I have a large egg in a long BGE table on my back patio. As we were watching a movie inside, we heard a crash and looked outside to see the egg and table on it's side in the grass. Our dog was licking the placesetter and with a slight slope to the patio, it slid right off the patio. Only damage was a small ding to the lid. Anyone know of wheel locks for the bge table? Right now I have bricks blocking the wheels from moving, and have moved the table to a flatter part of the patio.

After putting everything back together, I rechristened the egg with a fantastic, home ground chuck burger with Benton's Tennessee bacon, which in my opinion, is the best bacon I have ever had. Look it up online, it is definitely worth it.

Any tips for locking the wheels would be greatly appreciated.

    Are they casters? If so, you may want to change them to some after-market lock-able ones.

    Loop a line around a back wheel to a something heavy or immovable. A porch railing post for instance or possibly a concrete landscaping block. Use quick release catch on the line. Just a thought for a quick and inexpensive fix.
    Otherwise replace the wheels with locking wheels, your hardware store will sell them. Check for wheel weight rating.
    Estimate weight of egg with plate setter and table and 16 pounds of pork shoulder then divided by 4. ;)
