  • We have a Fiberon Horizons deck - they make a board that resembles IPE and the boards come with either a 20 year of lifetime warranty. The deck was built 2 years ago and the boards still look like new. We really like it a lot! We did quite a bit of …
  • Another Challenger cabinet lover here....and my delivery was less than 3 weeks!! Every time I use the egg now I am completely impressed with how functional the cabinet is. The storage is great and very well designed. The extra 'flip up' side table w…
  • I've used all the suggestions above plus I have a BBQ GURU that I use for overnight cooks. In addition to the suggestions about piling lump, being sure vents are cleared, etc  I think one of the 'keys' to getting a steady fire going is starting it e…

  • I used to keep most of my stuff in a rubbermaid 'cabinet' and also in a large tote. With the table i recently purchased EVERYTHING (except extra lump) gets stored IN the table. It is a much more convenient set up overall. when I was using the cabine…
  • My PayPal refund was for the full amount. Mister C - if you used a credit card OR a debit card, call your company. They have a MUCH longer time frame for when a complaint can be lodged. Sorry you got burned by Brian - one of my primary reasons for a…
  • Brian's brother posted here almost a year ago and said he was Brian's webmaster.... interestingly, this same brother now opened up his OWN business with new website, etc. You can read more about it at this thread:http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/c…
  • BeauPNS- I dealt directly with the company in Indiana - must not be a distributor near me (NorthEast) because when I emailed the company they dealt directly with me.OB1 - glad you got your money back! In the long run, i am probably happier with the …
  • I use a MAPP torch (hotter than propane). If i'm doing an indirect cook, i just light a few coals in the center. If I am doing a direct cook, I light in a few different places. Some lump sparks a LOT more than others! Using gloves (and maybe protect…
  • Pull when done - FOIL, wrap in Towel, place in cooler - it will stay HOT until you are ready to pull.
  • NO assembly- it shipped via freight carrier in a large, well padded/packed box and was secured to a pallet. I negotiated delivery as part of my final cost. The delivery company called the day before delivery- because I wasn't going to be home, I wor…
  • I ordered directly from their website by sending an email and then corresponding with a Sales Rep who responded to my initial email. Because I had been 'burned' by Brian, I had a TON of questions about payment, shipment, etc. The guy I dealt with wa…
  • Here are a few more photos - (I am getting firebricks tomorrow to put under the egg)-->with the flip up shelf raised-->right side door - 2 shelves and slide out drawer-->Cabinet space below egg
  • that's a large egg - the tables run about $1400 shipped. they also make a longer one and a shorter one. It's a lot of $ to pay BUT my original wood table from BGE fell apart in 2 years and had zero storage. behind the right side door is a strong, sl…
  • terrible photo, but gives a good idea of what the challenger cabinet looks like. It has TONS of storage and is exceptionally well made. 24 inch fold up shelf on left side.
  • Glad you were able to get your money back! After getting my refund, i ordered a grill cart from Challenger Cabinet. It arrived in less than 2 weeks and I just put the egg in it this morning. It's a great cabinet with a TON of storage. 
  • A few comments for Kenneth: you were posting on this site in November 2011 (under a different name) and still (seemingly) supporting your brother's business so it is a bit curoious that you left the business on December 1st. If people 'group' you to…
  • Sorry everyone for the double post....re: the HANDLER option for the Egg, I don't have one but have seen it "in action" and it works really well!
  • In case you're still interested in other options, here's a table I built for an XL with 10" flat-free casters. Definitely not minimalist with the folding shelves and plate setter drawer, but just a thought! That table looks identical to one that wa…
  • I also have the Guru (it was a gift!). It is great for overnight cooks. The range works from the back deck to my upstairs bedroom in the front of the house. I still tend to wake up and check the remote, but it holds the temperature rock solid. Prior…
  • Prior to posting ANYTHING on this forum i made multiple efforts to engage Brian - calls, emails, etc. (call it "BBQ love" if you want). He did not respond to even one of my attempts after i let him know that I needed a clear idea about when I'd rece…
  • End of a saga: the money from my PayPal purchase was credited back to my banking account today!  Thanks to THIS forum, it became obvious that I was not going to be getting my table in any sort of timely manner. This prompted me to move ahead with pu…
  • I received notice of the claim result today - 10 days after escalating this to a 'claim' status.My understanding is this: if you escalate it to a "claim" then the seller (Brian) has 10 days to respond and prove to PayPal that he has sent/shipped you…
  • For those using the PayPal 'dispute'/'claim' process: i received notification from PayPal this morning that my claim was settled and the $ will be returned to my bank account in the next few days!!  Now i can get really serious about finding a new t…
  • FYI- some helpful tips about PayPal/credit cards, etc.When I 'purchased' my table from Brian, I did so as a "pay pal guest". I didn't want to go through the hassle of opening a paypal account. I used a Bank Debit/Visa card to make the purchase. Afte…
  • I am in the same boat as many of you. I ordered a table in early May after several emails back and forth with Brian. My reason for choosing him was his prompt reply to my initial inquiries and his telling me he had a '15 day turn-around' from order …
