It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

  • 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?
