It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Hi,
I have a Large BGE bought last year and I want to upgrade it's current nest to a table. I see lots of info on plans and have some ideas on building a good table (maybe tile top).
I am having the worst time finding the lumber to purchase.
No one has cypres that I can find. I found some that carry oak or cedar, but we're looking at $250+ just for the wood!!
Anyone have any ideas of what I'm doing wrong here? Anyplace else I can try?

    Joe,

    Try 84 Lumber in Douglassville, PA

    610 326 8880

    Ask for Luke, he's the manager....and thinks he may be able to get cypress. I dont think you'll find it to be much cheaper than the other options you mentioned though.

    Joe, look for hardwood lumber dealers. I know that cypress (one of the more popular egg table woods) is not a hardwood, but you will often find it at hardwood dealers. This one in Marcus Hook PA, for example...

    In my area (central CT), there are two hardwood dealers who carry cypress. Price here is $3.40/ board foot for 4/4 (1" thick before finishing) and $4.40 for 8/4. Teak, otoh, is $30 for 4/4!!! A board foot = 1"x12"x12".

    Good luck!
