    Ok back to Cartens and something you should think about. If I had both Minis, both would be in Cartens. Started to get one a year ago in Salado but got around to it this year (March 16th) and my Mini has not and will not be out of it.

    Only one problem I can see. That is some heat transfew from the bottom of Egg to the bottom of Carten. For the most part mine sits on a SS table with a towell under it to protect the SS table from scratches from moving the Carten around. Found the heat and went online for two things: first somthing to catch the heat and second to cushion setting it down. Found this materal that stated 500 protection level (not sure what it protected aggenst) so ordered a 1/4 inch for about $28. The first pic was after a 20 min 400 cook.  So orderd a 1/2 peace for about $48 to put under it. When/if it burns into the second peace I will pull all of the orange stuff.But (IMO) something is needed to cut the heat (not that it is all that hot) I think cutting would be good.

    I wonder if glueing the mat under the Carten would be better, also you wouldn't have to use the towel under it to prevent scratches ?  Maybe the aluminum would dissipate most of the heat first? Don't know, just thinking out loud...

    @Bullibe had a phone conversation with Scott on this very thing. His thoughts the total 3/4 inch or just the 1/2" alone would be to high for underneath. . He could agree on 1/8 or 1/16 for the bottom. But I have $70 in this and thinking enough. I will probably order the 1/16 next week (very weak person). That to be glued to the bottom. Now what glue to use so if not working I can get off.

    @mickey I put my carten directly on a plastic table and cook for hours with no issue. I went 7 hours yesterday between 300-400 and not even a mark on the table. I did burgers the other night with the car ten directly on the table at 500 for probably an hour and a half and the top of the table gets warm but not close to hot.

    @Mrcookingnurse I just cut the hole and got lucky. Start smaller on the handle to handle width you can always cut it bigger. If its too big the egg handle will hit the table.

    I think I would use 3M Super 77 spray adhesive, you can get a nice even film on both surfaces before sticking together, then trim the "wild" away on the sides of mat, after it's stuck. Then to remove I would pull it off and roll up as much as possible then use 3m Citrus adhesive cleaner for the residue.

    Custom fab is way to expensive. Just informed SWMBO that this is the father day present
