It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the feedback on this forum.  I am new to the forum and relatively new to the egg but love every minute of it.  Have been smoking quite a while on other equipment but now I am selling out to dedicate to the egging lifest…
  • I see you were warned about higher temperatures in yours.  Was this due to the age or because of the JB Weld repairs?  Mine is not cracked and I don't want to bust it by going too hot if that is not recommended practice.
  • Thank you kindly for the information.  I'm looking to possibly blast and paint the original bands and just replace the lower vent as you did.  I may leave it in its original brown egg color  :)
  • I'm so excited to get it restored that I can't stand it.  Even though I can use my two larges anytime this project just seems "special"
  • I noticed your repair here and I have a very similar egg I got from a friend.  Did you replace the bands and lower damper with new ones?  If so did they fit ok?
