 Unlock Your Outdoor Kitchen’s Potential with Refrigeration 


Refrigeration is one of the most important components of any outdoor kitchen. Whether you’re hosting a weekend barbecue or an intimate dinner party, having easy access to chilled beverages and ingredients is crucial. 



Having a refrigerator in an outdoor kitchen takes the experience to the next level by allowing you to store food items, beverages, and condiments conveniently within reach 


 Although you can opt for a standard refrigerator, we recommend choosing something smaller that is built-in to your grill station; such as a beverage center or wine cooler to truly maximize space.  


Further, one of the most significant benefits of having refrigeration within your outdoor kitchen is that it saves you time running back and forth from inside the house to get ingredients or drinks. You can store everything you need in one place, so you don’t have to interrupt cooking or entertaining to restock supplies. Easy peasy!  


Perlick Refrigeration: Rooted in Longevity and Quality 


The Perlick Corporation began from humble beginnings as R. Perlick Brass Works in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1917 and it is still family-owned and headquartered in Milwaukee, five generations later.
