    Looking for cover recommendations

    Thanks I'm gonna have a look. Just made a nice trade last night with a friend I have from another forum (TVWBB). He picked up a pretty nice Q320 but really wanted a Q2XX for it's portability. I have been looking for a reasonable Q3xx so I casually said "hey let's trade" sure enough a nice drive to Madison WI and I have a nice Q320 and he has a nice Q220 red head

    Hood, Here is a link to the place I picked up the cover for the XL BGE in the table. This is not the exact cover my table had the BGE in the center of table. http://www.jjgeorgestore.com/xl-big-green-egg-table-cover-54-wide-x-34-deep-for-jjgeorge-xl-egg-table/

    Maybe I'll have a look at that. I don't need it to go very long just to cover the grill head down to about 24" or so is all. Just to keep water from collecting in the grease pan. Because as many grills of this type it uses a wide flat shallow drawer under the fire box for grease collection

    Looking for cover recommendations

    Hood, You might take a look at some patio furniture covers to save some money. With that said you might look at something that covers an XL Big Green Egg and Table. Went through this goat rope myself a couple of years ago. I think it was a cover from JJ George that finally fit this oddball size table I built.
  7. So as some regulars know I have this Wolf grill. It's a giant 6 burner. Where I am having an issue is this. I would like to get a cover for it. However, while the width of the grill is not hard to accommodate (42" with side shelf down) the depth is hard to accommodate (32"). Every cover I look at is only for 24" deep. So WTF? Doesn't ANYONE make a cover for a truly large grill? I am sure Wolf is not the only brand that makes a grill with large dimensions like this.

    Social media just killed community forums everywhere. And now participation in social media appears to be rapidly declining so I really have no idea where all of this is headed. I wonder how much the younger <40 age group is into grilling and BBQing as well...

    What's Cooking

    Talk about bad weather our temps have been colder than we saw in Dec, Jan and Feb. For the first 3 weeks of April we got snow at least twice a week plus ice accumulation. We've simply extended January. Funny when temps got to 40 it felt so nice and warm. So yeah I've been cooking on my garage "herd". Last fall I picked up a Genesis Silver B in great shape for $20! It's a NG but I threw in some different orifices and have it in the garage on LP alongside my Q220. These along with my Lodge 2 burner cast iron grill for my stove top have been pressed into service. We've had a very hard and loooong winter here. So the deck grills have remained under cover until just this week! I currently have RCPlanebuyer designing some new heavy stainless cook grates for my Wolf grill, and thanks to issues with my Summit this year it's going to go away. Though I will confiscate those nice stainless steel grates from it for my Genesis and I will sell it with the cast iron grates off the Silver B. I also just rehabbed a sweet little Genesis Silver A and gifted it to a good friend of mine from my small group bible study from church. He was having some minor financial issues and asked could he buy a grill from me. So I surprised him and his wife with that gift plus a full tank of LP. They love it Sure wish we saw more participation here Keep grillin!

    Sounds awesome hood. Only have done one rack of ribs this year so far. Weather here is on the upswing after next day and half of rain. Ribs will make another appearance shortly.

    Did a wonderful slab of spares on my Summit yesterday. Low and slow with some nice oak smoke on them. Beautiful smoke ring, tender sweet and juicy no sauce required

    Smoked a Boston Butt last night will be taking it out of the BGE in an hour or two. Then later today will be grilling a Picanah and Tri-tip for a little neighborhood get together.

    I believe today is going to turn things around. At least here in the city. and it's, "Where HAVE all the posters gone?" but you knew that.

    Heck, I forgot I was even a member here.
  19. We had some snow, and it did get rather cold for about 3 weeks, but besides that pretty mild down here in Ga...

    Oh yeah you guys are getting nailed pretty bad out east. Funny Alaska is almost "tropical" and here it's supposed to be spring. Go figure. I think it was 2 weeks ago I was sitting on pins and needles. We had something like 8 or 9" rain in a matter of hours. Yard looked like a small lake, culverts running so hard it sounded like rapids on a river. Last night a blast of snow and cold again. Ugh. I want to get my boat up to the main garage and get it ready for some spring fishing. Yard too muddy though
  21. Hello Dave and 'hood! Kinda figured you guys would be the first to respond.. We've missed most of the heavy snow this winter, but they're calling for something real bad rolling in tonight into tomorrow. Fingers crossed it'll just be rain. Last weeks N'easter laid down a ton of water around here, I lost one of my dogwood trees, broke off right at ground level due to the heavy winds. Sure dampened the grilling urges! Anyway - glad to hear from you, I'm sure others will begin participating again soon. mike

    Where All The Flowers (posters) Gone?

    I bought 2 grills recently. Got a Genesis Silver B (I think) Natural Gas in darn near mint condition for $25 and just yesterday I bought a Genesis Silver A (2 burner LP) in good to decent shape for $35 which I am going to refurbish and gift to a friend. Otherwise around here it's been a horrid winter for grilling. November though the early part of December we had wonderful weather and thought we were going to have another no snow mild winter........................................WRONG! All hell broke loose just before Christmas and it's been bad since. Used my Summit for only like the 4th time all winter a couple days ago. Otherwise I have been "grilling" indoors on my Lodge Cast Iron dual burner size grill/griddle. Or I have been subbing my little Q220 here and there but with things being so cold, icy and snowy all year even then not too much because I didn't want to put a car out to use the grill in the garage. Things starting to get a little better but weather reports indicating we'll be back to January weather all week (bitter cold, ice and snow) sooooooooooooooo SICK of this weather.
  23. Hey Mike, hope all is well. I'm here. Hoping that we can kick this off again this spring and summer and get the BBQ band back together. Lets do this! On a positive note, at least this software is Russian Proof:>)
  24. Wow. I've watched these forums go from a rocky start, to a mellow run, then literally an explosion of new sign-ups - through great periods of photo postings, new grills, hardware, recipes, techniques - you name it, this was the place to be for all things BBQ. So, it's sad now to log in and see basically no activity since last year. Spring is approaching, I know we normally slow down for the winter months, but never a completely dry period like this. Here's hoping as the warm weather breaks soon (at least here in the Northeast), things will start perking up. Lets go folks - anybody still grilling? Who's bought (or is going to buy) a grill for the new approaching season? What's your favorite meat to grill/smoke? We can't let this place die - let us know what's happening in your grillin' world! For me, no new grill as my ancient Kirkland is still working just fine (albeit replacing burners annually but cheaply @ $4 per burner), steak is still my favorite though ribs and chicken are close behind. Am I gonna have to post pictures to stir things up here? Don't make me bring out my camera! ;-) Hello 2018 and hello to all you members, past and present that are maybe like me, just popping in but not posting. Lets' get a fire going! mikey
