Hi all,

I would like some advice - I want to add a single burner to this table:

What would you experts suggest?

I have a little camping stove that I normally use but it's a pain to remember to set it up everytime.

I want something set in there I can use for sauces, beans, a deep frying.

Nothing specific, but Bayou Classic has a number of items that might fit the bill. I have on of their free-standing single-burner cookers that has been trouble-free for 10+ years. They do offer replacement parts for their products if you need them.

I am about to take off the side burner from a defunct old Walmart gasser to add to the end of my table... mounting brackets , controls and gas connection all right there....and it saves on table top space.

You don't mention price but a portable Solaire would look really cool

Why not add a turkey fryer base to the end VS messing up your table top with something?

I was looking to buy a single burner for my COS remodel but couldn't find any replacement side burners to buy. So I looked around for gas grills for sale that had a side burner and found a gas bbq that had one on it. Got it for $25. Took off the side burner, the shelf from the other end and the grates. put the carcass out by the street and overnight it was gone, POOF! I mounted the side burner on my COS and it works great!

Craigslist is your friend.

I have a wood table for my BGE almost exactly like yours and would love to add a burner to it but adding an open flame close to an all wood table makes me nervous. You aren't worried about that?

I'm really hoping that in my next house I can build a stone food area where I can put my egg and install a burner.

I am not really worried as it's a controlled flame and I would never leave it unattended. If I was using the burner I would be there with it at all times.

Thats a good idea. Thanks.

I will check for old BBQ and reuse something like that.

If you end up doing it post up some pics. I would like to see how it ends up.

Don't know if you want them all in one but I did this, frying pans aren't to low and boilers not to high to work with.

That's not too bad. I wonder if I could do something like that but actually attach it to the table. That way I could hide the propane tank inside the table and run the gas line out the side.

Wouldn't be hard on your table, your bottom shelf is lower than mind so you could build the table as high/low as you need for the cooker. The only problem I see is the the valve is part of the tank regulator so you need easy access. You could always cut a hole in the bottom shelf so your tank would slid/drop in and sit on the ground/deck below.

I've accumulated a few of them over the years... Can't resist garage sales. My favorite is this one (and apparently many others - check out reviews). Because they have welded in a "steel can" around the burner flame, less heat is lost out the side and forced up under the pot or fry pan, speeding up the boil time in a very large pot. Depending on the heat generated within the wood table setting, I may set it within a steel box... or something?
