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!

the dmft fell off last winter and the bail went somewhere? i figured it would show up when the snow melted. no such luck.
before and after. new bail of 1/8th 316 stainless and a stainless spring from the hardware store.

    Amazing the effect of the new bail on the condition of the daisy wheel. Think I'm going to have to try that too. B)

    How did it go from orange to black? Definitely an improvement on the original dmft! Nice job!

    Mine fell off, twice and repaired twice before I added some nomex to tighten the seal...

    thanks ,, i was pretty sane about it [due to the 100°heat]. went with the first try and i bought enough for 316 for several attempts.

    looks good, bill. but if mine ever breaks (not likely, since i very rarely use it), i doubt i'll repair it. never use it at all for anything higher than 250°. keep meaning to try a 250° cook without it, but haven't yet. bet it'll work though.
