Good looking bird. Immature hen? I'm surprised the aylmeri aren't wider. Most of the Georgia falconers I knew used an extra wide aylmeri that had a large grommet down low for the jesses, and a smaller (size '0') above for the bell attachment. This a…
I do use a drip pan, elevated off of the plate setter with four foil balls. I will sometimes pour a bottle of beer into the drip pan. If I don't have the beer, then the pan goes in dry. I do not open the dome until first check for doneness at 185* -…
. Buy choice grade or better.

If you don't like the full caveman method, you can approximate it by placing a small cooking grate on the coals. That will give you 1/4 inch +- space between the meat and the coals, and let you use a spatula instead of tongs.
It depends on the dealer. If they sell a lot of Eggs, have weekend cookouts on their own Eggs, you've got a good chance of them taking a trade-in. If they just have one or two Eggs sitting in the corner so maybe people will ask about them, chances a…
You don't have to add anything for the temp to drop. Opening the dome lets most of the hot air out, and the therm will be reading ambient air temp. After closing the dome it takes a few minutes for the egg to come back to temp, but it will come back…
All of those thing you mentioned can be taken care very easily with just a very little thought.

You can use anything that is being used for decks. In your area redwood is the most common, but red cedar and several hardwoods are also also available.
Redwood and cedar will cost less but require more maintenance than hardwoods.
