Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

Been working on putting the roof over the outdoor kitchen. This thing is taking me forever.

    Man that looks great.  Did you buy the 'joists' (I assume that is what it is called for the gable area) or did you build them?

    I have a similar setup. Highly recommend a metal roof and a ceiling fan. Looks great.

    Thanks guys. Been working on it a couple hours each night. Taking me forever.  Cant wait until its done.

    No, I built the joists. I am cheap.

    jeroldharter, I plan on doing a ceiling fan but why the metal roof? Was thinking about going with regular shingles?

    Metal is expensive but I did not need a huge quantity. I like the durability. It sheds snow easily. I like the sound of rain. I have a hip roof with rafters so the metal roof was screwed directly to the rafters - did not need sheathing so that offset the cost somewhat. Just my preference.

    No im just mikeb9550. sorry...


    Thanks jerold.. I was originally looking at fire resistance when I read shingles can withstand 2 ours of burn time. But then I also ready that you can strip the roof with 1x4s instead of sheathing. That would be easier. Will have to price it out. I dont need much either.

    Thanks for the tips.
