I have been thinking about making one for my XL BGE. I too partake in both bbq and woodworking.I don't like the feel, its too thin for my big hands. An XL BGE should have an extra large handle in my opinion.

I was checking out your site, I like the way you overlap the metal bracket and hide the screws on the XL BGE handle, nice little bit of re-engineering there!!!
I have always called that quilted maple but .... I know there are many names for the same wood.
