Stone for Egg

I am having trouble finding thick pieces of granite, slate, or other stone to put beneath my egg.  Would putting a thick piece of wood and the stone on top work? Or would that be a fire hazard if the stone gets hot with the wood beneath?  Thanks.


  • Why so thick?  I use 3/4" terrazzo tiles that are 24"x24", add the green feet (4 are good if you can get them).

  • Go to Home Depot or Lowes and pick up a paver for a few bucks.

    I second this one - this doesn't need to be pretty - and likely it will get its share of ash, water and the elements on it.  I have an 12x12' cement paver and it does the job just fine.
  • ...or go to any local hardware store and get fire bricks.  They are only 1.25 inches thick and work great.
