We recently came across a great article from Kitchen and Bath Business reporting on “outdoor cooking trends for 2012” that emerged from the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association HPBExpo event. According to the article:
“One of the trends that will be seen during 2012 and beyond is one-stop shopping. New outdoor cooking units are focusing on offering more with stainless-steel refrigerators, bottle openers, beverage centers, brick ovens and other cooking elements built right in, providing a convenient outside cooking experience.”
Other noteworthy trends include advancements in outdoor cooking safety features, grills that are not only conveniently portable but also more high tech, and handy accessories. If you’re interested in what’s new in the outdoor cooking world, we suggest you head over to Kitchen and Bath Business online and read the whole piece.
