    Custom Kettle Table Question

    For those that have built a custom table where their kettle sits in a hole, what do you do with your lid?

    I’m in the early stages of planning one out and I’m trying to figure out what to do with my lid
    when it’s not sitting on top of my kettle.

    Thanks for any advice.

    You could build a shelf on the bottom of the table to put the lid when you are not using it. Adding shelves is pretty easy when you are building.

    Or you could put an iron hook on the side of the table to hang the lid from.

      I haven't built one, but I'm wondering if you could attach a lid bail to the end of the tabletop. The 26" has the lid bail attached of course, and there's an aftermarket lid bail for the 22.

        That looks like it needs to be attached to a curved surface to function correctly. I could be mistaken.

      I put a hinge on mine from unknown bbq so it swings up toward the open end of the table.

        I don’t think I’m gonna have an open end. I’m pretty sure I’ll be enclosing the whole thing.

        A hinge should still work I would think. It should pivot above the table. I would still put it on the side so you aren't reaching across the hot kettle for the lid handle.

      Just a bit more about what I am planning on building

      Dimensions
      9’ long x 2.5’ deep x 3’ high

      Kettle on left about 6” from edge
      28” Blackstone Griddle 10” from right edge

      4’ prep section between Kettle and Griddle

      Two drawers below the prep section with a Coleman 24-Can Party Stacker in each drawer. One for hot, one for cold.

      Stainless 24” x 17” single door below kettle

      Stainless 42” x 21” double door below griddle

      Stainless Steel Top

      I’m still debating what I’m going to enclose the whole structure with.

      I’m framing the whole thing with pressure treated 2x4s
