For the past few years, I've cooked on a variety of pits at home. Each time, I've moved the pit from the garage to the edge of the driveway or onto the lawn. The benefit is that my BBQ Pits (I have more than one, doesn't everybody?) are stored indoors. The downside, my cars are not.
So, I've decided that I'd like to get my cars in the garage. But, I didn't really have a great place to keep the BBQ gear and I wasn't sure about storing my gear outdoors. Recently, I took the first step in solving this problem and laid pavers behind the garage. So far, I couldn't be happier with the result. I've got 2 of 3 cars in the gargage and a dedicated space for cooking. I've ordered a cover for my Big Green Egg and table and I'm about to order one for my Backwoods cooker.
Some time in the future, I could see a cover on this space. But that's a blog post for another day and at a time when the finances could support something more.
