Using the feet in a table voids warranty...

    Do NOT use feet under an XL... Use a paver stone, and you can put feet under the stone to keep it off the wood. You will need at least four feet, better to use eight. I use 18 inch square paver stones for my XL's

    So my design for the table is slightly different than the ones I see in this thread, namely there is a hole cut out for the piece of slate, meaning it gets air below it to cool it. I am not sure this makes a difference, but my physics degree is telling me that it will allow it to cool much better than something sitting directly on wood.

    My plan is to take some of the ceramic insulation I have, make some balls and put them under the egg. Then I'll have a break between the egg and the slate for air to cool the egg, plus I have the bottom of the slate open to air for the slate to cool.

    I'll take it slow on my first few cooks and see how hot the slate is getting...

    I'm pretty sure that used eggs don't have a warranty. I could be wrong.

    You are correct. You must be the original purchaser and have the means to convince your dealer of that fact, i.e. either you have receipt or he has records.

  • My XL egg did not come with feet, I just figured someone left them out of the packaging. I asked the dealer for some a month or two later and they gave me three form another egg. My egg is sitting on the feet, 3 of them, and a 3 inch slab of concrete going on 3 years now with no issues. I have had the temp to 1100 degrees, and have cooked low and slow for 15 to 20 hours at a time on numerous occasions. No issues..........well I did replace the gasket right after the high temp experiment. And the plate setter had a hairline crack in it, maybe heat related also. My dealer gave me another one, I now use it in place of a pizza stone. To use feet or not to use feet?

    I think you can use the feet on a table but you still need a paver. Use of feet only on a table will cause a fire.

    Ideally a table with supports holding fire bricks and feet between the bricks and cooker will allow the most air circulation.

    I grill therefore I am.....not hungy.

    Settergrens is great. Feel guilty as they are my hardware store of choice, but didn't get my egg from them. Kitchen window was giving away free grilling classes and gift cards when you purchased a grill, so got it from them. I don't use the feet on my large, but I like the idea of using them to keep things off of the grate! Thanks!!

    Seems that 2 pavers is the way to go, surely with two of them your safe and they are cheap. 
    The above idea would be great if you had not yet built your table. If I build a new table, may plan it for bricks.

    Well then, what the heck are the feet for? I have mine mortared into a cement board substrate, next to vitreous tile. No problems for several years.
