Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Construction/Assembly Forum?

Hey Y'all.

Seems perhaps there should be a forum dedicated to repairs/assembly, or something... My XL is having all sorts of issues being held together. Anyone else find that the clinch studs: tiny aluminum pieces, with hardly any strength, just can't handle the weight and heft of the XL components. Maybe it's not even exclusively an XL problem!

Bought my XL in May 2012, lost both clinch studs on one whole hinge (right side), repaired, but in the process of reassembly, had a clinch stud pop right off while tightening a spring component.

Are we really meant to trust aluminum against ceramic and steel parts? It's only a millimeter and a half of the head of the stud to hold on... seems preposterous to me. Getting tired of undoing and redoing my egg assembly!

Anyone else feel similarly?
