How to Get Your Outdoor Kitchen Ready for BBQ Season

Kennedy 9Outdoor BBQs are a great way to spend time relaxing with family and friends.  These tips will  help you prep your outdoor kitchen for your Memorial Day BBQ.

Outdoor Kitchen Prep Tips:

  • Keep Storage in Mind – Having the right storage areas in your outdoor kitchen will help make meal prep simple.  Leave room for trash and recycling bins and places to hold napkins, glasses and cleaning supplies.
  • Stock Up on Plates and Utensils – If you plan on using paper plates, napkins and towels for your BBQs, make sure that you stock up on the a couple of days before your BBQ.
  • Put Ingredients Within Reach  – Take advantage of the outdoors and plant homegrown vegetables and herbs near your kitchen.  You can even keep some plants nearby in a pot, like basil,  for ready-to-pick ingredients when cooking.
  • Clean Up Debris – After a long winter, you’ll need to clean up the areas around your kitchen.  Tiles that are easy to sweep can be a great addition to your outdoor kitchen.
