     Great looking egg house. Any overhang to keep the cook dry?

    There is about a two foot overhang for the cook
  • My Better Half is the Best!

    I've been meaning to post this for a month or two:

    I've owned my LBGE for a few years now and use it 2-3 times a week. I slipped a little this past winter because I had moved the table in to the garage and it really became a pain to move it to where I could use it and then move it back again. wife (love you baby!) came home from her new job one day and told me that another division of her employer sold Eggs and that she could get a good price. She said that she was thinking maybe for Father's day, birthday, next three Christmas', etc...maybe she would buy me another. To make a long story short, I got a Medium.

    Of course I needed a new table so I started planning (scheming) and got to building. Finally thought I would try to get the photos posted so here is my attempt




    (The lattice at the top in front is part of a canopy frame, not part of the table)


    It's not quite done, I'll be finishing it throughout the summer, but it is functional.

    To top things off, after attempting my first reverse sear on some nice steaks, I had to throw them back on after cutting in to them and finding they were not done inside. My Thermapen arrived yesterday. Told you she is the Best!!

    My wife refers to it as "The Hotel"  :-)

    Smoke flow is not a problem at all. My thought was to add a couple of roof vents but after a couple of cooks found it wasn't necessary. There is ventilation between the top of the back wall and the roof. Between going through there and just rising up and out it's been fine. I've done about 15 cooks on it and has never been an issue.
