If you’ve been following Redwood Stone for a while I’m sure you will have guessed that when it comes to outdoor cooking I am not the sort of guy to go for a glitzy all singing, all dancing affair that costs almost as much as the average house and never gets used! I’ve heard recently that customers are requesting dishwashers outdoors – really!?
For me the essentials are space for a traditional bbq, charcoal storage, herb planters, plenty of work surface, shelving and a no-nonsense Ice Bucket – with lid. If I’m feeling really needy I might put in a small stone sink as a nod to the dishwasher.
Of course the BBQ is the main piece of kit, something simple easy, but that can be raised and lowered. Once my guests have topped up from the Ice Bucket they’ll love to come over and watch me murder these steaks!
Talking of Ice Buckets here’s the one we appropriately call a Large Dinking Trough! The stone acts as insulating and the ice lasts all day, often right through to the next morning if it’s an all-nighter. If there isn’t enough room in this one for you then the Large Font can act as back up.
The flame grilling is underway and the party is about to begin. This BBQ is a one-off but we will be featuring readily available alternatives in due course. Do watch this space. PS Other Oils and Mustards are available.
Now that’s an outdoor kitchen medieval style, a talking point, practical, charming and set in a Gothic Folly backdrop. Anyone for a spot after dinner of jousting?!
