We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Who's ditched there spring?

    I've removed mine to adjust my gauge with boiling water, and I put the clip back on when I re-installed the gauge.  When I use the BBQ Guru DigiQ to control my temps, I clip the alligator clip of the pit temp probe onto the spring-clip for the dome gauge

    Mine is gone, Chris at Dizzy Pig showed us in class that by removing it you can spin it easier which means you point the thermometer temp you want to hold at the 12 o'clock position which can be seen better from a distance. For me that means I can see it from the window over the kitchen sink. I don't have to walk out to check temp. If the needle is at 12 o'clock I'm good to go.

    Great tip!!

    It's actually an old car racing trick. Racers will turn the tach so redline is at 12 o'clock so it's easy to see, without looking down when they should be shifting. I never would have adapted it to the egg.

    I 86'd mine on both eggs.  It's worthless.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
