As someone who was Born to Grill™, I’ve spent countless hours practicing the craft and searching for ways to improve my outdoor lifestyle. So when I first started planning my outdoor kitchen with BBQGuys’ 3D design team, I knew I wanted a fully functional space that allowed me to spend more time doing what I was born to do. Choosing to pair my grill with a power burner alongside refrigeration and storage was the easy part; picking the specific products was where things got a little difficult.

That’s when I returned to my football roots and began scouting the available options. After "studying the film", I was able to hone in on the components that aligned with my vision of the perfect outdoor kitchen. Below you’ll find the scouting reports on my selections, complete with quick breakdowns of what made them such great fits for my outdoor space — and why they could make sense for yours, too.
