Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Wood for Table?

I am looking at building a side cart for the Egg (as opposed to a full table to put the Egg inside of). Have a plan for a cart but trying to decide on the wood. Had decided on cedar but the local Home Depot and Lowes both carry rough cut cedar mainly for fencing/decking - I guess that would work but would require some extensive sanding and the various pieces (4x4, 2x4, etc) dont have the same characteristics across the cedar. Called a local cedar company and they suggested redwood that is smooth on all 4 sides - which is enticing because it is already smooth but nearly 3x the price.

Have you used utility-type cedar from the big hardware stores and sanded it down or what have you done with regards to wood type? Thanks.
