  • Blake, I agree with Max. I bought the the delux set up from Chubby for my small and I am very happy with it. The ring also allows you to cook direct with a small wok. I would recommend it. Chubby is also very good to deal with if you have any quest…

  • The last Rutland gasket that I got from Ron Pratt, he recommended a product made by Permatex called Ultra Copper.It can be purchased at any automotive supply store. It worked good for me. Mike Melbourne,Fl.

  • No, just adjust temp back to 225 and continue to cook until internal temp reaches 200. Wrap in aluminum foil and wrap in towel and place in cooler until you are ready to serve.

  • Yes, that is the general application. It is thick enough that you only apply it to the bottom rim. You can go to the Naked Whiz site for a primer on installation of the Rutland gasket. Mike Melbourne, Fl.
  • Pato, Sounds great. Thanks for the info. Mike Melbourne, Fl.
  • Thanks Randy, I was afraid I might have to order a jacuzzi from you. Mike Melbourne Fl

  • Hitch, I'm with you. Way too much for a used plus shipping. They were selling demos with the nest last year at the Fl. eggfest for $320. I guess I'll wait until March. Mike Melbourne, Fl.
  • Hitch, go for it. I had no intention of under cutting you. Just wanted to cover my bases in case you wern't interested for any number of reasons, such as maybe distance to location. My plan is to purchase a demo at the next Fla eggfest im March, but…
  • If hitch isn't interested, I would be if the price is right. Where are you located? Mike Melbourne Fl.
  • I started with the XL and I love it for large cooks. I bought the flip ring and a pan holder from eggcessories, along with an extra grid for more versatility. Having said that, because it is just me and my wife, I am in the market for a small to do …
  • Welcome Dan, You will love the world of egging. I was born and raised not too far from you in Racine. Been in Florida the last 50 years. By the way, your bro Tom is a great guy who can send you some nice xmas gifts for your new egg. Mike Melbourne…

  • Did you use a Guru or stoker assist, or did you do it the old fashion way? MIKE Melbourne, Fl.
  • Once I learned how to collapse the Update Central and Eggfest Central all is good. Thanks for all of your time and hard work. Mike Melbourne, Fl.
  • I was wondering if you used the hard spanish chorizo or the crumbly mexican chorizo which is raw until you cook it. They look good. Mike, Melbourne , Fl.
