    We moved in the house in 2010. We had been wanting to tear out the original deck which was just a small builder grade and replace it with a larger outdoor cooking and living space. Finally got it done last summer and had it stained with a couple coats about a month ago. Still adding furniture, umbrellas and have 2 Coolaroo shade sails to install over the pergola if the rain would ever quit . Need to get some trailing flowers in the boxes up top as well. Wife is really enjoying decorating it.

      PaynTrain this is the product we used to stain and seal the deck https://www.readyseal.com/
      It worked extremely well and repels water like a beast. Brought out the color variations of the wood nicely too. The mats I found at Home Depot. I do like the idea Attjack brought up with the large pavers. Definitely more "hot coal resistant".

      You could cut out the decking under your grill and install pavers just in that spot too if you didn't want to redo the entire deck with pavers.

      Thanks Hulagn1971 I will check that out for sure. Attjack I thought about something like that, but it would drive me crazy with grease, and I would be constantly replacing. My Yoder weighs 1000 pounds, so that would suck. I am looking for a pressure washable solution.

    Not directly my outdoor kitchen.
    More my 'work-space' and 'mobile-office'.

    And before I get reactions; the beer was in my left hand and the camera in the right. And the speaker blasted Credence Clearwater Revival at 126-dB!

    More to follow...

    Not exactly an outdoor kitchen, but it's what I got! This is at the vacation house in Va.

    This has hot and cold running water. It just drains onto the ground.

    And here's the smoker. Right next to the outdoor shower. The shower isn't currently hooked up to water. You can also see my outdoor prep table. I move it around by the gasser when I'm grilling. It's very light and portable. When not in use I fold it up and stash it behind the shower leaning against the house:

      Dewesq55 I'm just a habitual "noticer". Noticing is my super power. I'd love to trade it for something cool like xray vision or being invisible, but it's what I got.

      CaptainMike - Honestly I am as well. When I used to run a law office, I used to get really angry and frustrated at associates who had been handling a file for a year and in 2 hours, I would notice about 3 or more important things that were either missing, or problems that the associates never had a clue about. I finally realized that I had a special ability for noticing stuff that many other smart people lacked.

    Got my new SnS and DnG in yesterday and had a chance to try it out with some chicken thighs tonight, planned on turning them into some jambalaya Sunday so figured even if I blew it they’d still be useable.

      That's a really nice piece of granite. But how do you keep food in the pan and feet on the floor with your house turned on it's side like that?

      Yeah user error, for some reason every time I post pictures from the phone it posts sideways. I have no idea on how to fix it, from computer fine, from iPhone sideways. And yes it would be hard to enjoy the granite as a wall covering.

      Did you add the smaller caster to the middle cooker? The Weber? This is what I want to do with the kettle grill, each leg on a caster or wheel.

      Nice setup as well!

      Thanks. But this gives me an idea at least. I didn’t think about casters across all three legs. I haven’t looked into adding a third wheel, but I like the ideas of casters.

    After 14 years, I was forced to rebuild my main deck and my grill deck. So here it is after about 6 weeks in the Florida heat and humidity. I threw in a pict of my first cook on the deck.

      That’s why I asked, could tell they were composite. I have plastic right now, and I’ve had them for 9 years, but kept them in the shed for 8. This past year I’ve left them out in a secondary sitting area and.........

      Do you mind sharing where you picked those up? Like you, I also don’t want wooden chairs.

      This was at a local European camping site with pool and activities for kids etc.

      With a glass of wine, I discussed bbq-ing with manager. And explained that I used the gas baby-Q mainly to avoid discussions or prohibitions on campings. And as a cleaner way to transport.
      We both agreed that wood flavour does make a difference. And he had no objections against bringing a wood/charcoal Q during next visits.

      I just forgot to tell him the exact size...

      I finally got around to roughing in the lower cabinets. I cleverly waited for a weekend where temperature was over 100. Next step will be applying the stucco. It's actually a vinyl material that doesn't require the installation of metal screen. But it looks like stucco. Then I can install the doors.

        Can't wait to see the finished product - when I read about the vinyl stucco I wondered if I could cover my house with it. Sounded great. Why did you decide against it?

        hoovarmin I had some people expressing the opinion that it wouldn't really go with the rest of the aesthetics of the kitchen. I also originally planned to use a cheaper and thinner plywood which I was going to face with cement board which the "stucco" can adhere to. But I purchased a better 3/4" plywood and used pocket holes so everything is nice and solid. I realized I wasn't far off from just filling, sanding, and painting. Plus I would not have to purchase and install the cement board.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker.
