I built this Smoker Cart for a customer about 6 months ago. It is built from Western Red Cedar. The cutting area in the top is Granite. It was finished with Cabot’s Marine Grade Varnish.

Great design with lots of storage! I would definitely make good use of this!

That’s a great looking egg table! Will the egg sit directly on the wood? Mine does and everyone tells me that is not kosher, but I don’t seem to have a problem with it.

The big green egg website says the outside gets hot. Their table shows an egg supported on its own feet and the sides are not touching. Looking at cbell’s picture I believe his design provides for that.

I think the customer was going to put a concrete paver underneath it. I did a lot of reading about it and a rep with Green Egg suggested that. They did mention not to use ceramic tile because it can build up heat and explode. The concrete dissipates the heat.

I have an XL egg and a small egg so this is one that is going on my favorites list as one of my “to do” projects before summer gets too far along. Very nice!!!

A really awesome job on this. An egg table is on my to do list as well… I put my egg on a concrete paver as well.

If they did, they better bring some help. I’m not sure what the cart weighs but it is heavy. I would guess 175 to 200 lb. If I remember right the large Green Egg weighs 162 lb. I had to build the cart pretty heavy just to handle the egg. :)
