Re-purposing a cracked Egg

TjcoleyTjcoley Posts: 3,422
Just finished putting the new Egg together, and now it's time to do something with Humpty.  I left the base in the old nest (afraid it would fall apart if I took it out).  I found a 30 round patio table at Ollie's Outlet (Good Stuff Cheap), with a mosaic tile shop, very close in color to the patio.  Ity's heavy enough that it doesn't need attached  It's not going anywhere. I now have lots of prep space, and it looks a lot nicer than the old gasser sitting next to the Egg. A BGE Prep Table.

    Looks great. What are you going to do with your old dome?

    I wanted to plant peri-peri peppers in my cracked XL.  The dealer said I had to agree to send pics of the broken to pieces base in order to get a replacement.

    My original plan was to flip it upside down in the base, add a fire grate and grid, and us it as a grill to sear.  It made the table top too high, and I figured with the crack in bot pieces it wouldn't last long.  Not sure now what to do.

    @Tjcoley you'll think of something. If you don't I'll be happy to take it off your hands. I want to make a wood fired pizza oven and use the BGE dome. I have plans for it in my head.

    Whenever I hear cracked egg stories, it makes me sad. I bought my egg on craigslist, and thought they were indestructible. Kind of like sears giving you a lifetime warranty on a 3/4 inch wrench. Yeah it could break, but it most likely won't if not abused. Hopefully I win a new egg at north coast egg feet this year.

    I have a large base just sitting on my deck. I can't settle on what to do with it ,but I can't bring myself to throw it away. It sure does seem like a lot of eggs are cracking lately.

    Make the wife happy and turn it into a big planter

    @hapster yes, the base kind of looks like a planter anyway.

    Works really well for a planter... And the lower vent makes for an interesting drainage port...

    Not the greatest foliage...

    Yes, when you can look at the picture it does have a very interesting look to it!

    Well, now that's a great idea!  I have a base that's shot, so I think I'll turn it into a deck side herb planter.  Thanks.  Wouldn't have thought of that.  Something to do tomorrow.
