INSANE Outdoor Kitchen Build — Building An EPIC Deck Pt. 5

In the latest addition to my epic deck-building video series, I create an INSANE outdoor kitchen. For this awesome outdoor kitchen, I build a full BBQ STATION with a stone veneer and a griddle. This might be the final video. Or it might not. I’ve been having some hiccups with my door build. But you’re about to witness the build of an incredible grilling station for all my BBQ needs.
