Sam The Cooking Guy's Backyard Kitchen

My Backyard

After a couple of shows aired that I shot in my backyard, I got a lot of requests for pics.

Our days of needing open space for little kids are over and now it’s our turn - yay… I mean, oh darn. So we built out a huge island and put an Evo (flat top) grill right in the center of it. And now I'm one happy cooking guy.

This all works, of course, because I live in San Diego, where if you build it, you will use it... because you can pretty much all year long. We live outside almost as much as we live inside. If you've been thinking about doing something outside, (no matter how large or small), and need some encouragement - here you go: JUST FRICKING DO IT - YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID.

We thought it would be fun to document the buildout of the kitchen by creating a short time-lapse. So we took one picture every 3 minutes during the construction. You can see the time-lapse video here.
