First question is about the appliances you use in an out door kitchen.
I have gone to a BBQ Outdoor Kitchen Retail store, that builds kitchens for homeowners) in north Dallas and looked at some equipment. They will sell them to me, granted I have not looked at the places some of you have suggested on line yet.
I like touching a product first since I can't tell the quality in a picture. I also hate being wrong about telling a customer that this is the best product, if I don't know and haven't even seen one. I rely on you guys (and women) to put me on the right track.
They recommended three products 1. the Somerset, lower end line, 2. the Somerset mid range line, and then 3. the Twin Eagles a higher end product. The difference in the weight of the grill lid was amazing. The cost was also amazing, I could buy a pretty nice boat for that.
What brands do you prefer? Do you install doors and drawers or just doors? I will put my bottles underneath the deck, plenty of room.
Second question do you know anything about Thermory wood looks a lot like Ipe with a similar warranty. It also has an interesting, Jem-Joint on the board ends that allows for expansion. The boards are beautiful and a distinctive grain.
In advance thank you for your opinions and your time.
