Anyone else wish the grilling surface was higher? Looking at the rt700 specs - it is 2 inches higher. For me, something like 3-4 inches would be perfect (I'm 6'2").
Yes, first world problems.
Anyone do a creative DIY mod for this?

I too find it kinda low at 6'1", it seems like a dwarf next to my Weber Summit. I have the comp cart and was going to use some of the stock cart parts to extend the height by several inches as well as provide some extra storage under the cookbox. I beleive the comp cart already adds some height over the stock cart.

@jdubz Great data points, I've not seen that before.
TBH, since I use the 590 mostly for longer smokes, the lower height isn't too bad since I spend very little time standing in front of it. However, I did find some square tubing in my scrap bin so will probably raise it 4" or so. My Weber grilling surface sits at around 36" so I'll set the 590 height closer to that.

I built a bench to put in on and took the legs off the 590. The bench has a door to open where I keep my pellet bucket and other supplies. If you do that, be sure to leave space under the 590 for airflow. I raised it two bricks off the bottom of the bench and put a piece of sheet metal with heat resistant paint on the top of the bench. It's working well.
