Anyone load up their egg and take to a contest? 

I have a Large BGE and competing in two weeks.  I have my egg in a large table as well.

Looking for some ideas on how to transport the pride and joy to the big event..

Thanks for all the help and knowledge here on the site. What a great group of people!

    When I transport my large I loosen the top band and remove the lid leaving the band on the bottom with the white nylon spring lock installed.  I remove the guts from the bottom, load in my truck and put the firebox etc. back in.  I lay the lid flat on the truck bed, toss in the nest and away I go.  I have one large in a table and one in a nest.  If it were me I would pick up a nest and a folding table for comps.  Way easier than moving an egg table.
