Need to Buy: Daisy Wheel for Medium Green Egg

edited October 2012 in EggHead Forum

I bought a Medium 2nd hand today - missing the fire grate and daisy wheel.   I might go High-Que for the grate but haven't yet gone to a dealer to get a price for the daisy wheel.

If someone here has one available I'd be interested in purchasing it from you.   Contact me at nomo4me aht geemail dot com

Thanks

Mike

    Why get one. Cook on Large, Small, and Mini w/o one and no problems.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    I like the daisy as well, needed or not. Just saw one listed on eBay yesterday, check there.

    I'm with @Sgt93, I like the DFMT, use it for about 90% of my temp control. I think the medium and large use the same DFMT. In Canada, the MDFMT (Medium Dual Function Metal Top) is $60. In the US, it will probably be about $45. Your dealer would be happy to get one for you. Always worth a try to see what the dealer FOB price is if you are not in too much of a hurry.

    Here you go. $28 with $12 for shipping, not a bad deal and not my auction. Not affiliated in any way. Just trying to help. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Big-Green-Egg-/190739804815?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c68fa728f

    Noted the US dealer price is $39.99 for a MDFMT, (Fred's). A local dealer might even sell you one off a floor model.

    I don't use it on the medium either, I think the use of the DW is personal preference, but by no means required.

    I suppose I could control temps fine without the DW but farting around with it is just part of the experience that I kind of like.   I did grab one of the ones on ebay and thanks Sarge for the link.  

    Now to decide on the High-que or factory fire grate.

    No problem. I have a High-Que coming in for my small tomorrow. I hear it's a must on the small but unsure if needed on the medium. My XL does fine without one.

    @MikeG, I have the high-q for my medium, for sears and 400-600 grills and cooks, no difference, but for anything under 400, the high-q is great, no more wiggling to stir the embers. I think I use a little more lump - but because it is actually burning I suppose that is to be expected. 
    Last pork butt was a dream, set it and forget it.
