In Minnesota, when the winter weather starts creeping above freezing, I start pulling my shorts out of storage.
And especially this past Super Bowl Sunday, I started thinking of how much I’d like having a kitchen outdoors.
Outdoor kitchen designs usually always include a gas grill. And sometimes, gas grills are built in to a grill island, which offers counterspace and — more interestingly to this blog — space for more outdoor kitchen appliances.
(I’m going to feature several outdoor kitchen ideas over the next week or so, so subscribe to my blog and you won’t miss any of the beautiful outdoor kitchens photos you know are coming. See instructions.)
Outdoor gas wok / gas cooker
from Viking Outdoor Kitchen
Unlike any outdoor gas burner, the Viking outdoor wok burner/gas cooker just has more power. The super-high 27,500 BTU burner handles huge stir-fry portions, and a center trivet converts for large stock pots – perfect for crab or shrimp boils.
All that power means you can saute super fast in the 20-inch wide steel wok, but the wok burner also has enough control to let you simmer at low temperatures.
You can choose to run the WFWT241T on either an LP tank or a natural gas line using an easy, push-button electric ignition. The large knob carries easy-to-read labels, but is childproof, so you don’t have to worry about curious little hands.
The removable, stainless steel pull-out drip tray and grease pan makes clean-up easy.
Plus, it just looks really good, doesn’t it?
