Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    Very nice job---how fast will it go and how many miles to the gallon ?

    LOL, it will go as fast or slow as you like.

    and consumption is rated by the # of beers per hr... :P

  • Looks REALLY great man! My step-dad just built mine for me and delivered it yesterday. How do I post a picture of it? I understand the board code part, but how do I get a link to the photo? It's on my desktop right now.

    Beautiful job on both tables!! Is that purpleheart on the XL?

    Don't forget the paver and the green feet under the large - would hate to see that nice work go up in smoke!

    Thanks Carolina Q!
    XL is white pine stained cherry with multi coats of high gloss Verithane.

    Not a worry on paver plus feet... it was just a test fit, it's 3 months away from ignition.

    Never would have guessed that was a cherry stain. But whatever it is, it looks cool!!

    Beautiful work on that table. The finish color looks great.
    I had a little trouble figuring out wheel placement on my table and looked closely at yours. It looks like the wheeled legs are flush with the ground. How's it wheel around like that? Maybe it's an illusion to me?

    Nope it's an illusion, there's lots of room, and it wheels perfectly.

    I used an 8" utility wheel with an internal bearing, mounted with a 1/2" threaded rod and large spacer nuts inside and lock nuts on the wheels. All nuts were set with Loctite Red.

    Here's a couple close-ups showing spacing.

    The opposite end I used HD anti skid furniture pads and measured to make sure the the result was a level table.

  • Thanks Gunner, great looking table. You have given me ideas for my tables. I have two to build when I return home from wintering in the south.

    Maybe I missed it in your post, but what wood did you use, its looks like pine? I'm considering cypress but will have to order it.

    Thanks for the cudos, my new table was done in BC Red Cedar.

    It's much lighter and more outdoor resistant than white pine, plus has some nice colour and grain.

    The XL BGE I used a combination of pine and eastern white cedar.
