OK, I succumbed to the panic, building in Eggdom. Couple of questions:
Is there a newer "and" older version of the mini, insofar as the hinge apparatus is concerned? Looks like my dealer's floor model hinges were a little different, and had an extra place to push them back for closure. Also, on the patio (concrete), I've got an old glass table that isn't pretty anymore that we throw stuff on, that would be a good height for my new Mini. If I use the feet from my Large (as J Appledog suggested!) under the mini, will it heat up the glass on the table when I'm power-cooking some ribeyes?? Besides the hinge design variation, if one seems that the hinges are pretty stiff, of course, to keep the dome from slamming down---but it seems that it's easy to get the mini to wobble a bit. The dealer wants $49 for either the iron table stand or the taller floor stand..same price. OK
--maybe more than a couple of questions. Thanks guys and gals..again
p.s. to J Appledog: Any suggestions on how I "give" the Mini to my wife (it's still in the back of the Jeep)?? Fill it with flowers, expensive vodka, tickets to Hawaii??? Help!!

    Big Murth, It would depend on the glass.
    I have used a blowtorch to soften glaze around window panes, and never broke one yet. But always a first time. I think, if the stand is sturdy enuff a thin sheet of marble would work. But to get really safe, make a wood stand like perhaps WiseOne has available. He was going to post a pic pretty soon. He has good design ideas. I like sturdy and solid to hold my cookers.
    Keep some air space in any case. Or a base of sand or pea rock.
    Too bad they don't make these things in the shape of valentines. Then the whole meaning changes..heeeyaaa.
    Good luck

  • Big Murth, Like I posted earlier, I bought my wife a new lawn and garden tractor for Valentines Day. Guess that won't work? Maybe a few twice baked tators on it, I got a killer recipe.[p]CWM

    Big Murth, can you put it in big wicker basket filled with fake grass and tell her, "Happy Easter Dear" ?
    Might work?
    maybe not. ;)
