  1. Completely understand! maybe its visible from under the table?

    So I've got a shot of how the screws look mounted in the hole (cutouts). The whole thing works well but I goofed. The screws will seriously scratch the finish on the cooker. I got lazy and tired and didn't do what I intended to do which was place green egg felt on the heads of the screws to prevent scratching. I'll do it sooner or later.

  2. I, as well, am interested in how you have the grills installed in the top. I am planning a table project and am trying to figure the best way to hold my grill in the top. I understand a picture might be difficult but could explain the screw palcement and support further, it would be greatly appreciated. or ideas from anyone.

    I posted a pic. Hope that helps.

  4. Fellow grillarians, Wings direct or indirect????

    Here's how I do it. In fact, I did wings last night..

    I like mine naked, lightly seasoned before going on the grill. I always keep the wing intact sans flipper. Indirect heat, using upper and lower grill grates. Two to three medium to small chunks of oak, wrapped in foil. And then roasted, lid closed of course for 45 minutes to an hour at 350 to 400 degrees. Make sure the skin feels tight to the touch and not rubbery before pulling them off . Ideally you'll have the perfect combination of firm skin and magnificent juiciness.

    I use oak for fast cooking and it is fantastic on wings.

    Next time I'll post a pic.

  5. TWINS... or is it.. HIS and HERS !! great job, I like that !!

    How do you have them attached, seem to be sitting a little high to have used the side shelf brackets ?

    Thanks..I've got six stainless steel screws per hole placed around the inside of the cut outs.. This braces and supports the grills and gives about half an inch separation between the grill and the wood..

  6. Great job on that table! Luv all the details.

    Pressure treated pine..Latex, rosewood stain. Spar varnish (gloss). Wood filler to cover the hardware.

    Miter saw. Jigsaw. Orbital sander. Drill.

    Approximate cost, including all supplies and various miscellaneous items: $325.00

    this is a shot of the vent that I sealed with regular household aluminum foil, no name brand. I have been

    testing the seal and I think it seems to increase the ability to control the temperature. In doing this,

    I did not have to cut anything except the vent hole. the aluminum foil was just the right length and I did maybe 10 folds, but I lost track counting. the fold itself was maybe 2.5". just slightly longer than the vent and then you can tuck the rest of it to finish the seal. very simple and clean and it looks like it is working. props to chilibean for this cool idea.

    Thanks man.. :)

    That's EXACTLY how I did mine..

    The other day, I got my grill too high burning off gunk..Smoke poured out of every crack, crevice and hole on the entire grill EXCEPT where it was sealed with foil..
