  • Re: OT-Anyone have a foam mattress?

    After looking and pricing forever, we finally bought a memory foam mattress from Costco online for about a quarter of the others we were considering.  That was over a year ago and I'm so glad we did.  They have a no questions asked return policy which made it easy, but I spent about $600 when I was planning on spending around $3K.

    I have little doubt that it's as good or close to the quality of the others we were looking at that were 4x the price.  We have loved it so far.

  • Re: Large BGE Table, 15" or 17" height

    I would go with 16" depth from top of shelf to tabletop.  This will give you 1/2" to 3/4" hinge clearance on top with the table nest.

  • Re: Beginnings of my table build

    I don't, but can take some tomorrow.  And you're right.  17" should give you a perfect fit and you will be fine, but I just like to give it a bit extra just to be safe.  At a minimum, I'd go 16.5" just to ensure you won't get any "rub" later on, for lack of a better word.  Hardly a noticeable difference really.

    Not that it matters.  Seattle will represent the NFC at the Super Bowl this year... and win it... again.
    Certainly the favorite.....however I would root for GB next week if I were you.  Hard.....

  • Re: Can't decide on a finish for my new table.

    I've seen them and am more than comfortable cooking in a table on a paver only.  I recently refinished mine so I took the Egg out and you could not tell anything on the paver or wood after two and a half years of cooking on the Egg an average of four days a week at temps getting upwards of 800* at times.  The dealer and BGE corporate both told me that pavers were fine since they no longer sold the feet when I bought mine. 

    It won't happen, but even if it did, mine sits on a concrete pool deck 20 feet away from a brick house anyway.
