Challenger cart

Just picked up my new challenger cart. Can anyone tell me fine way or another if a stone is required under the egg?

    I agree but not sure if the heat would cause problems down the road.

    Most have out a nest for separation.

    I called the manufacturer when I bought mine to ask this very question and the answer was 'no'.

    I wouldn't store any combustibles directly below the egg.

    Pics please. If using a nest the stone would not be necessary. Just a table nest on this style table should be adequate.

    @stlblu‌ I don't have the challenger table. But, even on a SS table I'd recommend a nest. Mines a lil modified to give me height I needed. But, you get the idea. image

    I was told to put a nest in mine as well. I think it also gets the egg the right height to give a little gap by the table top.

    What is the right height? Some people are taller others shorter. I think the egg sits up above the table top a few inches already on the Challenger.

    I have the challenger and I have a table nest. This allows for maximum air flow under the egg.  Please use a nest as bricks/pavers will scratch the paint and will look horrible, not to mention you wont have the air under the egg. .

    This is the response I received from Challenger when I asked.

    "Our Challenger Designs carts are designed to withstand the heat and weight of the EGG itself.  You can place the EGG directly on the black surface of the egg.  This will usually cause small scratches to the painted surface of the panel, but this is no way damages the integrity of the cart. If you are concerned about the scratches, we recommend an EGG nest or a stone paver. "

    Thanks for the help. The rep from challenger told me I don't need anything under the egg. It might become discolored over time but that's all. I did find the ceramic feet that came with the egg so I will use those for a small gap. Now I will try to post the pictureimage
