The egg I bought last year has unfortunately succumbed to a manufacturer's defect - the finish flaked and chipped off. I guess it happens at times, and I'm getting a warranty replacement. A bummer, but so far have been happy with the way they've taken care of me.
But that leaves me with a dome and base. They don't look great - the finish is completely flaked off in patches - but according to BGE it's just cosmetic damage. I guess I could find someone who might want to rebuild it, but it hardly seems worth it. From what I can tell, it would take about $500 to buy all the parts, and you'd end up with an unwarranteed ugly egg.
So, any ideas on what to do with these parts? I could use them as planters, I guess. I'd love to see if I could somehow convert it into a cold-smoker, but not sure how. Or turn the base over and put a tabletop on the top? I'm open to suggestions! Seems like something creative could be done with these parts!
