Meat me on the patio: Amazing grill setups

In the spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, according to Tennyson. They also turn to that special grill that’s been out of use for most of the winter in much of the country. Whatever you prefer to throw on the barbecue, from steak to salmon to bananas (hey, we’ve seen it done), your mouth is sure to water at the sight of these amazing grill setups we found.

Some of them juice up the idea of a grill by incorporating the appliance into a full kitchen, complete with dishwasher and fridge. Others are paired with pizza ovens or smokers. One was converted from a 1920s-era cooker. Quite a few allow owners to take advantage of some amenities as they wait for their creations to cook: Play a game of bocce ball, soak in the hot tub, watch TV, or just enjoy the fireplace.

You might just fall in love with the brick grill-smoker combo designed by Kingbird. It has an adjustable charcoal grilling area, plus an enclosed smoking chamber, with adjustable racks and fire box. If that’s the case, you can check out the building plans, which are available for purchase from the company. Considering it’s located in Utah, it appears even the cold can’t deter the family from snowy cookouts.

If all the beauty you behold in this gallery inspires you to break out your own grill, you’ll definitely want to check out Digital Trend’s brother site, The Manual, for a great recipe for grilled lobster. And if your setup is looking a little lonely without the bocce ball court, you can check out our suggestions for great accessories. For some reason, we don’t have “a hot tub” on there, though.
