    Welcome aboard, nice upgrade! Hard to see the bottom of your Egg, is it on a table nest?

    Looks like there's enough space for the perfect combination.

    Nice upgrade and project.  Reason for the above question about the nest is that an air-gap below the BGE is a great insulator.  There have been threads here where a slab only table has structurally failed during a cook and led to a fire outside the confines of the BGE.  FWIW-
    BTW-welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.

    @Bigredegger......get an air gap under there do you dont light the table on fire.  Concrete conducts the heat, it doesn't insulated it from the table.
