    Very nice! Is there a nest or some spacer between the bottom of the egg and the granite(?) slab underneath? If not, it is something to think about doing. They can get pretty hot under there.

    That is simply beautiful. Really outstanding. Hate to be Johnny buzzkill, but have you considered a table nest?

    Very nice and welcome!  An air gap under your egg is a good idea.

    Beautiful!!!  Get a table nest, green feet, or some floor tiles to create a space between the base & granite so you don't burn that table up.  :)

    Beautiful piece of furniture right there! Bravo! Do as @stlcharcoal advises and make sure you get some sort of air gap under the egg. There are many pictures of burnt tables or worse due to not having an air gap. This goes with or without a stone. Either way you need an air gap.  Hate to see that table get ruined. One of the best I've ever seen.

    NICE! That sink is a really cool addition! BTW does it simply drain into your yard or is there a bucket hidden behind those doors?

  • Thank you all for the high praise.  I do have a granite slab that the egg sits on.  I have cooked on it several times with no heat issues that I am aware off.  I have done a pork but for 11 hours.   Have not cooked pizza yet 550 temps.  Do you think i need something more than granite?

    Yes, you need an air gap.

  • Very nice table and setup!  Welcome to the forum.  As others have said, get you one of these table nests.  $50 on Amazon to protect that investment.

    They may have increased, but the table nest was $30 at my dealer.

  • I have added a nest under the EGG.  I did a little test to see how hot it would get between the granite and the wood.  The egg was only at 500 deg and under the granite was already ~125.  wood starts to smolder at 150.  Thanks for the advise

    MSRP $32.95.

    Smokeware has a cool cast iron one on their website.  Pricey, but I like how it looks.
