Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon celery seed
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3-1/2 to 4 pounds each), cut up

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, saute garlic in butter until tender. Add the next 8 ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • On a lightly greased grill rack, grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Baste with sauce. Grill 15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reaches 170°, basting and turning several times.

Test Kitchen Tips

  • This sauce is best when made a day or two in advance, giving the flavors time to come together.
  • If you don’t have chili sauce on hand, you can use 1/4 cup extra ketchup or 1/4 cup cocktail sauce.
  • Try this cool-guy move if you don’t have a basting brush: Tie a few sprigs of rosemary or another hearty herb together with twine, then baste with it.

Outdoor Kitchen Component List – Essentials on a Budget

The Essential Outdoor Kitchen Component List to Include When On a Budget

We understand that not everyone is a Rockefeller; that’s why we assembled this article that covers the essentials where it concerns outdoor living.

Your outdoor kitchen is built primarily for one purpose, and that’s to house your professional barbecue grill. Running back and forth from your indoor kitchen to your outdoor kitchen happens, but if we can help you reduce those trips, we’re all for it. Most people don’t just eat barbecue when they grill. You tend to serve the meal with a few side dishes. So, the first must-have component of the list is going to be a side burner/s (preferably a double side burner, to heat more than one side).

The Essentials Article The Side Burner - Elegant Outdoor Kitchens

This precision cut, handmade side burner is made of stainless steel and will provide you years of outdoor cooking enjoyment. If you are looking to create a gourmet outdoor meal complete with soups or side dishes, a drop-in side burner is an ideal addition to your outdoor kitchen. As of March 15, 2016 — Blaze side burners have a lifetime warranty that warrants against any defects in the manufacturing and workmanship of the burner, burner grate, body, lid, and control valve. While the ignition system is covered for one (1) year after the date of purchase. The product must be registered within thirty days for the warranty to apply.

Next on our essential outdoor kitchen component list is the built-in mini-refrigerator. There’s just something so satisfying about having quick access to a cold beverage. Believe us when we say that this mini fridge will get its use.

The Blaze 4.5 Compact Refrigerator is the ideal space-saving solution for family rooms, game rooms, apartments or anywhere else. Interior design offers plenty of shelf space for all your favorite refreshments and foods. The refrigerator, including the compressor, is warranted for 1 year to the original owner against defects in manufacturing and workmanship.

The Mandatory Outdoor Kitchen Component

The last item on our essentials list is a functional requirement. It serves a few purposes, the first being the accessibility to your internal gas, electrical, and plumbing lines for your barbecue grill and any other components you install, and the second is acting as a dry storage area. Your outdoor kitchen cabinet has plenty of space that you can convert into a dry storage area. Depending on the size of your outdoor kitchen, you’ll need to install at least one access door. In our experience, though, a combination access door and drawer unit will only lend to both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your outdoor living area.

There are a plethora of other components that can you can add that will expand the functionality of your outdoor living space. You can add elements such as a trash receptacle, sink & faucet, ice maker, warming drawer, ice maker, beverage station, ice bin, power burner, and many other components. You can, in my opinion, make your outdoor living area better than your indoor kitchen, and some people do just that.

Recipe: Margarita Grilled Shrimp

The shrimp can be marinated 3 hours before putting it on the grill. This is also a great marinade for chicken.

3 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp.
fresh lime juice
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp. tequila
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
