We do a lot of heavy/smokey cooking, so I have plans to make a small kitchen area outside my yard. Question is this: If I buy a gas grill with a sideburner, is the sideburner sufficient for everyday cooking? Is it comparable to a indoor cooktop? We have a natural gas line to plug it into. Does it cost a lot more to operate then electricity?
Like anything else, you get what you pay for. If you're really going to build a kitchen, I wouldn't get grill/cart. I'd go with built-in with a dedicated side burner. Naturally, they'll cost what you thought you were going to spend on the grill alone. You want brass and lots of BTU.
It takes less time to do a thing right than it does to explain why you did it wrong.
