Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • I used a die grinder with a carbide bit. I fastened it to a board, and used the board like a compass. I measured how big a hole I wanted, divide by two, and that is the radius for the circle. Bolt to table top, and cut away. I will try to upload…
  • Awesome trade!!!  I use the plate setter legs down, and place the pizza stone on top.  I also use the three BGE feet between the stone and the plate setter.  Many variations to this technique, find what works for you.  
  • When was the last time you did a full clean out on the egg?  I take mine completely apart after about 10 or so cooks.  By completely apart, i mean the firebox comes out, and I vacuum the entire egg with an old shop vac.  I also try to load the charc…
  • I use Royal Oak Steakhouse, green bag.  BGE charcoal is made(packaged) by Royal Oak.  Works great, long cooks, hot cooks, all around good stuff.  I buy 9 pound bags for approx. $3.50- $3.80.  It was on sale and I bought 35 bags.  That should last a …
  • For what its worth, I bought a table at a restaurant supply store and cut the hole in it myself.  Used the stainless racking and a concrete paver to make up the base.  It came with wheels and is by far much stronger than I could have ever made out o…
  • Hey guys, I used a stainless steel restaurant table to build my entire table. It shines up with minimal effort, and will outlive me.

  • For what its worth, I use an old shop vac to clean out the egg. It keeps me from getting ashes all over the deck, and it gets it super clean.
  • Hey guys, just my opinion, but I like stainless for my table top. It polishes up, and isn't as heavy as granite. My table is from a restaurant supply store, and works great.

  • I purchased a stainless steel restaurant table on wheels. It measures approx. 30x36, and it fits my large BGE perfectly. I cut the hole in the center, and placed a stainless steel adjustable rack underneath with a 24x24 concrete paver on it. I am…
  • For what its worth, I would use a router and a rotary trim bit to cut the hole, then use a round over bit to finish the edge. I have used a home made jig that attaches to the router to cut various size circles, it is much easier and cleaner that a …
  • For what it's worth, I bought a Stainless Prep table from a Restaurant supply company and cut a hole in the top to hold the egg. I then used an sdjustable stainless shelf to hold the egg at the correct height.. Place a concrete paver on the shelf a…
  • Hey guys, It Has been cold in Minnesota so that has hampered me from using it more. I tend to freeze my tail off lighting and regulating temps. It is going to be in the mid 20's this weekend, so I am going to try beef ribs. So far all has been…
