fudge... just saw this thread so i wont bump mine that i started apaprently right after this.. :)
here is what i said:
I've held off buying any lighting yet and wondering what you all use.. I have seen quite a few that have a small light.. I was looking something a little larger maybe? Alot of my cooks seem to finish in the dark and then there is the whole daylight savings and fall/winter/spring months where it is definitely me cooking in the dark.
i could run an extrension cord to the table so it doesnt have to be battery operated. was thinking of making some sort of telescoping type arm that tucks away when not in use or something with a floodlight attached. i dont want it to look like frankenstein either hanging off my table...
anyone got a good one to share?
Large and Small BGE, and a baby black Kub.
And all the toys to make me look like a Gizmo Chef.
I pondered on this subject several weeks back, I finally decided on building a pergola / arbor over my egg table and mounted a flood light on the upper frame facing back towards the grill with two bulbs. This set up has worked out great!

Two XL BGEs - So Happy!!!!
Decorative LEDs provide plenty of light for me.
@nolaegghead - took your advice and ordered the supplies from Amazon and waiting on them to arrive. It sounds ideal. I have some decent flashlights (Costco) and I like the idea of not having a cord. My egg is exposed, so I don't want to have to worry about running an extension cord out to it every time I cook in the dark and bringing it back in when I'm done.I also have the headlights and they work great.

I like your set-up using mic goosenecks. I think I'll steal that idea. I really like the DigiQ stand. Is that a mic stand? Nice!
I have bought the same Ikea light for that purpose. The good thing is it runs on DC and the power adapter is at the plug end so only low voltage DC running outside.
The bad news is it isn't 12V DC - so despite using the same type of DC lead as the Guru it can't share it. Actually come to think of it I could try.....
Weber make a handle light for the "Q". Happens to fit the large BGE perfectly http://www.amazon.com/Weber-6503-Q-Handle-Light/dp/B000WEPFT0
