Small egg feet

Does the small egg come with feet?




  • Does the small egg come with feet?

    Yes. Just helped my dad put his new one together and he had 3 in there.

  • thanks bud, feet are sometimes hard to come by.  my egg will be new in box so if it comes with feet, they will be there

    nice to know

    I don't think new eggs come with feet anymore but its a recent change so if its not brand new it will. I would ask when you pick it up because most dealers have them losing around from people that bought nests and didn't need them. I have picked up several sets for free from my local dealer.

    Just went to my dealer to buy a raincap for my used small and they didn't have one, so he sold me the cap off the floor model. I asked If they had any feet and he said no. I opened the box w the raincap in it and 3 feet were inside. He said "enjoy", I said Thanks!!!

    I think the feet are hit or miss. Have been to 3 dealers and no feet to be found for love or money. Did not find any in the rain cap box of the small I just got today either. 

    I bought the clay pot feet from Lowes (3 to a set not 2 as pictured) and they work very well for my large egg and as spacers beneath the stone when making pizza.

    Mine came with the feet. But also put the hinge on upside-down as I learned tonight, so I would ask when you go pick it up on Friday! Got a first cook picked out yet?

    I did 2 8 pound shoulders on their side in my small before. Do it all in your small.
  • New Eggs don't come with ceramic feet anymore.  If you find old stock you may have feet inside still.

  • I bought mine last summer at the Indy EggFest.  It was pre-assembled (of course) and no feet were included.

    New gaskets appeared 5 months ago.  Feet disappeared maybe 9 months ago.

    Good luck!

    3 butts on the large is no problem...but if you want to fire up the small to break it in...:)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
