Went to the dark side, broke down and bought a large BGE about 2 months ago. I've BBQ'd butts, chickens, steaks, salmon, burgers, etc. on it and getting used to controlling it, etc.
Fits a perfect niche that a gas grill and a BUFORD can't fill.

Anyway, I spent about a month on and off building a cart for it. Wanted to be able to remove the egg if needed, have access to a 55000 BTU gasser for discada, pots, skillets, etc.

It has outlets wired to a electric line recoil reel, table top and burner are pinned for easy removal, etc.

A few pics;

Thanks all!

So far, everything seems to be very functional, cutting board prep area, expanded metal l underneath for the hot stuff gasser stuff, lights, learning the BGE, etc.

Seared some fillets on the gasser a few nights ago, holy chit! One minute to 700 degrees, I swear! From start to end of sear, no more than 4 minutes. That thing heats up and fast!

Got to do some discada cooking soon, thinking about some fajitas...

Dude!! Right down to the bottle opener even. Now if you just had a mini fridge and portable sink you could practically live in that.

Most excellent! You done good Buford :thumbs up:

Fajita meat needs to be grilled over mesquite flame. Now the veggies....well, I think they are better that way too! Heat your cast iron over the big burner though.

I bet that thing would be super for blackened redfish!

yup, cook the skirt / flank over the BGE and toss in the discada with the veggies, sounds like a plan. :thumbs up:

Think hanger or top blade. Leave the skirt or flank for the uneducated.:msn-wink:

Well, been using the BGE cart, BGE and LP burner over the Summer.

Seems everything has been working great and is totally functional.

Been using the heck out of the LP burner to sear my steaks in the cast iron skillet.

Where are you located? You might add your location to your profile. If you do, you may find you have neighbors that share your interest in cooking.
