  • Ash pan and ash too are nice to have. Makes getting ash out easy. V rack for ribs is a necessity for more than 1 rack. If doing pizza, I would add a infrared thermometer. BGE has one. I like one with a 6:1 spot and a laser. Also get a pizza stone,…
  • I would suggest getting a infrared thermometer. Getting the stone to a consistent temperature greatly helps the consistency of the fina product. BGE has one these days. I like one with a 6:1 spot. We use a stone temperature of 500, but others will g…
  • Thanks. I give it a try.
  • Thanks. I give it a try.
  • I stopped using it because it is just too smokey. My local source said he has heard that from a lot of people. He says Wicked Good just cannot source the wood they want. Back to BGE for me. I have not located a local source of RO American - north of…
  • Dizzy Pig Pineappele Head is outstanding - nice combination of sweet and hot.
  • If it is in the direct sun, then a cover can help a lot. Small money to keep it looking like new.
  • Yes. Also use a cover and it will last a lot longer.
  • I went through the "too smokey" routine and finally realized that the type of lump is a big factor. I used Wicked Good Weekend Warrior for a while and it is a great lump but it way to smokey for me. When I want little or no smokey taste I use Whole …
  • Will a XL cover fit? It is wider and slightly longer than the L cover. I use a XL on my oversized table for my large egg.
  • Complete Heat in Nashua - small place but very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. They are at the end of the Nashua Airport runway, between exit 6 and 7.
  • Agree with other posters. One addition - Swamp Venom in potato salad - gives it a nice kick. I also want to try it in various soups. Raising the Steak - steak of course Pineapple Head - grilled pineapple and other fruits, although be careful o…
  • Thanks. I thought about adding wheels, but decided I would move it so seldom that I did not need them. I'll probably move it once every 2 years to do the deck. Two of us can move it and with four people it is trivial. The flange on the wheels is sli…

  • Cowboy has too many small pieces and dust for me. Full Circle has been much better and is priced well. Wicked Good Weekend Warrior is my favorite by far. It reminds me of the charooal I grew up with as a kid in the 50's. It actually looks like…

    in BGE LUMP?? Comment by dtc May 2010
  • I piled up short 2x4s from the bottom stone up to the bottom of the top supports. Two of us picked the egg up (empty, but still with top on) and put it in the hole on top of the 2x4s. Then we picked the egg up slightly while a 3rd person removed a 2…
  • I was a little worrried about doing it, but it was pretty easy. Three people did the job. I took the inside parts out of the egg, but left the top on. I lined the hole with duct tap to prevent scratching, just in case, but it was not really needed. …

  • That is the plan. I made it to the extra large table dimensions so I could keep it covered with a standard BGE cover.

  • This is a link to an on-line picture re-sizing tool that has an option for re-sizing pictures specifically for avatars. Very easy to use. Just pick Make Avatar from the options on the left. Create Avatar

  • Thanks. My top is 30"x60" and cost less than $400. It was a remnant, which cut the price down considerably. The granite itself was $250 and cutting the hole was $100. The rest was for polishing. The hole they cut out is under the egg, with feet for …
