It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. 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?
