Backyard Barbecue Essentials in 2022
The outdoor kitchen is a modern design trend that has become increasingly more popular over the last decade. Always an Australian icon, the backyard BBQ has been elevated to be the pride of any outdoor kitchen. As more Australian homes are building indoor outdoor areas such as patios, entertaining decks and pergolas, Hudson Homes looks at your favourite backyard BBQ ideas, BBQ patio ideas, and the essentials for a BBQ backyard party in New South Wales and Queensland.
Outdoor Bar Furniture – Backyard BBQ and Bar Ideas
It’s a good idea to have a dedicated place to put your glassware, mixers, and cocktail shaker. This is so you’re not fetching them to and from the kitchen every time you have a BBQ backyard party. Outdoor bar furniture looks great and it’s practical! One of our favourite backyard BBQ and bar ideas is having a bar trolley or a rolling wagon. They are wheeled like your kitchen trolley and can hold your ice esky, soft drinks and mixers, glasses, and favourite alcoholic beverages.
Essentials for a BBQ – The Grill
The most important of all the essentials for a BBQ, is of course your grill. Barbeque grills are available as classic charcoal grills, electric powered grills, or gas grills. Many modern patios will have a permanent grill for entertaining. Your choice of grill is up to you. The charcoal grills have a great flavour, but electric grills are easy to power on or off. Modern style natural gas grills, that are connected to your household natural gas, need to be connected by professional installers. If you are using a traditional portable LPG gas bottle, make sure you check it first for safety.
Backyard BBQ Idea – Start the Party
Another backyard BBQ idea is to install Alfresco In-Ceiling Speakers to create an ambient entertaining space. Hudson Homes Technology Inclusions Package now features the option to include Alfresco In-Ceiling Speakers in your home build through the Technology Inclusions Add-On Package.
Ambient BBQ Patio Ideas – Light Up the Night
One of the best BBQ patio ideas to light up your night, is to hang a string of outdoor patio lights. Fairy lights or exposed bulbs will give your BBQ party an elevated atmosphere. You can get LED lights to save on power or invest in solar powered lights. It’s a simple solution that looks magical and adds that festive touch to your BBQ themes.
