Sa­vor the fla­vors of al fresco meals with de­li­cious out­door kitchens like these.

Keep it in Line (above)

A long, nar­row lot is the per­fect place for a lin­ear out­door kitchen. An­chored by a fire­place and mounted out­door TV, the res­i­dent chef never has his or her back turned to guests. The post-and-beam cov­er­ing makes the space even more warm and invit­ing.

Party Cen­tral (left)

Who wouldn’t want to be in­vited to a BBQ at this house? A water­fall pro­vides the sound­track for the cov­ered cook­ing/ din­ing zone, which of­fers pro­tec­tion from the sum­mer sun, while the fire pit keeps the fun go­ing well into the off-sea­son. Joined by a re­lax­ing hot tub, this out­door liv­ing space is cer­tainly the place to be.

Stone in Love (be­low)

Some­times, the ba­sics will do just fine, and this out­door kitch­enette is a prime ex­am­ple that you don’t have to be elab­o­rate to en­joy cook­ing out­doors. Lo­cated on the lower-level pa­tio, the stone foun­da­tion, floor­ing and is­land sur­round are fire-safe and easy to clean.

Let the Good Times Roll (bot­tom)

This space is tricked out for the party of all par­ties! Join­ing the gas grill in the ar­ray of cook­ing op­tions is a ka­ma­dostyle cooker and a wood-fired pizza oven. Tons of seat­ing suits a crowd, and the tim­ber-framed pav­il­ion al­lows the fes­tiv­i­ties to go on, rain or shine.

Rus­tic Fare (above)

Rus­tic posts frame the lush woodsy view from this out­door culi­nary area. The cen­ter­piece is the grill, of course, but it’s ac­com­pa­nied by a gas cook­top, and a warm­ing drawer, plus a minifridge and a wine cooler.

Fire­side De­light (right)

This out­door space is much more than a kitchen — it’s an out­door great room in a com­pact space. A stone fire­place flanked by comfy seat­ing is strate­gi­cally placed near the cook­ing area, which also fea­tures a raised break­fast bar.
