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

We had very high expectations when Texas Custom Patios began construction on our back patio space. Because our roofline has a steep pitch and the odd location of our chimney, we were concerned about whether the addition would flow seamlessly with the rest of the roofline. Steven and his crews far exceeded our expectations. Professional and attentive to our concerns, Texas Custom Patios created the outdoor space we’ve always wanted – only better.
