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!

Got a custom built Egg Table, but no stone or brick to set it on. Any suggestions??? 


  • For the sake of clarity, you're talking about the egg correct?

  • A simple concrete paver works just fine.

    I bought a 12"x12"x1.5" fom Lowe's for just a few bucks. I also "sunk" it into the table a bit so that only about 3/4" is showing. Been that way for 7 years and thousands of cooks and never a problem.image

  • I am looking at slate, granite and possible marble. How thick should these be?

    I'm using eight full fire bricks which makes about an eighteen inch square. The full ones are 2 1/2 inches thick. Picked them up at a local brick dealer. May be overkill, but better safe than sorry.

  • Yeah, I used then 1.25" ones you can find at Menards or similar hardware store back when I had a wood table.  I arranged them to cover the bottom surface of the egg and had no issue with the wood underneath.
