Cooking Outdoors in True Ranch Style

A smoky hint to the air...starry skies that never seem to end...the laughter of friends, fishing stories, and wildlife encounters over dinner echoing into the night…


Cooking outdoors is at the heart of the ranch lifestyle. No ranch is complete without a full suite of methods to cook and entertain in the fresh air, including BBQ pits, outdoor kitchens, meat smokers, and a spacious patio to eat on.

  • BBQ Pit - Nothing lends credibility to your rancher personality better than a BBQ pit. Just as the cowboys and ranch hands used to do in the Wild West, gather your companions around a big smoky fire to watch the steaks sizzle or the skin crisp up on that trout you caught that morning.
  • Outdoor Kitchen - For a more modern take on cooking in the great outdoors, a fully outfitted outdoor kitchen will make sure you have all the luxuries of a chef's kitchen right outside on your patio. You'll have room to prep vegetables for the grill or mix up a batch of margaritas with counter space to spare.
  • Meat Smokers - For someone who smokes their own meats, there is no higher honor than the slight smell of smoke that clings to your hair after you walk away--unless it's that first crisp, savory bite of pork rib that's been smoking for hours. Whether you're a fan of the egg style smoker or the horizontal smoker you see at competitions, a smoker is a necessary addition to your ranch's outdoor cooking space.
  • Spacious Patios - A large patio ensures you have plenty of room to entertain any sort of crowd. You'll have the space for adults to mingle and relax with a drink. If you add kids to that mix, they'll have plenty of room to play outside within safe eyesight of parents on the patio.


Cooking outdoors, surrounded by friends and family, is the epitome of the ranch lifestyle and few things create memories like a good meal.
