  • I took a good look at that the other day. The cart looked ok and the cooker was not impressive. Make sure you have the measurements for the egg before you buy one...if you ever can. I noticed that the cart had some welded on brackets that hold th…
  • Hey AustinEgger. You stole my handle. The only difference is I have a space in mine. :ohmy:
  • I just use a regular big plastic dust pan. Of course I never remove hot ash, but never really needed to.
  • If you have an extra grid then take some bolts and set it up for a 2 tier cook and get some fire bricks or the pizza stone and put it on the first level. You can rig it up pretty quick if you can find a store to get the fire bricks.
  • That's what I get and about what I pay in my neck of the woods.
  • I've always used the PS legs up with the grid on top and the pizza stone on top of that. I have never had a problem with an uneven cooked crust.
  • I know the Plano one will be coming up, but not sure what the date is or if it has definitely been set.
  • My preferred method is parchment paper. We put the dough on the parchment paper and tear off 3 out of the 4 corners so that there isn't much sticking out. I like one corner so I can grab it. I typically put on just the dough for around 2 minutes,…
  • You could always run a chain through the top opening and have it come out through the lower vent and lock it up that way. Of course you would have to wait for it to cool off before you ran eveything and you would have to remove the grid and grate, …
  • Jeep did it in 2008 and dodge did it in 2010. I am sure there have been others. With those 2 examples, I think they just wanted to spur on sales and it seemed to work. Both were temporary and did not last long.
  • Where did you get that? How much was it? Do have you to take it on and off everytime you use it or is it on the outside of the garage door when it goes up and down? I have a very similiar set up and spend a lot of time cooking and watching tv in …
  • I always use the split bricks for my raised grid. It is nice and cheap, especially at around $1.50 a split brick (around my part of town). The only disadvantage is they can be rocky when you are putting food on and off of the grid. My original gr…
  • Yes, it helps. I think they are worth it if you move it around your house a lot. I was going to buy one, but I take my large traveling a good bit and didn't like the idea of completely unbolting it every time. I wish they had some kind of quick r…
  • You have a couple of options. 1. Buy a smaller egg. I have a large and travel with it a lot, but got tired of constantly lugging it around. I now have a mini for the smaller camping gatherings. 2. Use the XL. At 205 lbs. it is obviously very heavy…
  • Have you done a full clean out of ash recently? Whenever mine gets slugish to get to temperature, I take out the fire ring, firebox and grate and shop vac all of the ashes at the bottom. If you haven't done this in a while then all of that ash can…
  • Yep, I've tried some of the free range turkeys and have not been impressed at all. All of the free range turkeys that I have tried have been tougher. Almost a completely different animal....
  • Yep, have had them in all of my bags. Just be happy that is all you have. Some people have posted some interesting finds in theirs. :laugh:
  • I don't think the mini woo will fit your rig. It will only fit rigs that use a 10" diameter grid. Make sure that you take the measurements. If you have a 9.5" grid then it will not fit.
  • I would highly recommend it. Even the non-crawfish eaters love it. I love using a very thin crust and loading it up with the toppings. Let me know if you have any questions.
  • Never done crawfish on the egg, but I love crawfish pizza. Take you some crawfish tails, potatoes, shrimp, sausage, and corn that you boil and put them on your favorite dough with some white/alfredo sauce! My favorite pizza.
  • Yeah, free stuff goes quick! Looked like an older large, although not a BGE. Cracked fire ring and a small rolling nest of sorts. Looked to be a fun rehab project, but I have enough projects already :laugh:
  • Definitely call Mickey! He did a heck of a job...along with others!
  • It's interesting. The SS is indeed a 9.5". I ordered a regular black one and I just got it about 2 weeks ago. It is a 10". My guess along with a few others is that maybe the mock up was of the old one and on accident. Either way, it sounds like …
  • I will be traveling a lot and won't be able to take both of my eggs, so I would not be able to cook them on the large before the mini :( Really just wanted to see if anyone has done it and how hard/easy it was.
  • Congrats! That would be my perfect set up. I have the large and the mini and am looking forward to a small! :laugh:
  • My local dealer is charging $799 as well.
  • Hey Mickey, I've been using it on the mini too! I just use it on a low flow setting. The handle sure gets hot quickly though. I usually have to put on a glove to lower the lid :laugh:
  • I've used a MAPP torch a couple of times but the flame that I was using wasn't very wide, so it took me longer than the width of the flame from the weedburner. I haven't seen anything negative from using the weedburner except that you have to be ca…
  • I have the one from harbor freight. I love it! I have been using it for a little less than a year. Mine has the push button ignitor and the turbo lever. Don't ever hit the turbo when you are lighting the egg I believe they had a coupon on the i…
  • The best way for the steaks and ribs would be to shut off the egg completely after the steaks and then probably relite or rearrange what you are cooking, or get another egg I have been taking my large egg traveling a good amout recently. It amazes…
