Table nest

Is anyone using the table nest with their tables ? I'm currently using 2 " pavers under my xl , but wondering if the table nest would be a better option ?


  • I have a table nest under my LBGE prior to the nest I was using ceramic feet and had no problem but a lot of people on the forum said that I needed to put a stone or nest under the Egg so I got the nest I like it t looks sharp

    The table nest allows for air flow below the egg and greatly reduces heat transfer to the table below. I recommend one.
  • I used to have a paving stone under mine but I was worried that the heat would transfer to the stone and char the table. I bought a table nest and it works great. It allows for plenty of airflow between the grill and table.

    I have never had a heat problem with the stones.
    I did however discover a hairline crack in the bottom of my base after
    my 1 and only clean burn.
    I'm wondering if moisture between the stones and the base , and  or lack of air flow under the base could be responsible for the crack ?
  • I have a table nest for my large.  I originally had the egg sitting directly on a concrete paver.  Then, I was in my local BGE dealer and saw the table nest.  I really like how it gives airflow between the egg and the paver.  For about $20, it's a good investment.
