Outdoor Kitchen With Green Egg

joe317 Posts: 28 October 2011 I was talking to my egg dealer (Barbecues Galore) yesterday about building the egg into a kitchen. He told me that I need to make sure at least 3 sides are open around the egg to get proper air flow for the egg. He said to put the egg on the end and leave the front, side, and back open for the air flow. What? Other than a table set-up, I’ve never seen it done this way in pictures from other people. This guy personally does not own an egg, but he says they build a lot of kitchens and this how they do it for an egg. In a way it makes sense. This gets it set up close to how the egg sits in a nest. But it really messes with the aesthetics of the kitchen I plan on building.What do you guys think?Does anyone have pictures of an outdoor kitchen built this way? 0

FSM-Meatball Posts: 215 August 2011 I have a nice char broil gasser. Snce I have had my egg (a medium) I have not turned on my gasser once. From my short time in the forum, that seems to be the same for everyone. I think by next summer I will sell the gasser and get another egg. My wife never used the gas grill and has no desire to learn the egg so it’s not a problem for me. Just make sure you have enough grill space for your needs. A lot of people pair a large egg with a medium or small. As for the side burner, that’s a good idea and one I plan to incorporate into my table soon. I have been using a chimney starter on the side burner of my gasser to start the charcoal for the egg. I will post a pic soon. You may want to try out an egg before you make the leap. Go to your local dealer or one of the eggfests if there is one nearby. 0

Advice For a New Outdoor Kitchen joe317 Posts: 28 August 2011 edited August 2011 in EggHead Forum I plan on building an outdoor kitchen this fall and have been working on several design options. My design was set on installing a Weber Summit S660 natural gas grill and a Weber natural gas dual side burner, but then I learned about ceramic grilling and am now thinking about changing my design.One option is to stick with my original plans, but add a large BGE. Seems like a great option, but then I wonder if I will use the gas grill. The S660 is $1,800 and a beautiful grill. But if ceramic cooking is as great as everyone says, I may never use the Weber and then have spent a lot of money for something that doesn’t get used. One reason I can think of for keeping the Weber is ease of use for my wife. She’s more likely to use the gas grill that’s easy to start than trying to start the lump charcoal in the egg.Another option is to scrap my original plans and instead buy 2 large eggs and the Weber side burner. This option is starting to appeal to me. because I can do different cooks on each BGE at the same time. Plus I still have the Weber natural gas side burner to cook beans, sauces, bacon, etc.I’m looking for advice from others out there with experience.Does anyone else have an outdoor kitchen with a BGE and a gas grill? Do you still use the gas grill or does it just sit unused? What do you use the gas grill for?I’m also wondering about the side burner. My current Weber gas grill doesn’t have a side burner and I don’t miss it. I think this is one of those things where I don’t know what I’m missing so once I have the side burner in the outdoor kitchen, I’ll realize I definitely need it and wonder how I got along without it for so long. Most outdoor kitchen pictures I see on the forum do not include a side burner so maybe this is another item I won’t really use.Thanks for the help. 0
