We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Retaining bracket for dome thermo
The bracket that holds my dome thermo to the Egg no longer functions. It slips off easily and the thermo rattles around even when the bracket does stay in place. I have the newer style of dome thermo (Tel-Tru). Should I just get another bracket from my dealer, or is there a better thermo with which I should be working? I use my Maverick to monitor the temp after I have food on the Egg, but I like to be able to monitor preheating at a glance by rotating my dome thermo until my desired temp is at 12 o'clock (one of the first tricks I learned reading this forum).
Also, do small pieces on the Egg normally fail at this rate? In three months, I've had a cracked fire ring, broken bolts (the ones attaching the hinge to the dome's retaining band), and now this (admittedly minor) failure. The Egg's warranty is great, but still, that's a piece a month.
