It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

New Egg Table -- Just Finished!

Hey everyone,

I finished building a table for my new large egg over the weekend.  I used Redwood and based it on the plans from the Naked Whiz's site.  I made a few minor modifications and may continue to work on it down the road, but for now, I'm absolutely loving it!  I'm planning on doing my first cook on it this week.  Very excited!

    2x4x8 was around $6-7.  Not sure what that works out to per board foot.

    Thank you very much!  It's in a nook in my yard that just happens to work out to within an inch of the table's measurements.

    Wow.  That is super cheap.  About a $1.30 a board foot.  It's typically more than twice that.

    Yeah, it wasn't too costly at all.  All the lumber was purchased at Home Depot.  I live in California, so maybe Redwood is cheaper out here because it's more available than other parts of the country.  Either way, it didn't dent the wallet too much, and the wood looks pretty amazing.

    Great looking table. I just finished one for a buddy out of white oak. Those prices are good. White oak was around $5.50/board foot. I used 100 board feet.

    Totally agree about Redwood!  Not going to stain.  Just Thompson's Water Seal (clear), which has already been applied.
