    Trailblazer 4 LED headlamp from LL Bean for 24.95. This is what I use. It has an elastic band to fit on your head and you can adjust the angle as needed. I always have plenty of light right where I need it.

  • This one fits the Big Green Egg perfectly under the handle.  It is like it was made for it.

  • CSRAEgger - do you have a picture of it mounted? Thanks in advance.

    I don't on my iPad (which I'm using right now), but here is a link of another poster with some great pictures of it in use. Scroll down midway through the thread to see pictures.

    Any LED head lamp will do, and have other uses.  I bought one of those clamp on LED grill lights from Target a while back (mostly use it for other purposes), but it eats batteries.
  • +1 for the head lamp.  Effective and inexpensive.
  • I use a headlamp.

    Headlamp for me too. I usually have the dog out there with me at night so I can just turn to look at her too.

    I have tried all kinds of lights over the past few years - rope lights, solar lights, shop/work lights on an extension cord from the garage, LED headlamps. They were not very expensive but did not shed very much light, so I got what I paid for.

    About a month ago I had outdoor floodlights and GFCI outlets installed near my two outdoor cooking areas. It was pricey because I paid someone to do it, but if you're handy like that yo can probably do it yourself. It was the single best upgrade tp outdoor cooking I have ever had.... until I bought my egg a week later. Now I have great lighting (with a power outlet) for my cooking areas.
