As fall approaches and football season kicks off, now is an ideal time to ensure your outdoor kitchen is ready for game day and other gatherings. A proper grilling station is a must for when you have friends over for any sporting event, but there are additional elements you can add to your space that will make your outdoor entertaining efforts go the extra yard. Here are some additions you can add to enhance your entertaining capabilities and impress your guests as you cheer on your favorite team.

Beverage Centers

A variety of refreshing drinks is an absolute must for any game day celebration, and today’s high-end technology allows for optimal refrigeration even in your outdoor space. Whether you’re looking for glass doors or wine shelving, beverage centers offer features designed specifically for added convenience and class. With under-counter designs, you can integrate a beverage center into your outdoor kitchen with ease, so your guests can enjoy cold refreshments without having to trek all the way inside.

Beer Taps

Beer is the drink of choice for many sports fans, and you just can’t tailgate properly without it. While your guests may be happy with an assortment of cans and bottles, access to suds on tap can elevate the drinking experience even more. With dual tap and single tap options available, you can select a beer dispenser that will allow your guests to pour pints of their favorites as if they’re at a private bar.

Adding a smoker to the equation will expand your outdoor cooking possibilities and refine the flavor of your meat and seafood dishes. Offering tender texture and rich flavors, smokers allow you to look beyond game-day classics like burgers and hotdogs and instead wow your guests with exceptional dishes such as BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Pizza Oven

With so much cheering and socializing, handheld foods are always a great option for tailgating parties. Among these foods is the ultimate crowd-pleaser: pizza. But if you’re looking to provide slices that go above and beyond your average pie, an outdoor pizza oven is a must. Your guests aren’t all going to be hungry at once, and heading back and forth to the kitchen to throw a pizza in the oven during the game isn’t ideal. Add convenience and a flavorful touch to your outdoor gatherings with a pizza oven.

Outdoor TV

When the weather is nice, you don’t want to have to force your guests inside to watch the big game. Having a television set up in your outdoor kitchen can allow you to grill and access your refreshment center or beer dispenser without missing any part of the game.
