Thanks guys, will answer questions as I can .. So first , here’s a larger panned out view that shows the relationship to the terrace and pool . When we first designed it , I wanted a courtyard feel sort of, so adjacent the space is a outdoor living room and fireplace and of course the pool. We are able to place (12), 8 top round tables in this area as well for events/dinners and serve directly out of this kitchen .

The kitchen can still be ‘outdoor’ by opening up the Marvin lift and slide doors as they disappear into a pocket in the wall, along for a 12’ or so wide opening into the cooking space. It’s a nice because the floor has no threshold to step over or trip over .

Beautiful layout. The front facing view of the marsh land? looks so inviting. Just put me in the "ourdoor kitchen" and I'd be a happy camper. I'm use to sleeping on the ground in an old Army sleeping bag. What do you want me to prepare? I have a great 10 spice kielbasa and a LOT of European wurst recipes!

Thanks, the back faces the wetlands and ocean - appreciate the compliments!

Here's a little more on the island...

On the back side, we have a 2 basket, gas fryer . And a braising pan/tilt skillet.

Not a lot to say about the fryer, it works as expected. I do like that it's gas, a huge improvement over my home fryer that takes forever to recover on temps.

And now the tilt skillet . I love this piece. Where to start..?!

So for those not familiar, it's a big pan that can be used for liquids or like a flat top.

Here's a few pics.

I use it for tons of soups, jambalaya, Bolognese, etc.

You could also use it like a flat top and cook a ton of bacon, or eggs, or pancakes, if you have a big crowd. Stir fry veggies for 100 people? No problem with this machine.

Here's a few jambalaya pics . To start, I'll blacken the chicken in butter in the pan, add sausage, and then remove and fill with rice / water. I add the veggies closer to the end. Anyone know who this guy is?

Folding the diced chicken and sausage in after rice is started.

In terms of amounts, I'll usually do around 30 pounds of chicken and 20 pounds of sausage in a batch.

Sauces, soups are really fun to make. A cold winter Sunday goes by fast when I make a 30 gallon batch of soup. WIll cook it literally all day and not finish up until 10-11 PM.

For a school fundraiser a couple years back we cooked 150 gallons of "Bolognese diablo" for 1100 people .

In case anyone not familiar wants to see why it's called a tilt skillet. ..

And last, I'm glad it's electric.. the preferred heat source for these.. makes it easier to control temps. The thermostat works well except the relay is fairly loud turning it on and off all the time. You drown it out with music and friends pretty easy, though.
