We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • That's kinda what I expected. I'll probably end up going with a patio furniture cover. I like the venting idea in BGE covers so maybe I can recruit someone with a little sewing know-how to vent it! Thanks for the reply.
  • Thanks so much. It's like most things in life . . . just takes someone with a little experience to show us the way.
  • I'll get it eventually! [img size=150] [img size=150] [img size=150]
  • Yeah, obviously I screwed it up. I'll try again. . . [img size=150] and here's my maiden cook! [img size=150] Mmmmmmmm![/img]…
  • I'm likin' the combo idea more and more - maximizes the versatility (one big reason the Egg makes sense in the first place!) The only really big cooks I would do would be burgers/dogs/brats and those are easy enough to keep warm off the grid.
  • "everyday" cooking for four. I like to do cooks for 8 once a month or so. Occasionally I'll do burgers or with an egg I'd do brisket or butts for up to 25.
  • Thanks for all the replies! Excellent info. I had really decided on an XL but sounds like a large will be the ticket. One other ?: Do you need more lump (how much more) to cook only 2 or 3 steaks on an XL vs. a large?
