  • I also just recieved my gasket from Bruce and he recomended 3-M. Looking at past threads of types of glue used, it seems that the 3-M has more failures than the silicone. I am still trying to decide what glue to use and will probably go with the Per…
  • Rod you should be a Safety person. I just got done down loading the MSDS sheets for both products. I was curious as to why most people didn't use silicone, it is used around the house for all kinds of things. I don't think it would be very hard to r…
  • That was it, works like a charm. Thanks and Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I would think you would be alright, if you had some sort of ventilation. You would need to set up a fan to give the garage 'x' amount of air changes per hour. Where you get into trouble is when there air not moving, 'bad' air being replaced by 'good…
  • I am 'Safetyman' and I live in St. Clair, Michigan, it is about 50 miles northeast of Detroit and borders Canada on the St. Clair River. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all 'EGGheads'.
  • I live in a small town 50 miles N.E. of Detroit. The St. Clair river separates us from Canada.
  • I just recieved my 'rig', it included the adjustable unit, oval grate, spider and the cross-bars.
  • I have the same table and finished mine the same way Jeffersoian did his, from the advice of fellow 'EGGHEADS'. It looks beautiful and the six coats of spar urethane will make easier to keep clean.
  • It is very easy to put together, going by the inclosed instructions. To me, being a new owner, I would say the most important item would be to do the 'dollar' test. To make sure your top fits flat on the bottom, also making sure your bolts, on the r…
  • I would like to also thank him for great service on my adjustible rig. Now I have to find time to use it. I will be ordering more products in the future.
  • On the BGE large cypress table I used 1 1/4" fire bricks, they are 4 1/2 x 9, it took 8 of them. I put the BGE feet under the 'Egg' and set the 'Egg' on the fire brick. It seems to work very good and they were only $10.
  • I bought the cypress table, reason being I got it for $265, Due to not having any time to build one. If I had it to do over again I would build one. I have all the power tools to do it and I would make more storage area. I would also make it so I ha…
  • I know what you mean about over kill, it goes hand and hand with my job. I like doing things right the first time.
  • Thanks, ZippyLip, for the feed back. It looks like you used a patio stone (cement), does this hold up to the heat? I had heard that they tend to break up, that fire brick is what should be used. I figured fire brick was a little 'over kill', especia…
  • I bought mine without ever tasting food off of a BGE. A guy I know told me he loved his, so I started researching the 'egg' and ran into this forum. I have been following this forum for some time and finally bought a large. I haven't cooked on it ye…
  • Thanks FlaPoolman, that is what I thought. I didn't see any reason to assemble it outside of the table and then lift the whole thing up into the table. Definately a NO NO, lifting by the bands. From what I have read it looks like fire brick is the b…
  • Retired Railroader is correct. You can saw them off with a hack saw/power saws-all or use a cutting wheel on a Matabo type grinder. You will be wasting your time with a cutting tourch, it would be a total mess.
  • Sounds like me but, I have wanted this for a long time and I will probably put on 6 coats and lightly sand the whole table. The winters are kind of tough here in Michigan and I live close to the water so it makes it kind of damp, also. Your table lo…
  • Thanks for the information. That is the product I was thinking of using, is that oil base?
  • Brad, what color stain did you use on the table, it looks great!
  • Thanks Pat, That is what I will be using. It seems like being a 'EggHead' you need to have a camera on your belt, next to the pager and cell phone. :laugh:
  • Pat, was that oil or water base spar urethane and was it hard to apply without leaving brush marks. It's unbelieveable how well it turned out.
  • FlaPoolman, that table is beautiful, it looks like the finish is 1/4'' thick. Is that a cypress table?
  • Mostly what I wanted out of the DigiQ, was to moniter my meat temp. without opening the lid. Instead of buying just a remote temp. probe, I figured I would get the good unit right away.
  • That is the one other than having a stainless vent on it. Thanks one and all for the information, I'll have to wait and see how I come out in the bidding process.
  • I'm in Michigan and there aren't any 'fests that close, Chicago area being the closest.My son goes to college at Life University in Marrietta, Ga. and we were thinking of going to the Eggtoberfest and get one there, it wasn't too cost effective.
  • It's on e-bay and it is a large and has a table. I bid $300 for it. It looked like it was greener in color but it has the handle like is on yours. I didn't think about it being clay, till after I bid on it. I didn't know when they quit making the ha…
