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!

Care to share your mounts for CyberQ or other stoker?

Looking for a creative way to keep the fan and cyberQ out of the weather that doubles as storage.

Thinking a tupperware box for the fan that I modify so the lid closes around the fan and I leave a hole in the bottom for airflow.

Covering the actual CyberQ should be easier.

Before I rig something hideous up...anyone have an elegant solution they care to post a pic of?

Thanks guys.

  • nolaegghead - do you have a better shot of your setup for the stoker in this post:


    did you just screw a piece of wood to the gooseneck and attach the included mount from bq guru?

    I was thinking something along the lines of what you have. Functional without being completely devoid of form.

    Yeah, I do have a better shot of it somewhere.  The top of the gooseneck is threaded.  I didn't have a tap that matched it (weird thread) or a nut that fit it, so I drilled a hole in a piece of wood and epoxied the threads in.  Then I screwed the supplied mount on the wood.

    Retrospectively, I should have got a nut, punched a hole in the stainless mount and bolted it on.  It's a little loose from dragging the cover on and off.  Still secure, just a little loose.  I really like the goosenecks.  Keeps the light and controller off the table top and away from pooling water, beer and food.

    I'll probably buy the nut and fix it one of these days. 

    Weather proofing is just a matter of putting a plastic bag over it.
