Grilling Stations - An Alternative to the Outdoor Kitchen

Think of it as a twist on the “outdoor kitchen." Outdoor kitchens tend to involve more elements - sinks, refrigerators, kegorators, sitting areas, fire pits, etc. - and thus take up a considerable amount of space. Grill stations are more compact and perfect for smaller outdoor spaces. In many cases they can be installed on wooden decks (if the decks meet building codes). 

A grilling station is a one stop shop for outdoor cooking.
