My beloved Mini developed a crack, down the side
And across the bottom
It was also stuck in the old "nest", which seemed to have caused the problem.
Took it to my area Dealer (Outdoor Home, Springfield Mo.), they consulted with BGE, and 2 days later my base was replaced under warranty, I purchased a new nest, and the Mini is reborn
Broke in the new base with some Dizzy Dusted local free range organic skinless chicken quarters with a little chunk of peach, 300ish indirect for a couple hours...
Thanks to Outdoor Home and BGE, great service!
