  • Any idea on what temp to cook the venison too?
  • Nearly everyone with a 10cfm chokes the damper down to about 1/3 open to run slow and lows. There is now true need for a 10 cfm. BBQ Guru told me that a 5 cfm would work fine. I've done in the neighborhood of 40+ cooks with mine and it has never …
  • A 5w cfm fan will be just fine for an xl for slow and lows.
  • Get the xl, I can do 2 20# turkeys side by side. I did 2 12# briskets & 2 8# pork shoulders at once with ease. We have a family of 3. The place the xl shines over the large is when you have a small party and want to grill. The large just doesn…
  • If you really want to impress, get your egg stable at 250 or so add smoking smoking wood of your choice. Pull the tenderloin directly out of the fridge, season with seasoning salt and pepper and put in egg. Smoke until temp gets to 110-115, then p…
  • First off, its easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. I was in the same situation, I bought one and cooked on it a few times. Each time I cooked it took a little of the chip off the wifes shoulder. Now she tells everyone how awesome the eg…
  • I own a large Grill Dome and an XL BGE. The BGE has a much more durable finish. My GD had the paint peel off of it. It really chapped my fanny. I did find that a large was a little smaller than I wanted, so when I went looking for a larger grill…
  • You might want to use mill pack black for the adhesive. It can be found on the Internet and fireplace stores. It's good to 1050 degrees F and I personally think the black looks a little nicer than the orange Permatex after oozes out a little.
  • Hilly-Billy, good question. Data sheet wait it would cure and still be flexible. I looked at making a jig to slide around the rim of the base, but I wasn't willing to gamble on how smooth the gasket surface would turn out with just using Mill Pac a…
  • I've got XL and have the Party Q. It works great for slow and lows. I've found that I get my fire near the desired temp then start the Party Q and let it go. I have about 30 hours on my first set of batteries and the green indicator light is stil…
  • I wanted a cast iron grate, but currently have no problem with getting sear marks from my stainless steel grate.
  • A wise man one told that its easier to ask for forgiveness than permission!
  • I've got an XL with a large stone. However, I've not used the stone yet, but it should be plenty for my family of 3.
  • There is no reason to not use the original gasket. I got an XL just before Christmas and have run 60 pounds of charcoal through it and the gasket is just fine. You're not out anything by using the OEM gasket. It is not hard to change it out if it…
  • I can't tell you if there is a difference, but I used 90 pounds of the steakhouse lump over the past year and have been happy with it. I can't tell any difference between it and BGE lump.
  • I love the way that those guys on the internet market the GD is twice as thick as a BGE.  Though they are partially right they are also misleading.  The only place that a GD is twice as thick as a BGE is in the area of the bands where the base meets…
  • I don't think that Grill Dome will be taking to much business with the know paint peeling problem.  This was my first ceramic grill.  I have to say that it cooked as good as my BGE XL that has replaced it, however the customer service IS NOT what pe…
  • Mine ships on Monday
  • Cut the breasts into 1"x1" strips, season with your favorite seasoning, then wrap in bacon and cook until it I medium. They are delicious that way.

  • Thanks for the post, mine is on its way. Been wanting one of these for a year or so, but couldn't bring myself to pay full price. This was a great deal.
  • I've got the Maverick ET-73 and it works like a charm. If I replace it I'll get the Maverick ET-732, because itso probes are rated for higher temps and has a greater remote range. As far as a dutch oven....I don't have one and haven't used one sin…
  • I have both a Grill Dome and an XL Egg. Hands down get the egg. The Grill Dome does not have thicker ceramics. It is only thicker in the band area. People who are saying it its twice a thick are misleading people. Also the paint on the Grill Do…
  • If one is really worried about it, put a little wax paper between the gasket after the grill is cool.  This works like a champ.

  • Wow, mushroom, spinach & cranberries sounds really good.  Never thought of that stuff, I usually lean towards the "plain" way of doing things, this chees and tomato sauce, but I working on expandig my horizons.  I think L might try dried cranber…
  • How about a pork loin?  Cut it in half.  Take one half and put your favorite rub or what ever you want on the outside.  Then take the other half and cut it so that you can roll it out keeping it about 1/2 thick, then cover it with mozzarella cheese …
  • I just about pulled the trigger on a PartyQ, but was concerned with battery life during the winter and the fact that it does not sense an open lid. Looks like a great unit but they should have gave it the ability to have replace the probe as well a …
  • We have a family of 3.  I have a large Grill Dome, but I just got an XL BGE.  The large is fine when doing slow and lows for a family of 6 or more.  I've had 25# of pork on the GD at one time.  If you throw on 8-10 burgers or 6 decent sized steaks, …
