  • Mayo works great! Just make sure it's not fat free mayo. It's the fat that prevents the meat from sticking
  • Thanks. I appreciate the help!
  • That was kinda my thought, but was trying to keep my area looking clean and just didn't know if I could get away putting the bag inside the table (where a five gal bucket won't fit) where it would be hidden. I am sure I can come up with something.…
  • Probably weak from not having enough carbs (energy) to catch his fall. Still a sad way to go.
  • Wow! What a setup. I envy you!
  • When you say don't me the table so deep do you mean from front to back or from shelf to top of table. I am in the middle of building mine and need to modify and work bench made out of 2 x 6 for the project.
  • Great craftsmanship. Nice looking table.
  • Gte1....congrats on your weight loss too!
  • Dual sc...glad you are making good choices. Most people that I know of on the Atkins make poor choices and still lose weight. That's what I meant when I said not sustainable for long term. I can tell by the grand Filet Mignon you presented that you …
  • I usually put my cheese IN the burger. I make 2 thinner patties using half of the meat for one burger in each patty. Then I put the cheese on one and top with the other patty. Then press them together. I too add all my seasonings before making patt…
  • The Cen-Tex Smoker said: AleBrewer said: Yeah....I think it looks like an ostrich? It wasn't just didn't knock my socks off. If I were to do one again, I'd look to marinade it in something. It's extremely lean, there was n…
  • Skiddymarker said: Nice looking steaks, is there ever a bad looking steak? - stay strong, as the pounds come off you will feel better. Although we don't diet, we do watch portion size. For years we always took out two chicken breasts, grilled t…
  • Just personal preference.. I like spicy food but not super spicy. Last night had enchiladas and made mine with a tad more heat. My 9 yr old son added hot sauce to his. Everyone else was fine with the mild enchilada sauce.  It's much like people …
  • I'd be willing to give it a go but I know I could not let anyone else in my family see it until its cut or no one would eat it. I would also have to refer to it as pork. Although we taste with our mouth, my family thinks with the brain and won't e…
  • My accessory would be beer! Is this an accessory or a necessity?
  • I would imagine so. I do agree with Nolaegghead in that it's how it designed. I'm no engineer, so I thought I would ask how an 8 foot table would fair. It's possible. The additional weight of your granite is like adding a second egg.   I was thin…
  • I missed my deal. I had to be there by 10:00 am which was impossible for me. Really stinks cause I was ready to buy two of these. I knew I am getting an XL but didn't know if my second size was going to be a medium or a large. I was contemplating …
  • Bgelover.....I saw that the other night going through this forum. I thought it was pretty ingenious.
  • Ok now I have another question.  The distance between the middle shelf and the top are different depending on what size egg you have. How do I build this without haviing to stack stuff under the xlarge to raise it up? I want the look to be clea…
  • I have a harbor freight less than a mile from the house..  I'll stop by on the way home and take a look.  I also get some magazines in which they advertise with coupons.   Thanks.
  • Table nest is 2" so add it to The 15 inches between shelf and top. The hole is 21" but many make it 22" to add an extra 1/2 inch around for airflow, safety, etc. Look at this link.…
  • henapple said: If you're doing 2 eggs and have no other work/prep space go long like Jerry Rice. It can't hurt. Use really....really heavy duty casters even if you have to scab the bottom. Through bolt everything you can....they are heavy. Be …
  • Nolaegghead. I am Putting casters on it. Down here in FL we get hurricanes and we need to be able to move things inside. What size casters should I be looking at for an 8 foot table? Michael
  • Thanks lilwooty!!! Your diagram helps a lot. I appreciate you putting it together for me. I kinda figured on the two egg thing myself for the same reason. If I have something on for 18 hours or so, how do I feed my family. Plus it may be nic…
  • lilwooty said: The number of legs needed depends on the design.  My table is not quite 7 feet long.  Built for a large and an XL.  Four legs made with 4 x 4 posts.  Double 2 x 6's sistered together front and back provide plenty of support for b…
  • nolaegghead said: I have a 7 foot table with a large.  Me and a buddy stood on it when we lowered the egg in - it's strong enough to hold the weight of 3 XLs.  If I were building it, I'd just put in 4 legs.  The strength needs to be in the bott…
  • MrCookingNurse said: I've always like the V or L design for double eggs. Something that is only in my dreams tho I do too and they ccan actually save some space but it doesnt fit into my configuration on my patio.  Thats why I need to go long.
