  • Have you tried to cook pizza in it yet? That will be the real test at how well the enclosure will put up with the heat. Good luck and looks great.

    Have not seen any night pics, must be a surveillance sytem like ccpoulin said.

  • Very impressed, nice job. Where did you get the stainless accessories and what is your top made of.

  • Nice job.

    Just curious though it appears to be built on a raised patio. How much reinforcement of the patio did it take to hold that kind of extra weight ? Can you post a picture of underneath the patio? or is it built on top of a house structure like a sundeck or something ?

    All that needs is some draft beer being dispensed, and a great sound system.  Perfect.

    Okay, maybe a couple of stripper poles as well.
    I was thinking if that had a built in sound system, it would be the bomb!  Very nice setup.
    Notice the two electrical outlets? here is my wish list for the sound part...http://www.dynaudio.com/int/home_loudspeaker_systems/xeo/xeo.php

    Yes I have tried a couple of pizzas and they turned out good enough that i will be doing more! Digital thermometer readings have shown that no surface with in two inches is getting over 108 deg., this was a concern because I used a wood frame for the enclosure but there is plenty of "open" space underneath and the 1 1/2" gap between the counter and egg really helps.

    the deck was designed and built by me with this project in mind, it is 9 ft off the ground and I increase the size of the joists and the joist spacing was reduced to 12" instead of the common 16". Joists were also doubled under all critical edges and the main beam for the deck runs roughly centered beneath the enclosure. I can try to get a pic underneath, but just imagine you could park a Mac truck on the deck.

    They are LEDs but my attempts have shown I suck at night pics of the lights, will keep trying....:(

    BBQGuys.Com, stock pieces and they custom made the two underneath the egg to match, good people to work with. Counter top and other caps are poured in place colored concrete, polished to very glossy surface.

  • Thank you for the response, enjoy.

  • Very nice outdoor cooking area.

  • Here is a "night" shot taken before it was completed so the "surveillance" system lights are not in yet.

    Dude, you missed the boat on the custom Egg handle but that's ok, looks like you got everything else RIGHT!

    Damn son I can only handle so much at once! LOL I have had problems with the hinge set up and BGE has sent me a warranty replacement. After I get that installed I will be doing the handle. Also have not yet mounted an opener....
