A pretty face goes a long way. A very long way. Still, looks aren't everything, even when you're a Big Green Egg. It may be unbelievably handsome, but without the Egg Mates Side Shelf Large (2x), the green egg isn't getting anywhere. How impractical is it, when you can't leave your marinade brush or ingredients anywhere? Very impractical, indeed, which is why these wooden side shelves are a must for your Big Green Egg Large. You attach the side tables to the barbecue with metal assembly pieces. A useful assembly kit is, of course, included. Clean the side tables with hot water and diswashing liquid.
