Assembled my first egg today, a large. Read many, many, many posts in the archives first. Watched the video twice. Followed the directions carefully. Bent the hell out of the bolts and the flanges. Tested seal of closed egg with dollar bill (close egg on bill, pull bill out, verify resistance felt all the way around the dome). Resistance wasn't completely equal all the way around, but it wasn't bad, and the bill certainly didn't rattle around loosely. Calibrated thermometer in boiling water (adjusted for altitude), put in place with half a cork standoff. Stored spring hinge restraining straps for possible future use. Moved egg from nice warm house to 8 deg. F. deck (welcome to Michigan), where it now sits on its feet on a foamed concrete ember pad sold for use with fire pits, rain cap on top, firebox aligned, fire ring cut-outs up (what are those, anyway?), eggcessories stored inside, cover on, waiting for use.[p]So... what did I forget?
