Cutting board on Egg table

I have the cedar egg table and I want to get a large cutting board to put on it for cutting on and protect the wood from hot pots. Plactic may not stand the temp of hot pots and wood boards may not stand the weather. Any suggestions?

    I found a granite company that had some scraps and the right side of my table was measured and for the price of a few slabs of ribs,as long as I wasn't particular about color, he cut me from SCRAP a piece that I now use with a regular cutting board on it.

    I like the Bamboo cutting boards from Costco. They seem to hold up well in weather.
  • If you have a nice knife, you can ruin your blade by using stone or glass as a cutting board.

    If you want it more for something to put hot pans on, I'd go for stone or tile.

    I took a 12x12x 3/8 stone tile, added rubber (peel n stick) feet and basically made a trivet. Works fine and I just leave it on the table but now that I think of it, I don't need it that often.

    Here's an alternative idea for you...

    When I added a small next to my large that obviously was the end of my work place.

    So I purchased a 30 x 24 laminated maple cutting board and a set of hinges so it would collapse flat when not in use plus fit under the BGE cover. The hinges are rated to 130 pounds and lock in place. It has been rained on and snowed on over the last 5 years and is still rock solid. OTOH since it is hanging when not in use the rain/snow doesn't lay on it either.

    Wonder if I could use something like that?


    Well, when you reverse sear, ya gotta put that plate setter somewhere fast!

    Here's another source and these are rated to 750 pounds so they are better than mine.

    That's just ridiculous. No Egger's going to put 750 pounds of meat on his grill. Seven hundred's the absolute max :P
  • DG - uneeda hot plate. Save your corks and build a fram for your trivet. :)
