    Sorry for the late response, allsid! It is the Eclipse model. double posted the link of it above. It was $400 after shipping. Got it off amazon a couple years back. It's held up really really well and it only took a few hours to assemble.

    Has anyone had a flashback under a covered patio?  I'm looking at covering our patio, possibly with a tongue and groove plank ceiling underneath, and wondering about how a flashback might damage the ceiling and/or catch it on fire..

    I would worry more about the afterburner effect. But then, I don't have a roof over my egg.

    I have an attached covered patio that my egg sits under. Just steps from a sliding glass door, plenty of seating, and a fire pit.

    I need 10 steps from door to egg. Only downside is despite having the egg near the edge, I do get some smoke discoloring on the ceiling of my porch. It's finished out, and I have a ceiling fan that I don't normally run when the egg is billowing out smoke.

    I do have another fan I turn on low that keeps the smoke moving in a direction away from the egg and house.

    Our LBGE hails on our uncovered deck. We have a 1000+sqft screened in lanai but, my concern was smoke staining the white vinyl siding ceiling (lowest point is 8' & highest is 12'). That and searing or pizza cooks with the possible afterburner effect like Carolina said. I pondered the idea of fan blowing it out through the screen but, decided no biggie having it outside as it's right off the lanai and 10' away from my Mothers kitchen and 20' from our kitchen. It works well for me.

    Thanks for the feedback.. Didn't think about the afterburner effect.. I have had that happen before, but not often..

    This winter we added a screened-in porch over our existing deck. The overriding question is how to properly vent the porch so smoke doesn't fill it up.  It is perfect when there is a breeze from any direction, but you need a gas mask when it is still even with the ceiling fans. The solution was a cheap box fan that blows the smoke out horizontally. The KISS method worked. I was shopping for expensive vents and looking for elegant solutions, but simple is better and cheaper.
