Carten Update

Well folks I have worked out a deal with my past supplier who will be shipping the Cartens to me for for assembly. This will mean a little higher price for the Cartens but I think I can make them available again for those who are still in the market If interested please check out the blog spot at http://eggcarten.blogspot.com/

I also want to make clear that the Carten is not affiliated with Big Green Egg in any way.

    Have a friend that needs one. Also when traveling and no table to sit on I pull the Mini out and flip it over and sit the Mini on the upturned bottom.

    I'm in as well. 

    Perhaps you can change the name to some like Kamado Carten(K-cart)? That rolls off the tongue nicely.

    Good to hear from my Salado friends...especially upside down Mickey!! HaHa
    For those who are interested please send an email with your name and address to slewis87@msn.com and if you are looking for a mini or small. I will keep a list in priority order and will ship in the order I received your email. I don't think there will be any problems but don't want to start receiving money for the Cartens until I receive the shipment from my vendor. Looking forward to helping my fellow Egg heads be mobile!
    For those asking about some of those other "cookers" sorry don't have any current plans to design for them.

    Email sent. Any way you can provide the measurements of the carten? I don't have a BGE mini, instead I have the vision kub. Just want to make sure it fits.

    What exactly is too big? The shelves come off. If it doesn't fit in the mini, maybe the small? Need measurements please!

    this was about three weeks ago. Anybody have any updates? @slewis

    @r8rs4lf‌ the vision diameter is wider it hit the side bars when I tried to put it in. I am sure the small will work though.

    I've been a otr truck driver for a while and considered a mini to take with me. My problem is the cool down time. Is it possible to (after dumping the coals of course) put it in the Carsten and load into my truck while still warm/hot? Otherwise I'm considering a simple smokey joe

    I think so. At fests they shut down larges in 1 hour by dumping charcoal out. Then they are loaded into vehicles. Mini should be no issue. I am able to pick it up after 1 hour with coals in it to put back on the shelf in the garage.
