  • Re: MiniMax owners: PSA pertaining to the carrier handle.

    Yeah when  I got my MM, I was not that thrilled with the carry handles either. That and the fact when I did carry it I always wanted a shelf or mate with it on the side. This what I came up with. The shelves fold down and lock into place and also become the carry handles. I now realize this pic is for the mini, I made an improved version for the MM. I use the MM mainly for camping and the shelves have been a great addition.

  • The Eggcraft Carrier 2.0 - Minimax edition

    Ever since I picked up the Max, I wanted to build a shelved carrier like I had for the camper mini. After some measuring and engineering hurdles, I finally completed it. I was able to lighten it up so that it is about the same weight as the mini one I built but just as strong. Cannot wait for the first camping trip to try it out.

  • Re: Mini Max

    Got mine at Ace a couple months ago for $499. The other two Aces's near me were $599. Bought it before they changed their mind.
  • Re: What's wrong with briquettes?

    I use both. Depends on what I cook. The reason is the wife doesn't always like the smokey taste on everything. I use the briquettes when I am cooking certain things for her. They work just fine, temps are different and there is a lot more ash. I stock both.
  • Wanted to share the carrier I built for my Mini Egg

    I use my mini mainly for camping and any place I need a portable grill. I wanted a weather proof carrier because while camping it stays outside all the time. I also wanted it to be light weight and to have shelves. I like having my accessories right there, the table it sits on is small, not alot of room. Also storage in the camper is a premium, so small is key. So I made it with some stuff around the shop, mainly 3/16" aluminum plate. Alot heavier than needed, but it was here and readily available. Add some stainless hardware and here it is. The shelves are 3 position. They lock into place with quick pins and can be adjusted in a few seconds. Position one is folded up for carry, position two the shelves are folded out 90* to allow more ventilation while cooking if need be,and can carried or moved as well. The third position is the shelves opened. Finally got to use the the other night and fired it up, It worked great and cannot wait to get it in the woods.
