Ceramic Top

edited 7:29AM in EggHead Forum
Hey All You GURU Experts:
Most of the chat on the Forum talks about the use of the daisy wheel top with the BBQ GURU. No one has mentioned using the old style ceramic top that comes with the large BGE. Can it be used? What are the pros and cons versus the daisy wheel?

    Unless I misunderstood you..the ceramic top is for putting the egg out...if you try to use it with the guru or anything else, you will get NO airflow..please explain further....[p]Wess

  • WessB,[p]It's fine to use the ceramic top with the Guru, during a low and slow. The fan is strong enough to push the air out... however..... It's possible to backfeed hot air and damage the fan if the temperatures are in the 300 + range and you close the lid, trapping air, and forcing it out the Guru...

    I think he's referring to using the top as the top air control, which is what we had to do before the cast iron daisy wheels came along. You just sort of tilt the lid on the top to control the size of the opening.[p]So yes you could use that with a guru, and just open it enough that the smoke isn't finding it's way out somewhere else.[p]Hope that helps
