Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Torquing the band bolts

I'll admit it. When I put the egg together I guessed at the torque setting. My 1/2 drive torque wrench only goes down to 50 ft lbs. So I bought a new torque wrench that will measure the required 10 ft lbs. Wow. I'm lucky the dome didn't fall completely off-- I wasn't even close. I must admit though it's pretty scary watching those bolts bend that much. ---just food for thought for those like me who 'guessed' the torque setting!!
