I was doing a pizza last night, but that is another story. I had the egg at 550 degrees, when I open up the lid to check the progress. The lid shifted in the band. As this is the first time it happened, needless to say, first I said it, then I loaded my pants with it!! Well, finished the cook, and wife raved again.
To my point, next day, I was tightening the upper band bolt and it sheared right off in my hand. Well, good thing this is a maintenance day, and not a cooking day. Off to the Home Depot to get the 24 cent part.
Now I am all torqued up to 10 foot pounds (yes, with a torque wrench), and have a backup available. I also double nutted each bolt.
