  • Jacks Stack is down on the Plaza. Not to far away. Then you can walk it off around the Plaza shopping!!! Larry
  • it is not covered if you drop it or it falls over when you are moving it. if the dome falls off after you bought it and the dealer assembled, I would talk with the dealer. If you assembled BGE and the dome fell off, no it is not covered. Larry
  • I had fresh Alaskan Salmon 3 weeks ago. It turned out great. I did it Dizzy Pig Style with pure maple syrup and butter. Salmon is great on the egg any way it cooked. Larry
