Question about the Egg Carten


After a couple of years of lurking, I finally decided to get an account and join in the discussions.  This forum has been a big help to me in the past, and I should have joined earlier.

I have a large BGE that is about 2-1/2 years old and I just recently bought a small to go along with the large. I intend to get an Egg Carten for when I tailgate, go camping, etc.  When at home I plan on placing the small Egg, while still in the Carten, on a metal storage cabinet.  The cabinet I am looking at has a depth of 14" and was curious about the dimensions of the bottom of the Egg Carten designed for the small BGE.

So any members out there with an Egg Carten help me out?

    Mine is for the mini egg and the bottom is 10 1/2 X 10 1/2 inches.

    I don't know if it is the same base for the small size, but hopefully someone will chime in and we'll both learn something.

    I'm not sure what you mean about the depth at 14, and how that jibes with the dimensions of the bottom of the Carten.  Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are asking.

    I have one for my mini and I recommend the CARTen without reservations.

    By the way you will love the small. We have an RV and take it camping all the time.

  • Thanks for all the replies.  I did email Scott about a week ago, but no reply.  As the thread Austin Egghead linked mentions mentions that he is on a break from making them, which I hope is not permanent (or long) because the CARTen looks like the exact thing I need and tailgate season is upon us.

    @jaydub58: The cabinet I was looking at has the dimensions H x W x D of 34"x30"x14".  The the 14" represents how "deep" the cabinet is.  I wanted to make sure the top of the cabinet was large enough to keep the Egg CARTen from overhanging the edge while sitting on top.

    @ RAC:  Thanks for the  dimensions, it's exactly what i was looking for. Ever since we began grilling on a BGE cooking on anything else is a disappointment.  We got the small so we can travel with it.

    After the first cook I can tell it might take the top spot in day to day grilling.  It used a lot less lump and went up to temp in a fraction of the time my large does.
