I'll be cooking Friday night to support the high school band. Anyone have any advice on a canopy tent to purchase? They all look like the same basic design and materials - do I go for the cheapest I can find or should I be looking for something special?

Ez up seems to be the standard. I have done cheap and ez up. I have lost both, cheap on wore out quickly, ez up lost due to me being to lazy to tie it down in the bak yard during a 60 mile windstorm that came out of no where. Blew about 3 acres away. I bought two more ez ups!

I avoid the ones with plastic in all the joints, very weak.

I prefer the Caravan Brand over EZ-Up. THey are sturdy and easier to setup. I prefer California Palms over them all but they are more expensive.
