Bright Ideas

• Plan your kitchen to suit your cooking style. Casual cooks may need only a grill island, while experienced chefs may want a rotisserie, smoker, warming drawers, or even a lobster-boil cooktop unit. Consider a large sink for cleaning the day’s catch.

• Pellet grills use small wood pellets to cook foods and infuse them with flavor. While these grills may cost more than traditional choices, they are clean burning and energy efficient.
