Cement block with Stainless Table??

I'm biting the bullet and buying the corner unit from Southern Specialties for a Lg and Med egg, also a mini replica of the large table to fit my mini. Ouch. YOu may have seen these at some fests. But my question to you guys, I know to use the green feet, but should I still use the cement square under the BGEs? When I got my first "BGE" brand table they never told me to use the fire brick, but I learned it on this forum so I'll trust you folks to help this time too. That BGE table did not weather well the first season. Early this year I had it painted and tiled and a matching one built for two eggs and they look like crap so instead of throwing good money after bad, I'll shoot the wad and have something that will last. Hell, I have no heirs.

    Remember I asked nice to be left your cast iron. :laugh:
  • I don't think you need the little green feet either

    Careful laying something on the SS table that may leave a rust mark on your table

    Sounds nice

    I sure don't want to scratch it up with the cement block, but I don't want the heat to warp or damage the steel.

    Patty, You might be able to find a high heat mat for the top on the table. That way you can set hot stuuf on it without issues. Check restaurant supply places. If you can't find anything I can check around here.

    Hi Patty, just so you know, I am available for adoption :laugh: :laugh:
    I think I would use the green feet just to put a little air space between the egg and the steel to avoid possible warping from the heat. I do not think you need a paver at all.
    Sounds like you are going to have a great setup :) :)
    see you soon :)

    October JJ Fire fest? Or before in Pgh or Niagara? Not waiting until March Melbourne, are we?

    Like a trivet? I do have a restaurant supply store very close by, thank you.

    Longer than a trivet. Good luck.

    Patty,
    I have my mini on a glass table. Here is my set up top down: Mini is on BGE feet, feet on concrete block (12x12) and what you cant see is the concrete block on silicon pot holder.

    I bought them at Sur La Table here is the link: (on pg 2)

    BTW no star rating as a pot holder
