  • Mickey said: This is a first. Opened one of the Larges (older one w/o felt) and found multi color mold.  Now full box full of lump and full out burn.  sorry, but that's what happens when you stay away so long! Your eggs get unruly and th…
  • Jeepster47 said: @scmoose ... go to Menard's (or a similar big box store) and ask for fire bricks ... they're not where you expect them in the store.  Failing that, check out Ace Hardware for "Rutland Replacement Fire Brick" with free in stor…

  • That seems a bit expensive. I use the blue Simply Right® brand nitrile exam gloves from SAMS. They come double boxed with 200 per box. I recall we only pay like $13 for those 400 gloves. I've never had one break on me and I use them for food, painti…
  • Guess you forgot what all was in my original reply to you including the links to pictures, but here it is again... Are you familiar with the application process whereby you compress or "bunch" the gasket back into itself thus making it both thicker…

  • This thread is either sinking like a rock, or maybe it is not a common destination for the general group here! Just the same I have now read more threads there and I do see some posters whose names I recognize. I also see the format and dialogue is …
  • scmoose said: This is what Ive got so far.  I think I will use a thinner brick on the sides to improve air flow though.  Yes - firebrick will work easier for you as the ones I use, pictured above, are 9 x 4.5 x 1.25. I bought 6 for $10 15 …

  • scmoose said: No it wouldnt.  Thanks. Not being a smarty *ss here, but even BGE hasn't figured a good way to ship a PS via mail or whatever without breakage. You need an agreement with the seller as for who owes what to whom and what kind …
  • Given you don't need the rain protection then the biggest advantage is going to be just cosemetic. The stainless steel, mushroom shaped cap of the SmokeWare looks so much cooler than a rusty Daisy! 
  • byrne092 said: Yep! And if I remember correctly if you do open and don't go through all 3, you can refrigerate for a period of time. Have you had a chance to try them out yet @RRP ? One thing to note, I did not go by the recommended cooking t…
