    I am jealous of your setups. I have mine on my raised wooden deck and whileu it is close to the kitchen I am not at ease with it. I also have a problem with too many eggcessories. I have no where to store them. I am guessing a 4ft long cabinet with a stone counter would cost ~$4-5,000 to have built. His is my main proble with the Egg. It's a great cooker but too many pieces to make it modular for different cooks and I have way too much stuffs yin around all over the place. Allot of it is prabably getting ruined by being thrown around and left out in the elements. Looks like the HOOD around my egg.

    You could build something really nice for a whole lot less than 5k
    How? The stone alone for the countwr will be a few thousand at least. Add a carpenter/mason to build a cabinet/storage and cover it in somehing waterproof it has to be at least that much. If not show me how. And make it last in he Northeast.

    Remember I am in NY - home of pay 5 times as much for everything.
    I'd love to have a $65k truck but drive a $43k model. It can be done. No building skills? Where are you located?
    My point exactly an that's why here is egg junk all over the place. Not allot of building skills but some. I am in ny just north of the city.

    I would need something about 4ft x 2ft I am guessing to hold all the stuff. I don't want it to hold the egg, just cabinets and a surface to prepare food on and to rest a hot grate or stone on when i take it of the grill. Since its outdoors uncovered wood will not last. It also has to be light since its on a second floor deck. So full stone will not work.

    My idea would be for it to be stone covered wih some sort of stone top (granite or slate maybe). This is to make it waterproof amd not rot. Thinking more granite type as it will clean easy unlike the porous slate. Cabinet doors I have seen are ~$500 each and I would a bunch of them. Then add the stone, structure, and the top and that's adds up.

    I looked at the premade carts (challenger/outdoor kitchen design) and they will not hold all the stuff and they are ~$2,500 each.

    Here's my set-up. Just finished it this weekend. I still need to get some totes for "drawers" under the lower shelf. It was originally set up for a Large - Large but it will work great for my M-L combo.

    Yeah Rob, it's all in there.  Yes, I am pretty creative with my stacking and sometimes I do have to remove a few extra things to get what I'm after, but it's really no big deal.  Keep in mind that the platesetters and extra grids are stored in the holder on the left side of the table.  The left drawer also has a sliding insert that gives it a second level.  I'll get some pictures the next time I cook.  The only thing I keep in the house are my electronics and cast iron.  I also store my charcoal and wood in the garage.

    I really like that table a lot. Can you give some more details on where you got plans for it, what type of wood, etc?

    @yzzi  Thanks! I didn't build the table (I should have been more clear about the "just got it finished" part. I got the table from my brother-in-law. He owns a landscape company and he was doing a job for a guy that was throwing this L-L table away! They are doing a full outdoor kitchen and I bet it's going to be super cool. I really appreciate his generosity and I hope to thank him in person one day. It needed a bit of TLC but I spent some time refinishing it and replacing some of the warped and damaged wood. I just recently got my M egg on craigslist and haven't decided if I would rather have two L eggs so I left the top the way it was. 

    It's made of cedar and has thin 1/2" granite inlays for both eggs and a center surface on the top. If you want to send me your email via the message system, I would be happy to send you more pics and some measurements. 

    This is what it looked like when I got it. You can't see any of the wood I replaced in this photo.
