Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Lighting solutions for the egg! What do you use? Post pics

What do you use for lighting the egg during night cooks besides the obvious flash light?  Would love to see some pics of what you have come up with. 
Thanks,
Casey

    I use Solar Lights mounted to my pergola that I found at lowes and used pieces from old lights to mount them.

    Not the brightest for pictures but works great to see the egg at night.

    My wife is absolutely in love with the head lamp, she thinks it's sexy  :-B

    When I am on my porch I stand in front of the porch light so it is useless.  That is on the project list.

    Built a special grill spot off my outdoor living room.  Measured it for a gasser and an egg.  Have a fan also to blow smoke away and keep me cool in the summer.  Have a barn light hanging down.  Photo is not great, but it is attached.

    Sodium light fixed to the house. Great brightness, but the yellow tint is not always ideal and it takes a few seconds to light up. I would do it again. Benefit: my kids can play in the yard even when it is pitch dark outside lol.

    Costco has 3 packs of head lamps currently with batteries for $ 9.99.  Great deal!  One to use & 2 to lose-

    I agree with the Costco head lamps. Had 3 gave a couple to friends kids need more. Pretty sure I still have 1.

    Change your lamp and ballast out to a metal halide. Make sure it's close in wattage( fixture is only rated for so much) then you will get rid of that yellow light and have crisp white light!

    It would be cheaper to buy an LED floodlight -- produces white light and lasts 30 years.  I have one on my garage to light the driveway -- it replaced a 175 watt mercury fixture -- the LED produces MORE light and uses only 32 watts of power.  Cost me about $93.00.
