  • I guess I'll try it without high expectations
  • I have about 100# of 3" - 4" diameter branches ~8" long each that have been drying in the shed for just over a year. I tried to remove the bark on them and it's just too hard. I guess keeping the bark on isn't all bad?

  • I occasionally stay in Waldorf for work, unfortunately I can't come up with any excuses to go there for business during the eggfest. My sister lives less than 15 mi from Humphrey's charcoal factory so I'll give some of theirs a try next time I go v…
  • has American lump in the off season and early in the season but by now they will only have Argentinian or Paraguayan lump until the end of the summer. I have around 10 bags of American RO and plan on making a pilgrimage to Humphrey's Charcoal the…
  • I would think it would be very difficult to pull something over on a Co. as big as Sam's and Wal-Mart. From a legal standpoint that would be one of the last companies I would want to try to get over on if I were out to snooker someone.
  • "but it ain't moot if you're concerned about the SS oxidizing and loosing its properties." My point exactly. I realize this forum is dedicated to the egg but I happen to have an egg and a recently built Stumps clone, the entire innards of the cl…

  • Are you sure lump burns that hot? I believe this tube was around 1500 deg F when the picture was taken...
  • Which leads to the question of how much Cr in the cook would be considered unacceptable? I personally don't stand over my smoker when I cook, though I may if it were pizza, so for me inhalation would be much less than I experience when I walk throug…
  • I was speaking with a metallurgist from a company we are doing business with and decided to ask him his opinion. Roughly from our conversation.... Inconel is much better to use in the firebox than SS as Cr not Ni would be the problem at elevat…
  • I've asked our QC to dig up MSDS' for Inconel and SS. I probably should have explored this much earlier but I'm still very curious. I'll get better information when our welding engineer comes back from vacation.
  • Stike, you've piqued my interest. Any metallurgist types out there that might know at what temps this will become an issue of concern? I would have guessed that SS would be much less of a concern than Galvanized.
  • The outer skin on my smoker is split horizontally to allow for differential expansion. I would say the inner assembly expands around 3/16 to 1/4 during a typical cook, at least that's how much the upper section of the skin moves up the lower sectio…
  • Fishlessman, Do you worry about Ni leaching into the cook from the Inconel? Beside the ungodly cost of Inc. I was afraid to use it in my Stump clone because of the high Ni content. I kicked around making the firebox from 1/4 622 but chose to us…
  • Is that something new or old as I've never seen one like it before. Is it from BGE or is it aftermarket? Thanks
  • Perfect! Thanks for the help, Ed
  • Or you would have said.... here we go steelers ...here we go!!!!!!!!! n'at How many of yinz are actually from here? (the Burgh)

  • I've been using this torch for over a year and love it. My propane tank was around half full when I got the torch and it still has a little left in it, not much though I'm sure. I blast the coals for about 10 seconds with the torch then shut off t…
  • Letts-Do-It,[p]It's a large.
  • jerseymatt,[p]I found this table at lowes on clearance, [p][p][p]I made a ss shelf and put the egg into it. The opening in the granite perfectly fits the egg.[p][p][p]I have less than $75 in this table.
  • Just Plain Mike,[p]I don't know much about JB Weld so I can't say whether or not it will work. I will say that you should look at Gatoregg's table as his idea is far better than what I did.
  • GatorEgg,[p]That cart is awesome!!! I might have to change my plans after seeing this.[p]Thanks!
  • Photo Egg,[p]That is really nice! I kind of like it better than my box idea.
  • TRex,[p]You are correct, my intent is to make a stainless box with a door on it, I figure the steel will transfer the heat from the egg and keep the Stoker warm and keep it from acting funny in the winter. Now I just have to figure out a way to wea…
  • Darnoc,[p]I have less than $65.00 invested in the table. I Purchased the table from Lowe's on closeout, it was originally a "22 1/2" deluxe granite kettle cart grill". See links below for full details,[p]http://www.eggheadforum.com/wwwboard/messag…
