Started on my BGE cart today. No wood.
Steel frame, stainless top, gas burner discada on one end, BGE on the other.
Aluminum tread plate enclosure, light, outlets, etc.

Sounds like your building whats beginning to run around in my head.

Don't have the BGE yet but I have my discada and burner both from Disc-It.

Looking forward to learning from your progress.

Blessings

There are some beautiful tables with great attention to detail on this thread. I really like that granite top.


I have 14 3/4" spacing and my hinge almost touches the table top when fully opened. 15 wouldn't give me enough spacing for my large egg.


If I were doing any mods on mine, the first thing I would do is- in front of the intake, I would extend the fire proof surface out to the edge of the shelf. This would make ash removal and cleaning easier and keep any potentially hot coals off the urethane.


I wouldn't be so cheap next time. Instead of using all left over wood and materials and building to what I had, i would buy everything exactly as I wanted. I see my cheapness every time I look at my table!


Looking forward to seeing the all metal tables.

Well, to glom on to this thread, I plan on building a table for my BGE also. Although I haven't decided on a counter top material, the frame will be built like this Brethren did...

My biggest cart realization was that you add and remove a lot of very HOT components during some grillings, and you need a spot to place them that won't be affected by the heat.

I started building a table from Cedar that I had, and it looks great. I covered with layers of epoxy and polyurethane. Still looks great. These are plastics that will melt / burn. Not a great idea. Burn marks don't look great

So next time I'd go stainless, stone or maybe a poured concrete countertop as I've seen some do.

I used cedar but left it untreated. It will turn gray and over time will end up with a lot of ash marks. I'll call that patina. I used the cutout parts of the hole to make a board. I use that a lot to place the hot stuff on.
