to make trips back and forth into the house!
Consider all the elements of a high-function cooking area:
  • Built-in gas grill
  • Sideburner
  • Pizza oven
  • Drawers and cabinets
  • Raised bar top and counter space
  • Sinks
  • Refrigerator
  • Ice maker
  • Wine cooler

… just something to think about!

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios were a great pleasure to work with on our outdoor addition. They listened intently to what we wanted to create, and gave expert advise on how to make it work. The workers were extremely professional and very clean. The workmanship was superior and the quality of products used was the best. Almost a year after completion they are still in contact and making sure we are still pleased with their work. I could not imagine not using them for a project.
