Hinge clearance?

Hello ...could somebody tell me how much the hinge drops downward when you open the dome on a large BGE?
I have four inches from gasket to my tabletop .

Thanks again!

    Boy, that might be close....My MBGE is just 4" from the felt line to the bottom of the hinge when the lid is up.

    I believe he is still waiting for his egg to be delivered. You have a nice day now.

    I'm sorry, how crass of me. 
    If measuring for a table, go from the bottom of the egg to the bottom of the opened hinge. Give yourself about 5mm clearance. Add  to that the paver and air gap you desire. This will be the dimension from  the lower shelf to the table top.

    I had 15 inches from the top of the table to the bottom of the egg and my hinge hit the table a little. I added a ceramic tile under the table nest and it has plenty of clearance.

    !8"is a little overkill my old cock. Think you would be ok with a layer of salt cod son.
