Consider what you want to do with your new outdoor kitchen. Is it going to be an extension of your kitchen? Then it is convenient to choose one with many extra options. If you choose an outdoor kitchen because it is fast on temperature and you quickly grills simple dishes, you need few extra options. Also think carefully about the size of your barbecue. If you always eat with 4 people, you really do not need a copy with 4 burners.
