Fire Pits & BBQ’s
Fire pits have become a “must have” addition to any landscape. Many are opting for stone fire pits that are set into the ground. How great would it be to relax around a fire while toasting marshmallows and s’mores on cool evening with friends and family? Let our team of contractors custom design and install a fire pit that will allow you to enjoy the outdoors all year round.
Cooking Over Fire Pits
One of the best features of fire pits are their versatility. Although it’s not the first thing you’d think of, a fire pit can feed a crowd, either through roasting or grilling.
If you want to slow cook over an open flame, you can slowly feed the pit firewood as you slowly rotate the meat on a spit, getting an even consistency that saves all the natural flavors.
If you’re looking for a more traditional experience, fire pits can be covered with grills, using charcoal or firewood as a heat source. Firewood tends to impart its flavors to the food you grill over it, so you can bathe your meat in cherry wood, apple wood, maple or any number of wood essences.
A fire pit is typically larger than your standard barbecue grill, so it’s ready to cook for a crowd.
Barbecues Keep the Party Going
Anyone who has hosted a backyard party knows they can be hectic affairs. With people going in and out for food and drinks and the host playing air traffic controller.
Adding a barbecue to your backyard arsenal makes everything easier. No longer will you have to split your time between your parties and your cooking. The cook can also entertain the guests and doesn’t have to miss out on all the fun.
When you pair the barbecue with an outdoor kitchen, you also get extra dining space and a new congregation point where guests can interact with the cook and each other. An outdoor kitchen is a piece that any future owner will love, adding value to your property and a highlight to any home tour.
