I picked up my free small BGE (AMX points) the other day and built this table. Thought I would make it 'special'. So take a look.

Nice drop down side tables.

But here is what is special! It's portable!!!

It separates so you can move it to a vehicle!

Now this is how to tailgate!!

    Very nice but I would still use the feet (maybe you are when cooking) between the paver and egg.

    Best Egg idea I've seen in a long time, Phil. Very cool.

    Great tailgate table! I want to do something like that with my new small. Very nice indeed.

  • I like it a lot. A few well spent manhours went into that table. Nice yard BTW. Did you make the bird houses as well?

    Beautiful...nuff said.

    I am on the prowl for a small, and this did not help me out 1 bit. Absolutely amazing.

    Is there anything you would do different after having some time with the finished product? I would doubt it, but thought I would ask. :cheer:

    Very very nice.

    I just made a portable crate for my small, but yours looks a lot more functional.

    Actually, yes. I used treated 2x4's and the entire stand could be made out of 1x4's (for a small) to save a LOT of weight.

    That would be extremely heavy.

  • I like your table setup. Good work my friend. I see that you have a little piece of vinyl flooring under that paver... As long as you use the little feet for your egg you will be fine. The feet keeps the bottom of the egg from touching the stone... Thus allowing heat to not transfer to the paver stone. But if you don't use the feet and just sit her on top of the paver, I think eventually, the paver will melt that vinyl. Just my opinion and obervation. BUT other than that.. It looks damn good... Could you build one for my large and ship it to GA? :laugh:
