Outdoor cooking has gone above and beyond standing over the grill and waiting for your steak to reach the perfect point of tenderness.

A growing number of homeowners throughout the United States are bringing the indoors outside by building outdoor kitchens that include everything from refrigerators to warming drawers. These fully functioning kitchens include places to cook, cool and ventilate; the only thing you'll have to worry about is keeping Uncle Bob from stealing a hot dog off the grill.

When choosing appliances for an outdoor kitchen,look for models rated by Underwriters Laboratories and specified for outdoor use. "Appliances UL-rated for the outdoors are preferred because they are built for the humid and dusty conditions found outside," notes Ann Porter, the owner of Kitchen Studio of Naples. Nearly all outdoor appliances are made from stainless steel.
