Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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!
