Bkk Outdoor Kitchen/BBQ Area?

Recommended Posts

"Our" garden has a small outdoor area which we don't utilise...we want to add a roof to cover a small kitchen with a sink, fridge, gas cookers, bbq, washing machine, maybe an oven etc

 

I hope this kitchen/bbq area can be a bit nicer than the usual "Thai style" kitchen.

 

Something a bit like this:

With a "privacy screen/fence" (but using composite):

 

(And smooth side up? In the UK I've always seen the grooved side up? (apparently wrongly???)

I have searched the Forum but I am really struggling to find any links for items which might be suitable for use outside?

This place does some fantastic outdoor ceiling fans:

Outdoor furniture, but very $$$ - used by some high end hotels and housing developments (probably for ideas/inspiration only! 😀)

Any other recommendations for contractors, suppliers or websites in Bangkok or the surrounding areas?

My recommendation is anything that will be outdoors should be made of Stainless Steel. It will hold up well. I would do the sink, Thai stove and BBQ out of SST. The frame could be made out of cement and tile. 

 

Nice design idea. As another suggestion, Make sure that you have a hood over the Thai Stove to draw fumes away or that area will become smoked out when cooking occurs.  Hoods are really inexpensive

 

Good Luck

Cheers.

 

I was thinking of contacting Quick fire and getting them to design a kitchen but they are the other end of the country in Udon Thani I believe?

 

I'd probably like a Thai (cheaper) version of these?

 

E.g.

https://www.barbequesgalore.com.au/premium-beefmaster-6-burner-with-side-burner-on-cart-with-bench-and-sink

 

EDIT - had a quick google for "stainless steel kitchen bangkok" - might be a bit overkill.

It's "Quik-Fire" (.com) and yes, located in Udon Thani.  Not sure if Doc does kitchen design but he's built up quite a variety of "BBQ" grills over the years.  I prefer the counter-top design and mine (similar to what he now calls "SS Crown") has been in operation for over 6 years with no issues.  I'm pretty sure he will ship.

 

Do you have experience with outdoor grilling or does it just seem like a good idea?

I can recommend BBQTHAI.com for bouying the actual appliances, i am a many year customers there and they are always decent, even help me smuggle in the forbidden gas cans :X

 

I am not sure they design outdoor spaces tho? 

 

I would just go to a random architect studio/landscaper in bkk and let him have a look at it, they know where to buy the stuff and often get a discount for bringing repeated customers.

No real experience - I'm from the UK - it just seems like a good idea! 😀

I will contact https://www.thaigardendesign.com/ which is run by a Brit to get a rough idea and a quote for the decking, roof etc.

 

This again looks promising but might be a bit spendy!

OK.  I suggest you start with an inexpensive charcoal grill instead of what can amount to a LOT of money for equipment that might end up collecting dust.  Setting up an outdoor cooking area can be done in such a way that you can easily upgrade your cooking choices.  Most charcoal grills only last a few years but are arguably better for getting that grilled taste.  And you will need to learn when to use direct heat versus indirect and when you need to fiddle with the meat or just leave it alone for the perfect result.  If it turns out you just can't be bothered with the attention you need to give while grilling or end up burning everything (well, being from the UK that might be desirable 😎), then at least you're not out the big bucks for "professional" kit.

Most small Thai  cities have several stainless steel fabricators making basic work tables and fixtures for local restaurants.  You might be able to have such a shop build a decent workstation and hood for a lot less money

I BBQ 3 or 4 times a week. Can vary from Salmon/Chicken/Ribs to an occasional steak and of course Veggies or corn on the cob. My wife loves grilling the big shrimp. Wife really likes the grill.  We have a completely detached outside kitchen and my BBQ pit is outside under  an awning cover. Its a large 3 burner grill with a burner on the left that my wife uses for big pots of soup and does not want her kitchen to get to hot. Had it here for 5 years and works perfectly. 

 

That said to Razz, if you buy something new I highly encourage you to buy a full set of replacement burners. I say this as models change and then they discontinue the burners. I brought my BBQ pit over from the states when we moved and I bought 3 extra sets. First set lasted 3 years.  I should be covered for another 8 or so years. Maybe more.

That's good advice for many of the products out there.  But, I can attest that would not be necessary for a Quik-Fire grill.  That is one of the most durable grills I have ever owned and could rival a top of line Weber IMO.

I got one of the small weber gas grills, think they are ideal for beginners. Charcoal might <deleted> off the neighbours... i use a bit of liquid smoke instead to get the taste.

 

https://bbqthai.com/product/3312/ got this one, would say its more than enough for every beginner with a small family.

Quality of product goes a long ways most certainly.  At lot will depend on how much one uses their grill. The gas diffusors while made of SST, deteriorate.  If you use your grill once a week or so then it's probably not necessary to buy spares. But if you use it like I do 3 to sometimes 5 days a week they burn out rather fast.  

 

I have had my BBQ grill for near 12 years now. Back in the states it was used once a week maybe and winter very seldom.  But here you can enjoy grilling virtually year round.  

 

@ Razz. Its advisable to attempt a guess on how much you might grill.  If very little then buying a grill for a lower price is a good choice.  If you plan on a lot, spend extra and get a good set up.  

 

Again best of luck whichever route you go.

Thanks for the above :wai:

 

I don't intend to use charcoal but gas - as I like being on nodding terms with the neighbours 😉
