Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Finally!!! Cypress table is finished and I'm ready to cook.

Lots of firsts today.  1st LBGE, 1st table completion, 1st cook tonight, and 1st post to this forum.  Thank you to Nola for the idea on the wood and for the advice along the way.  My dad and father in law helped me construct the table and that was incredible quality time in the shop.  The table is pecky cypress stained with natural finish.  I then applied 3 coats of West epoxy system and finished with spar varnish.  My wife thinks I'm crazy for all of the work done on the finish but it is well worth it to me.  It took lots of sanding and even more filling of the holes along the way but the finished product is extremely slick and shines like crazy.  The granite inlays are pieces of fireplace hearth cut to fit and the overall table design is from Whiz Flash-Burns.  I'm still learning the posting process and maybe one day i'll figure out the URL process so i can insert an image.  For now, I'm attaching pics of my project and hope they come out right.  Thanks
