Picture of my new setup. Nothing fancy, but it sure does cook a great steak!

    very nice and they sure do a good job with a piece of beef in there :) Only thing I would do is to put the three little feet under that egg that came with it. over time that paver does get hot enough to dry out and scorch the wood under it. You would never think it but there have been many pics on here from when people are redoing the tables and get a nice surprise when they move the egg and paver :blink:
  • Thanks! I had noticed that several pictures showed that the feet were used. Good thing that I did not "just throw them out" like the dealer told me I could.

    LOL no do not toss them! DEALERS!!! :evil: :( not a clues most of them. I have extras that come in handy for raising a pot off the plate setter or stone and just to give lift and air space .

    dealers.... I am shaking my head.. there are some good ones but more than not they have never even lit one...
  • Great job but, like Julie said, get the feeties under the paver.

    NavyEggHead? Retired or active? Location?

    I'm retired Navy in Massachusetts.

    Just curious.

    Welcome to the forum and thank you for serving. I never served but, in 1975 I signed up for the draft after coming of age. I never was called and I got into other things.

    I know there are other retired Navy submariners eggheads here. Maybe they will give you a shout. Tim

    By the way I have about ten or more feet laying around. I use them often. I have a table like yours and I use the extra feet to place the daisy wheel on after shutting the egg down. I would not want to place the hot daisy wheel on the table with out them. I also on occasion have other hot items I set on the extra feet on my nice table. There are many uses for the feet.

    There seems to be plenty of retired navy personal that are eggheads. Myself I retired in 1993 after 21 years. All surface fleet. I guess it has something to do with Navy chow and the search to get the taste out of your mouth.
  • Looks good. What did you use to treat the wood on the table?
  • That is really nice
  • Good looking setup, you will love the thing. I spent a few years on an FFG. Somebody has an SSN686 handle, hopefully he will see this. You sub guys eat better than the surface fleet, but the egg will out-do them all, don't worry.
  • Cabot Stains Australian Timber Oil in Jarrah Brown. Looks real good on the cedar wood of the table!

    Nice table and welcome aboard! BTW what is the small board on the end? Some sort of pull out "bread board?" And the purpose is...?

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    Ron, If his table is like mine I think that is a board for shipping and meant to be removed upon unpacking but not for certain. I bought the table and had to assemble it myself and I left it there as well. Tim

    Oh gosh! :unsure: I'd screw up my grandmas name if I could. I have Ron = RRP
    and Randy = AZRP

    on my desk pad but it don't help much. :blush:

    If you forgive me I'll dance at your wedding! :woohoo:

  • It appears that is exactly what I did. I guess the boards are supposed to be removed, but I didn't know that. No instructions included with the table and I thought maybe they were some sort of handles or something. I wonder if the stain would look too bad if I took them off at this point.

    As you know they are fixed with two screws and pretty rigid at that. I have left mine there to see if I may hook cooking utensils to them. Tim :)
