    RBK ,
    Not sure WHAT took you so long to find us here, but looks like you've been busy in the meantime!! Nice job on the great home for that a medium?? Hard to judge the scale![p]Welcome to the group here. You will learn more than you ever imagined if you hang out for a spell. We'd be also curious what you have learned in the absence of the forum. You probably have quite a few of your own techniques you have developed without being steered by the forum. Sorta like Jimi Hendrix was self-taught, and came up with his own thing!! Well kinda.[p]So, what you got cookin this weekend at your gorgeous cook center??[p]Happy Freeedom

  • RBK ,
    Beautiful job on the table. In the photo however, it looks like there is no air gap between the tile and grout and the egg. I have always thought that when I built on that I would leave about an inch. I know that would be necessary if the wood frame was touching it but with the quarry tile I guess not. [p]I guess I was thinking too, that would be needed for expansion of the egg. If your tile and grout is tight up against the egg, has this not been a problem? Have you had the egg up to some high temps with this setup, like for searing a steak? Thanks for your help.

  • Carlina Wizard, There is actually a small gap between the egg and the table. I used sanded silicone based caulk around the egg. I have had it up to 700deg with no problems at all. Most of the high heat seems to stay in the lid not the base. I am not real familar with the thermal dynamics of ceramic but I don't think that it expands enough to worry about. Good luck

  • RBK,
    Yeah, I thought about it after I sent you the question, if expansion is that big of a problem those metal rings that they use to hold the egg in the egg stand might be a problem also. But an engineer may say that the metal ring expands easier than the ceramic...who knows? Anywho, I still love your table and I'll have me one like it soon. Thanks again for the inspiration!!

    I live in Salt Lake City, UT.

  • Carolina Wizard,
    The total cost for materials was about $200.00. I used 1x4x6' rough cut cedar fence boards from Home Depot and planed them smooth. The frame is made out of 2x4 studs. 3/4" plywood under wonderboard provide the base for the ceramic tile counter top. I made a cover out of heavy canvas which I keep on it when not in use.
    If you have any more questions let me know.

  • Nature Boy,
    I am better at making tables than making up recipes. Yes, it is a medium. Now that I'm here on the forum my variety of Egg meals will increase. Unfortunately I have to work all weekend so the Egg will be cold.
    Drink and smoke one for me,
