Much of this design came from Todd Adair’s project which was very nicely done. I used Cypress, finished with Helmsman Spar varnish. Assembled with screws and plugged. The granite was a leftover piece I picked up at the local granite shop-thank you Keith Tucker. This is for my son-in-law, Zach and will be used in Paducah, KY where the temps and humidity levels can wreak havoc on outdoor projects. He has a custom cover coming for it.
Zach and I did this together; had a good time doing it and we’re quite pleased.

Very Cool! I built one recently for 2 Large BGE’s and it was massive. Looks like the XL there?

I’ve got to agree with BenTheViking – clear and concise.

That is beautiful It looks very well constructed and something that you might be able to sell to local appliance stores as an add on for the BGE. The granit in lay was a nice touch.

So what is it about the temps and humidity levels in KY that wreak havoc on outdoor projects?

A similar BBQ was on display at a local store and they could sell a lot more with the setup you have created .
That is a wonderful project and a good time spent with Zach I bet .
Great job and a plan would be a great post!

Thanks for looking. RickL and Kiefer, I think the plan dimensions actually came from the BGE site. This BGE is an Extra Large. The plan included the hole diameter and the distance for the support shelf beneath the top, allowing for the added concrete or stone support the BGE sits directly on. Those seem to be the most important measurements to respect. We completed the build before Z actually purchased the Egg, trusting the dimensions to be correct and they were dead on. JJ, the support slab is a 16” square concrete paver
1 7/8” thick, painted black. BHW-I’ve seen your “double egg” table here on LJs and its super. Harold, the temps this summer have topped 100F, with some extreme humidity. Winter brings a good bit of rain, moisture and temps will get into the teens for a few weeks. Zach’s deck isn’t covered, but with weather like that, the cover will definitely be needed. Thanks again all.
