There's a rural tradition. People had summer kitchens. They were located away from the main house, in a shed or under a partial shelter. That was one way to help keep the main house cool in the days before air conditioning. When I was a kid, even though my grandparents lived in town, they had a summer kitchen in a big shed. They also had a big table in the shed that sat a lot of people. It seems there were always extra mouths to feed.
I was tempted to buy a propane grill, but decided to repurpose my old kitchen stove instead. It's an old wood/propane stove. For now, I'm going to just hook up the propane burners and oven.
The deck under the stoves has been reinforced. Soon I'll stretch a fabric roof over the stove to keep the weather off. This is going to be a lot of fun and I'm not buying anything new.
By the way, there's no air conditioning in my house either, so this will help it stay cool.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
