It’s barbeque time! But if you’re sick of lugging gas bottles to and from the hardware store or running out of gas when entertaining friends, catch these cool tips to make your big Aussie Barbie more fun this summer.

Savvy Outdoor Kitchens

Tip 1:  Ditch the bottle. Embrace the bayonet!

Bottled gas barbeques are great but there’s always the worry they’ll run out of gas in the middle of entertaining guests.

If you’d like to eliminate that worry from your life, talk to Shaun about converting your LPG gas barbeque to natural gas. He’ll simply run a pipe from your existing gas connection to your barbeque area.

Tip 2:  Add a pizza oven

Barbeques aren’t the only way to cook outside. Gas pizza ovens are a great addition to your outdoor entertaining areas.  They are easier to use and clean than wood-fired pizza ovens but still produce delicious pizzas every time.

If you’d like to add a pizza oven to your outdoor cooking space, ask Shaun to install a gas bayonet to light your pizza oven.

Tip 3:  Outdoor kitchens – the summer entertainer’s friend

If you love entertaining, an outdoor kitchen will make your life so much easier – and these days, they’re only limited by your imagination and space!

Add a bar sink, a dishwasher, built-in barbeque and fridge. Shaun can help you with all the plumbing and gas fitting or work with your builder to create your at-home, outdoor resort.

Tip 4:  Not just for summer

Over spring and autumn, sitting outside on cool days or crisp evenings can be very pleasant with a little heating. That’s why you might like to consider including a natural gas fire pit in your outdoor area. Like the natural gas bayonets for your barbeque or pizza oven, Shaun can run the piping to your firepit.

Tip 5:  Outdoor living with inside style

Aussie backyards are more like an extension of our living rooms than ever before. So when you are planning your outdoor kitchen or outdoor entertainment area, think about things like lighting, outdoor rugs, lounges, dinning settings and even blinds or sunscreens. Incorporate some of your indoor style elements to complement your home or create a totally different vibe using a different colour palate, textures and furniture styles.
