New dome design...

Has anyone else seen the new multi-piece dome?


I surely hope not. No pics of the act because I don't want it to have happened.

I was doing a kickass gasket replacement that would keep me from ever needing to do it again. Here is a sneak peek:


As I was realigning the dome, I must have have not tightened the band enough because I lifted it up and the dome kept going. I didn't even look twice. I went inside and sat down with a beer to reflect on the last year with my medium. So much for the pork butt tomorrow. Sorry @caliking, no pork bao tomorrow.

Called the dealer. New dome is 146 bucks and won't be here for at least 1-2 weeks. I have a bastard Costco egg without warranty but they will take it back(Good guy Costco). New medium is 629 and 659 at 2 nearest dealers. I decided to check in on the large so I can be as cool as the rest of you AR/swing grate crowd. 799 and 849 for egg, nest, and plate setter. I was never much of a math nut but it seems like I can get a new large for about the same price as fixing mine(mine was 660 invested for compared parts of deal). There seems to be a silver lining to this. The 2 fests near me(5/4 in Waldorf and 6/1 @ Dizzy Pig) are selling the demo larges for 750. Not much of a deal worth waiting for. SWMBO didn't even want to talk to me after I told her. Later, I presented the options in such a way that she said "you might as well get the large". Did I mention silver lining?

In terms of my sweet gasket ring, I'll need to see about doing it again with whatever I get and I will discuss it then.

It will be a somber weekend. At least my daughter kept me happy. She is 14 months and is now pointing to my pregnant wife's abdomen saying "bay... be". Good stuff.
