Kitchen Gazebo-Shed

  1. Not sure if this is the right place. What I am looking to do is build a Kitchen Gazebo or a shed for cooking. The North Dakota weather can get brutal and not going to stop me from BBQ'ing in the winter. My thoughts were to build a 8x12 to 10x12 shed with lots of windows, good ventilation, exhaust vent, etc. Have BBQ grill inside, build a cedar smokehouse or buy a Bradley, and have my other cooking tools in there such as my Caso and deep fryer. Sink and counter top.

    Whole lot easier to cook outdoors in shed than to do all the cooking in the house.

    As I am thinking of all this I am beginning to think about building this on my 16' trailer and be able to use my big smoker. Not sure how HOA would react with a rolling kitchen.

    Any suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hello Ron.  If I were going to do this I would just vent the exhaust from the smoker straight out the top of the shed.  No fans needed.  NOW that will change how the smoker performs because of the longer stack but that can be allowed for and adjustments can be made.  It could be trailer mounted but considering the movement of the trailer the shed/smokehouse would have to be REALLY solid or the leaks would start to occur.  Just my opinion.  Others may have better advice.  [​IMG]   Keep Smokin!

  3. That was one of my first thoughts on the smoker. But as I think more about the cooking shed, I want to use ALL of my cooking equipment. BBQ with a custom built griddle, Caso, fryer and build another smoker which will have it's own stack. I am going to build walls around my existing smoker since it's built on a trailer.

    Still in the planning stages, just need to get the floors set before the ground freezes.

    The biggest used item is my gas BBQ grill with the griddle. I do a lot of cooking on it. The griddle is my biggest best cooker I have done. Cooking pancakes, hash browns, bacon, sausage, you name it for breakfast. Then hamburgers with grilled onions, shrooms, etc. Easier than cooking on a small griddle for a household of 7 people plus a few extras that come over.

    Ok, ranting on.

    Have a Great Weekend.
