Build table or buy nest......
My trusty rusty old charcoal grill is due for major overhaul or replacement. In 3 more years (current age of grill)...it will be time to do so again.
I grill out a good deal on average 3 nights a week year round. It's something I really enjoy. Nothing better than getting home from the golf course and firing up coals and popping the top on a cold beer.
I'll primarily be cooking for my wife, 10 year old son and myself. On occasion (once per month ave)we'll entertain and I'll be grilling for a total of 6-7 folks.
My grilling has evolved over the past couple of years to include many indirect slow & low and smokes.
The egg sounds like a perfect solution for us.
I visited my local egg dealer this Saturday and looked around. The large size seems to be big enough after talking to him extensively.
He was fairly vague on add-on items....just referenced it being a "sky's the limit" issue.
We'll be moving in less than two years also. The new location will find us much closer to our families so we'll entertain much more often. I wonder if I'll wind up adding a second at some time down the road.
I don't know how to feel about the nests. I like the tables I saw in the store, but I can't see spending $400 on any of them. I have only the minimal of tools so I don't know about making my own table. I think I have a circular saw around here somewhere...but I'm not sure.
How did you guys cut the circle on the top?
Has anyone tried painting one vs. staining?
Finally, is covering an egg a must????
What are the "must have" options?
