So I don't have a table/outdoor kitchen (yet), but I've been wondering what your take is on this (for those with permanently mounted eggs)
I adjust the direction of my egg (bottom vent) depending on the prevailing breeze all the time. It seems I never cook with my egg in the same direction (unless I've got my stoker hooked up and it's adding air as necessary). I always seem to use or not use the wind depending on what I'm cooking. I couldn't imagine having a stationary egg and not being able to leverage the wind say to crank up the flame for a steak or pizza.
I've seen some posts of little handheld fans, but I think these are usually used for getting the fire going versus holding it on the bottom vent for the entire cook?
Maybe I could rig up a stoker/guru fan with a simple on/off switch for just these times when I want a hot fire.
I'm in a somewhat temporary housing situation at the moment, but long term I do plan to build a table/outdoor kitchen. I'm thinking I'll leave the egg in the nest, but remove the mates and make a slot for it so I can continue to leverage the wind to my advantage.
Just curious as to your thoughts on this topic.
