select what tile you will use and get a tile cutter. mix up the tile glue. trowel on the glue and apply tile to countertops and short backsplash area between the upper and lower counters in the front. we applied the edge tiles first, then put in the tiles around the perimeter on the top. then we laid the centrer tiles diagonally. once that is all laid install the sink and side burner. create trim around it from steel if desired. test fit you barbecue.
