    I like your cooking table too!
    Did you make it yourself or make mods to it?

    I'm always trollin' craigslist for these, $40 is the most I've paid and have gotten a few for free. Most of these are almost 40 years old. I modified a BGE Cypress table to fit the two, then added fold down tables on the ends. I'm looking for a 6' Stainless steel prep table to mount them in (someday)

    How much do you figure you spend in restoration?

    It was at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah WA, east of Seattle
    Check out the eggheadforum for upcoming Eggfests, its the best way to get a reduced price BGE.

    JB-Weld and Furnace cement. I used this repair link.

    It all depends on the condition of the Kamado, fireboxes take the most time, its like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, and sometimes a piece is missing and I have to build up the area with furnace cement. Each one has been a different fix. A few cans of spray paint, a few tubes of JB-Weld, I can do a few repairs with a quart of furnace cement, the $$$pendy parts are replacing the slide draft door if its rusted out, the Big Green Egg slide draft door are stainless steel @ $40 a pop. But mostly its time consuming.
