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

Best woods for a table?

I'm getting my first Egg this Saturday (a Father's Day gift from my family) and I've already drawn out the plans for a table to build around it- complete with a nice, 24"x40" speckled granite slab countertop appropriated from my father-in-law's backyard following his kitchen renovation.

I'm a good woodworker, but I haven't worked with outdoor furniture before, so my question is- what woods are recommended for the job? I've ruled out PT lumber, and would prefer something that stands out against the granite (cypress and white cedar fade to a silver-grey that would blend in too much.) I'm also interested in a sustainable wood.

I'm currently leaning towards red cedar, but not sure of its availability in my area (Northern California.) Any good backups to have in mind when I hit the lumber yard?
