edited 7:17AM in EggHead Forum name is hizzoner.....and I'm an Egg-a-holic.

I was recently talked into an Egg by some friends. I couldn't be happier so far.

I bought my egg and built a place for it. Here is what I did:

I started with a deck to place my new cooker:


then I built a cabinet to hold the Egg (Thanks nakedwhiz)


Then my oh-so-talented grandfather built my cabinets:

I placed the Egg:

Then we built my return that holds my burners:


  • That is awesome! I really like the covered area. Wish I had a place for that...

  • I tried pizza the first night...

    then cookies...

    this past weekend was the Texas dove season opener which is a national evenet (at least at my house). So I tackled a few Boston butts to be cooked for 30 folks..


    they were phenomenal!!

    (Non BGE realted...but I also cooked a mess of gratons on my new burner!!

    They didn't last long!

  • SWhat do you have covering the top to prevent water from getting in

    I'm not the forum police, but it looks like the table top (hole) is very close to the egg. You should have about a 3/4" gap all the way around it. Mine has about 1/2 inch and while doing a clean burn I noticed some "browning" :ohmy: of my table top and scared the crap out of me and shut'er down. I made the opening a little bigger.

    Great cooking area and way to go on getting an egg. Looks like you snuck in a couple gas burner cooktops in that last picture. ;)
  • I also miscalculated on the area for the hinges and had to notch them out
  • finished.....

  • So, Why isn't there a mess of dove on the Egg? :woohoo: Looks like good living and good times. :)

  • Very Nice! Very nice indeed!
  • I used a galvinized roof vent that I bought at home depot. Someone else posted it once and I copied it.

    My house here in San Diego would fit on that deck...

    OK, I exaggerate. But seriously, nice yard and GREAT deck.
