When having a custom outdoor kitchen built you have to be sure that the person you have building it knows how to build structures that are safe for gas. So often we are called out to peoples homes to repair grills or tear down and rebuilt Grill Islands because they were damaged in a gas explosion. (Frightening, but true)
The following structure was damaged in a propane explosion for 2 reasons we were able to see.
1. No ventilation on this Island
2. Clorine tablets were stored in the unit
Be sure to have a licensed professional install all of your gas equipment. This could have been easily avoided.
