Kitchen Incognito

Summer may be on the wane, but that's no cause to give up on the grill. As the Human Torch would say, 'Flame on!'

Screening out the less aesthetic elements of an outdoor kitchen seems like a good idea to me, and this slatted structure does a fine job of it. My one hesitation about this design is that the counter seating could stratify the experience; it sets up a rigid host/guest dynamic. I like alfresco cooking to be a more communal experience.
