Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

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
