Very, very sad news tonight. My dome fell out of its brace and is in pieces. Services to be held tomorrow. Don't want to explain how much of an idiot I am. Anyway, does Anyone know if the company sells replacement domes?

    Ouch.

    How in the world? Did the bands come loose? Did you drop the dome closed?

  • I would contact your dealer for a replacement dome.... that is where I would start.

    Good luck

  • Bands were loose and I knew it. I had the upper band loose due to alignment issues and it had been working fine. I had it up to 700 to sear some filet mignon and after burping I opened and I just had to watch as it fell out. Too hot to stop it.

    I shattered the dome on a medium a few months ago.  Replacement cost $150 and took about 10 days to get from my local BGE store.  Mine was from a really stupid mistake I made when replacing the bolts with stainless steel ones.

  • Thanks for the responses. Good to know replacements are available. Doesn't sound like I will have any BGE cooking over the holiday weekend, but will call the local dealer tomorrow morning first thing.

    Call Big Green Egg directly. I spoke with a guy a few months back about something tht was my fault. The guy (Duane, I believe) was very helpful. HE said they have returned and spare parts all over their shop and asked exactly what part I needed. He called me back the same day and put it in the mail for me at no charge. No promises, but worth a shot. Their customer service is top notch. I'm sure they'll do something to help you out.

  • I was at my local dealer and saw the replacement parts lists.  They have all the parts and costs.  I don't think they are that crazy.  I think the large dome was $300 but this is in Canada where all prices are double.

    I feel for you.

    Cheers

    All the parts are available, per the current price list - I don't know if all former models/stles are covered, but I'm sure if your egg is less than 5 years old, they will have a dome for you. Call your dealer.

  • My dads egg had the dome fall TWICE  but luckily both times it was next to a wall and it caught it so he hasnt had to replace it.  I added a nest handler to mine when i had it apart and moved from Lubbock to Albuquerque. I keep a 7\16 wrench handy to tighten the nuts occasionally .

    NOT WHEN ITS HOT!!!!!
