Bring the best parts of summer camping right to your own backyard with an outdoor fireplace. This can be integrated so it is part of the pergola design. Unlike a campfire where inevitably you will get hit with smoke from the fire, an outdoor fireplace has a chimney.
It allows for everyone to pull up a chair around the fire. It also can help to extend the use time of your pergola as the fireplace is perfect for those cool evenings.

Your grilling station can include a regular grill and smoker. You might even build in a ceramic Big Green Egg grill.
Why only do the grilling outside when you can create the whole meal in your outdoor living space? Add to your outdoor grill station other features.

- Counter prep space
