I've got a seperate shed for storage of ice chest, rib rack, spare shelves, etc. Right now it has a stack of split oak in it and a chipper/shredder. The ice chests, storage boxes, etc. are in the garage (1/2 the garage was enclosed by the previous owner for pantry and office - so I have the "front" half available for storage, shop, etc.)

A lot of this stuff migrated to the garage since I have the Kingfisher next to the driveway in the front of the house. I just setup one of the tables and voila', instant outdoor kitchen. Also, I got tired of schlepping it from the back everytime Tim and I headed out for a competition.

The WSM is residing on the lanai since it was raining the last time I used it. The gas grill is sited just out of the lanai area.

Eventually I'll get my "outdoor" kitchen put together and a seperate wood storage area setup.

Well... It depends on who you ask The deck is pretty much mine, but only because I have slowly expanded the room I need out there. Otherwise, I store stuff in the garage or basement when its no tin use.

Nice setup Kevin. My setup goes where ever I can taunt my neighbors the most. When we smoke, the neighbors behind us sit on their patio just to catch a wiff of sweet blue while wiping the drewel from their jowls.

Where I live land is tight. Most building lots are about 25 feet wide by 90 feet long.

My property is 50x100 so I'm a land baron. Even with the extra space, wherever the smoker is at a given time, is the kitchen space for the day.
