1st Mini Grill and stand question

We did our first cook on the mini tonight. It was steaks. A small filet for the boy and a ribeye for me and Mary.[p]These were cooked abou how we do steaks on the small or large, 2 minutes per side at 600* and then 2-3 minutes with every thing closed.[p]They were wonderful. The mini does not take much lump at all.[p]I am a bit disappointed in my stand though. The mini wobbles in it, especially when I open it. I noticed the raised bottom on the mini tonight. What do you all with minis do for a stand? Do ou use the BGE one or do you just set it on a tbale since the bottom is raised off the ground anyway?[p]Also, is there a mini cover?[p]Thanks.[p]Fritz

    My mini sits on a 2" concrete stepping ston and I use a trash bag for a cover.

    Fritz, My mini egg sits on the feet that came with the large one. Do not put it directly on a wooden surface - it will burn right into it! JCA
