Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Anyone ever make their own grill cover?

II have a large egg, and a custom built table.  I'd like to get a grill cover on before the weather starts to go south, but I don't want to spend a ton of cash if I don't have to.   I've done a couple Google searches, and it looks like I'd be able to make my own using canvas fabric, and a healthy dose of waterproofing spray.   The pre-made covers are somewhere around $80-$100.  I figure I could make one for about $20.  I haven't found too many examples of DIY covers for the egg, so I'd like to ask the group.

Has anyone ever tried this?  If so, how did it turn out?  Any pictures? Any tips you could pass along?

If you have the standard BGE cover, do you like it?  Is it worth the cash? 

Thanks for the help!
