I got my egg in January and got the plastic mates, thought they would be more durable than the wooden ones. It seems I always want to set something hot on them, but since they were plastic I was afraid they'd melt. So.....

I have a friend who has a friend who made me up these stainless steel mates. Just got them installed and they look great IMHO :) They go great with my other stainless tools from thirdeye (love that thirdhand, going to order another one actually)

    those look nice, but a word of caution - I see a small child's toy in the last picture so be sure he is taught to not touch those new shelves as they will get very hot in the direct sun. That's one of the drawbacks to S/S egg table tops.

    Is that a gasser I see in the background of pic 1? :whistle: The stainless is lookin good and I'm getting a third hand lifter. :woohoo:
    What part of Louisiana are you from?
  • glousteauglousteau Posts: 124
    Yep, gasser......its a great storage shed for my Eggcesories. Although I have used it twice since getting the egg, both times I had boston butts going and I needed to cook something for dinner

    I'm originally from LaPlace, intersection of I-10 and I-55. Spent 6 great years @ LSU though.

    That's what a bunch of eggers do with their gassers. I'll be getting another large to cook quick when I'm doing a low and slow. LSU is a great school.

    I do my thing in Lafayette. Work out of Opelousas Gen.

    Please tell us about the aluminum can. Homemade guru? And nice mates!

    They really look great.One question though.What is with the Miller Lite can at adjustable vent opening?Some new tip that I was not aware of?

    That's the raincoat for my stoker fan. Got tired of getting out aluminum foil every time it "might" rain, so I cut a can and permanently mounted it, see pics

    That's a good idea although I think a Guiness can would have been a bit classier :laugh:

    That is a great example of the old saying."There's more than one way to skin a cat." Well done.You might want to make a separate post on that topic.

    That my friend is a perfect example of Coon Ass Engineering!

    This is my make shift rain cap. A 8 inch Smokey Joe grate with 4 inch bolts and a 8 inch lid on top.Could even be a 10 inch one and would work.
