  • Made these as described, but with some additional spices in the saute mix. Turned out great! Gone in less than 5 minutes off the plate...
  • My 2 large eggs are grouted in to a flagstone outdoor kitchen and have been for 2 years. No issues to date with expansion/cracking. I am not convinced that ceramic Egg expands that much with heating. The grout will crack before the Egg does. I worri…
  • Here's our new outdoor kitchen in warmer times.... Now it has a roof.... If I could just learn to cook as well as folks on this forum... Happy New Year to all.
  • Good for you. I have to lose about 15-18 pounds. went to mexico for a week and for the first time I felt fat. did 40 minutes on the elliptical watching Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours. trying not to snack and stay on the wagon...good luck.

  • Another hard wired option is this grill light. It is probably much brighter than the LED lights and will light up the whole kitchen. It is halogen and will get hot. It is pretty durable and reasonably priced: http://www.amazon.com/Designers-Edge-…
  • Here is mine. Two large Eggs and a gas side burner. Not stone, but tile over concrete with flagstone countertops. Gas side burner. End table has several options for the centerpiece: fire table, fountain that flows champagne or punch or an ice bucket…
  • Thanks for all the compliments. It was quite a struggle to plan and implement, from the pool design onward. We are finally enjoying it and I am learning more about using the BGE with every cook.
  • I am in the same situation and have gotten good advice from several people here. There is a good thread on this recently that has the info in it. Look below this thread and you will see it under "smoke under roof" or some other such title...
  • I would put a metal vent on the back of the enclosure space if the back is not open, like the kind that are used for outdoor kitchens, to allow circulation of air around the lower portion of the BGE. Any gap between the edge of the table and the edg…
  • Gator, Thanks for the useful links for posting. Looking at my picture as an abstraction (rather than a weather snapshot), I should get out there today and reshoot it with the doughnut hole that is currently in the lower right of the picture more …
  • another try after re-reading the post....
  • another try after reading your link.... [img size=150][/img]
  • here is what the Forum FAQ's say: Put the image url between bbcode "img" tags (you can use the "Img" button above the post window to start and end the tag). That is, click the "Img" button, paste the url to your photo, which must already be up…
  • another try.... [img size=150][/img]
  • I just posted this as an example of the weather here this week in Maryland.... I am new and just learning how to link photos to Photobucket.... I also learned photography in Boston where I grew up and developed black and white photos in the da…
  • I will try and post my first picture now of the weather here in Maryland. If the picture link works, this is my partially completed swim up bar after the 30" of snow, with 10-20" more on the way tonight....those pointy things are the seats of t…
  • Thanks for all the valuable input. As nothing is built yet, it seems that the double roof with a vent (like "Sparky" has) is the way to go. I am not really enthusiastic about the bulk, noise and cost of a commercial vent system, and will have the Eg…
  • Do you mean like a large range hood with a fan and an exhaust vent? This might be cheaper than a cupola or roof vent...
  • thanks for all the good ideas and detailed input. The consensus seems to be two large eggs for the most cooking versatility (and to swap grills, etc.), although there are some folks with a large/medium or large/small combo. For less grilling, a sma…
  • I am new to BGE and am going to put a large Egg in my new outdoor kitchen. We are in the planning stage now. If you were building a outdoor kitchen with no gas grill (but a gas sideburner for sauces, soups, etc.), would you put in 2 eggs? There will…
