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

Rehabbing a $125 Egg

I'm the guy who asked earlier for advice about getting a large BGE into a Prius. It all worked out. For $125, I got the base & lid of what I think is a large BGE, rusty ash door, rusty hinge & bands, fire rings in two diameters (one is broken into two usable pieces), larger and smaller metal grill, ceramic ash grate, ceramic lid cap.

Here's a link to some photos:

No thermometer or iron daisy wheel cap.
I think the firebox is missing, although I do have two fire rings (one is split in two).

I would like to repaint the whole thing at some point and, if appropriate, fill the crack in the lid.

Do I indeed need a "firebox" and where do I get one cheap? What else would you do to this puppy, in order of priority? I'll probably upgrade just a little at a time.

Thanks for any & all help.
