No matter what part of the country you call home, the backyard BBQ is a summer tradition that everyone can relate to. So when you are looking for your next home, you are definitely going to want to make sure that it is equipped for those fun summer get togethers…and big enough to accommodate your grill, smoker, and any other outdoor cooking devices you might add to your collection over the years.
Let's take a quick tour around the country and check out four awesome homes listed with Carrington agents that have absolutely perfect backyard BBQ spots!
Brisket BBQ in Texas
This beautiful 2,402 square foot house was built in 2015 and sits about 45 minutes southwest of Houston. Everything about this house is first class, and the owners clearly spared no expense in building it. The hardwood floors, gourmet kitchen, master bathroom, and stunning wood work are all big selling points, but the primary focus today is the outdoor BBQ area.
The back of the house features a covered patio area that comes complete with gas and water hookups for your outdoor kitchen. Between those hookups and the overhead shelter, this home is equipped to burn post oak cooking Texas-style brisket and beef ribs no matter what the weather happens to do.
St. Louis Style Ribs in Missouri
The MLS listing describes this stunning four-bedroom house as a home that "was built to entertain." With a massive two-story great room and a large kitchen, there is no denying that you will have plenty of room for family and friends here, and three different levels of decks add even more room to entertain during the summer BBQ season.
Located just 30 minutes southwest of St. Louis, this home is the perfect destination for the amateur pitmaster who is obsessed with creating the perfect dry rub for their St. Louis-style spare ribs. It also isn't too far from Kansas City if your preference is for burnt ends!
Cooking with Peach Wood in Georgia
Thanks to the legendary Myron Mixon, everyone who is serious about their BBQ these days has to recognize that there is something special about cooking with Georgia Peach Wood. This 3,952 square foot home outside of Atlanta is a great spot right in the heart of Georgia to learn just how powerful that peach wood can be.
Whether you are focused on beef brisket or pork shoulder, slow cooking with Georgia Peach Wood will be a pleasure out on the huge deck behind this massive six-bedroom home. The inside of the house needs some updating, but the outside is a pitmaster's dream come true!
California Tri-Tip in the Bay Area
The state of California has recently emerged as a relatively new player in the BBQ world with their Santa Marina-style of cooking beef tri-tip over red oak wood. Whether you are slow cooking tri-tip or grilling seafood straight from the bay, this home offers one of the most impressive California-style patios you will find anywhere.
The inside of the house is every bit as nice as the outside, but nothing is cheap here in San Jose. People from other parts of the country might think that $1.8 million is a steep price to pay for a four-bedroom house, but the way real estate prices are going in the Bay Area, this could end up being a fantastic deal down the road
Outdoor cooking is becoming more and more popular throughout the country, and many homes are being built and remodeled to feature some really amazing outdoor kitchen and dining spots. If you are passionate about your BBQ, make sure that your next home has a great place to cook! You and your family won't regret it!
