Outdoor kitchens have continued to grow in popularity since there first emerging on the market several decades ago. They are however growing at a much quicker rate now thanks to outdoor television programs such as Yard Crashers and Extra Yardage.
With new home construction starting to come back, outdoor kitchens are starting to be incorporated into the new home designs. Plumbing stubs, electrical outlets and drains are being added to construction plans to add the outdoor kitchens during the construction phase or soon thereafter. Something that was once a luxury item thought of only for the rich is now being realized as an affordable, practical feature for even modest homes.
