Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My table is finally home and egged! (lots of pics)

    @Cazzy   How's it holding up to the weather?  Do you cover or keep under a roof?
    It doubes as a dresser in his master bedroom when not in use so it is in great shape

  • Heat transfer's from high temp cooks... Not sure that that is as big a problem as some people think. I know I've seen some that have caught their table on fire and I should change my setup soon. When the delivery company that delivered and setup my Big Green Egg just put 4 pieces of 3/4" pine blocks under the Eggs. I didn't know your were supposed to have a fire brick underneath the Egg and cooked on. I've the thing up to the MAX heat more than once and have used it 3 or 4 times a week since I got it right after this last Christmas. maybe I've just been lucky but no problem here.

    Cazzy, any word on price for the chute? Hate to ask you to do this, but can you take a picture of how it is attached or is there a tab that goes under the egg and the weight holds it up? Think you said something about a bolt?

    I used 4 pieces of fire brick under mine - meaning 4 squares that made up the size of one regular one.  Mistake!!  The heat went between the cracks of the 4 pieces and burned my table in the shape of a cross.  So if that is what you are doing you might want to check underneath.  I didn't think there was a problem until I took the egg out to stain the table.  My table wasn't catching fire but it was burning up!

    I've been over a 1000 degrees and the wood underneath is still the same color. The space below offers airflow and the iron itself displaces the heat too from what the blacksmith explained.

    I've just spent the last 20 minutes drooling over your table.

    Now, how do I convince my wife that I need a 2nd egg???

    Great looking set-up.  Now my wife is all over me about replacing the GBE nest with something more attractive!

    That is awesome. I would love to have the legs/stand on my Large. Great design all around. Also, what kind of rib rack is that?

    I honestly have no idea what brand it is...bought it too long ago. It wasn't the BGE brand. I will see if there is engraving on the stainless steel somewhere.
