Hinges hitting counter top
We are days away from moving into our new house and last night I assembled my LBGE in it's custom cut granite hole in the outdoor kitchen. Boy was I disappointed when I realized the hinges hit the countertop before the lid was fully opened. Maybe I missed a thread or important note either here or in my instructions but I had no idea to allow for those. I figure I have two options, either raise the BGE up an inch or cut a notch out of the granite in the back allowing the hinges to recess below countertop level. I don't really want to raise the egg because I like the cooking surface where it is.
I really wish I had taken some pictures last night but I wanted to get some input anyway. I'll post some later this afternoon. Other than that little snafu it turned out exactly like I wanted. I even bought some sausage to cook on it last night and had to put them back in the refrigerator!
Can't wait to grill!
