Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Cleaned, Felted and Doored

Instead of cooking yesterday, I took advantage of some rare free time to do some much-needed maintenance to my Small BGE. First of all, I removed the innards and took out all of the ash. While the firebox was out, I was able to replace just the door part of the slide door and now that is moving as it should. Thank you Ed Fisher for the replacement part.[p]The final item was a replacement of the felt gasket. I seem to go through the gasket every three to six months. As part of the gasket replacement came a loosening and tightening of the bands in order to reseat the dome.
I replaced the insides and put the cover back on.[p]Tonight we will have Chicken fajitas cooked over mesquite charcoal.[p]Happy Grilling,

    Next time try the Rutland fiberglass stove gasket. It will last for many years. Use the 5/8 inch flat one. Billy

    Billy,[p]Thanks for the tip and where can you buy this stuff. Both my Eggs need new gaskets.[p]K~G

    Menards carries it. It comes in round or flat. Get the flat. One kit will do a large Egg with about 4" left over, and includes the glue. Billy
