Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Beware of Fire Hazards

Yesterday I dismantled my egg in prep for my new table.  After reading several posts here about the potential hazard I had been really curious as to what the wood beneath my egg would look like after 10+ years of use.  I had TWO 12" sq ceramic (or porcelain) tiles between the egg and the BGE cypress table.  The tile cracked very early on and has been cracked for probably ~9 1/2 years.  I would also suspect that some of the heat was transferred to the wood through the cracks as there was a direct route for the heat transfer.  Beware of the fire hazard folks.

Geaux Tigers!!  Maybe I am a bit biased, but LSU beat Bama at their own game but lost focus on that Bama drive.

    You didn't have the little green feet (air gap) I suppose?

    LSU should have won that game.  We beat them in just about every stat except rushing.  Two missed FGs, some questionable calls and failing to stop them on that last drive just did us in.  blah.

  • Correct...I did not have the feet.  My new table has a slab of 2cm granite beneath the egg.  I need to look up the heat capacity of granite vs the tile, but I am sure it is much higher.

    Yep, tough to stomach that loss my friend.  Nick was beat and he knows it.  McCarron knew it last night hence the reason he was crying like a baby on the bench at the end of the game.

    LSU flat outplayed Bama. Like one guy said "I enjoyed that loss more than some of the wins", LOL. I think our team and QB is coming of age. Proud of them, epecially with being 8-10 starters short. I'll be home for the Ole Miss game, cant wait.

    Just replaced the middle three boards on my table. Went 5 yrs with only the green feet like the dealer set it up for me. Asked about a clean burn with that set up and was advised not to and to check my table. Had a hole burned through on the middle board. Thanks to the guy's on this forum I avoided a disaster.

    By questionable calls, Do you mean the offensive pass int?

    There's always one or two of those, I shoulda said questionable coaching decisions.   I don't know what the mad hatter was thinking in the 4th quarter.

    Yeah I think Les was to blame. LSU outplayed Bama  until that final drive but wouldn't have been in that situation if not for some "Questionable Coaching"

    I think LSU outplayed Bama - but - MadHatter coaching mistakes cost them the victory.  

    Back to the topic, in the old days (pressed charcoal, many many years ago) - had cleaned out the grill the day after grilling.  Put the ashes in a paper grocery sack.  Sat the sack on the edge of the patio.   Just so happened, was close to the wood siding of the house.

    We went out to dinner that night, but decided to come back home early.  Came into a house filled with smoke.   Caught the problem in time, no significant damage - but a real wake up to what smoldering ash can do....

    You're right. Fortunately, Les was the difference in the game. I don't think LSU could've played any better than they did. I also don't think Bama could've played any worse.
