I couldn't find this info anywhere on the web so I emailed "egg support" and they sent me these numbers.

What a beast the XL is! :woohoo: :

Base Weight = 125lb
Lid Weight = 56lb
Fire Box Weight = 37lb
Fire Ring Weight = 22lb
Fire Grate Weight = 15lb

The website says it's weight is 205 lbs. Not sure what combination of the above that includes, but loaded up, it's much heavier than that.

    Those are probably the "shipping weights" of the individual pieces, which would add up to more than a complete system.

    Still, 50 lbs is a big discrepancy...

    I know that when I brought mine home I had no help assembling it, and getting that base onto the nest by myself was a royal pain.

  • That is a serious achievement. I'm impressed!
  • Thanks for the information. I am about to pull the trigger on an XL and was wondering how big each piece was. I am probably just going to assemble it in the table I am going to build.

    Same here, probably going to score the XL in the next couple weeks and was trying to figure out how difficult (heavy) it was going to be to set up. I'm looking to skip the nest and mount it into some kind of brick (retaining wall type) structure. Researching ideas for that now...

    p.s. Just noticed those numbers don't include the plate setter either, which I assume is a must for any kind of "low & slow".
