hey guys!! just got my egg last week. i am in Lafayette, Louisiana. i also own a natural gas grill with infrared side as well as a Cajungrill charcoal grill. but, i think the egg has become my favorite after only cooking on it 2 times.(steaks and baby back ribs) i look forward to learning and sharing with the Egghead Nation.

Anyways, I got the large egg with the short table. it seems like the table would be a perfect height without the wheels. anyone modify their table after they brought it home?

    Welcome aboard! Once you bought the table you don't have to worry about the Table Police hassling you about any modification you make - just don't modify your egg itself as that could mess up the warranty.

    Welcome aboard.
    I think you would find that most tables are at least a little modified if not custom made.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I live in Lafayette as well but in Tennessee.
    I think we pronounce it different. La fay et

    Some of us stain and put spar urethane on out tables.

    We were just talking about that here. Tim
  • Welcome, I too am a newbie, these people have all the answers and more. IMHO, I would put 4" caster on your table, that is if you're on a smooth surface. In Florida we have a Lafayette county, and it's pronounced La-fet by those who live there and around.

    Modify away. What ever height suits your need is the perfect height. Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey. Many great tastes await.

    If I may be so bold to suggest something.

    As long as you are on the subject of modifying your table may I suggest a paver stone under your egg on the table and also the green feet. If you ask around here you may see a lot of eggheads do that kind of safe egging. I brought it up just in case you take apart your table and you may consider implementing such an idea. Tim
  • Welcome to Eggdome! You can Eggspect a reduction on your Natural Gas Bills! In fact, your old gasser is goona feel mighty lonely.
  • Congratulations!
    A big welcome aboard from Canada. Your gas grill won't get used much now.

    Congrats ! Your gas grille will most likely become a storage unit for Egg stuff now ! Let's see some pics !
  • thanks for the suggestion. i bought the stain, sealer and stone this morning. now i just need to design the rebuild. looking forward to the project.

    I enjoyed staining and sealing mine and now all I have to do is wipe it off. Tim
