<p />Well we had a bit of wet weather on the eve of the Lazy L Minifest - but no worries! Our eggs are under cover, and tomorrow's forecast is favorable. I've started a pork shoulder that will provide sustinence until the ABT's & wings & tenderloins & ...
start rolling off the grills tomorrow. Meanwhile, here's a couple of shots of tonight's storm hangover (and thanks to WMK for the cool Lazy L Minifest banner!)[p]
[p]First, a bit of hail[p]

And a pork shoulder doesn't care about rain![p][p]

    I noticed the Egg in the table looks to be sitting on just the original BGE "feet" as opposed to a flat stone or any other heat shielding material. Is the table wood holding up to the heat OK? I'm finishing a table this weekend and the dealer said all I needed to protect the wood would be the Egg feet. Do you konw if this is really true or one of those urban myths?

    WDAN,[p]It's true that some insulation is needed underneath the egg. I started out with the egg sitting on a 1" thick flagstone. After only 1 or 2 cooks the wood underneath was charred. I switched to the feet, and have not had a problem since. [p]I think the air gap is a better insulator than a solid piece, but of course it depends upon the insulating qualities of the solid brick. The bottom of the egg would have to get pretty darned hot to radiate enough heat to char wood through an air gap of the size that the feet make.[p]Chuck
