// 3 The Prep Area
Do you see yourself prepping food outdoors? If so, you will likely need a: Sink
Built-in waste cabinet
Prep area fridge with a crisper drawer
Side burner for food items that will be pre-cooked before a final grilling or searing. On the other hand, if your outdoor kitchen is a few feet from your indoor kitchen, and moving back and forth between them is no concern, then your prep area may only need to include open counter space (we recommend 36” in length) and cupboards beneath. Make sure you have enough space, easy access, and easy waste disposal.
