  • Used maple wood for smoke. Didn't go traditional with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Made a pot of baked beans, slaw & BBQ pasta salad. Can't wait for the leftovers today.
  • Thanks for all the advice everyone. Throwing it on tomorrow. Can't wait.
  • Thanks for all info. Really looking forward to trying this some weekend. So many things you can do with the egg!
  • My vent sticks like that too. I was kind of hoping that it would slide smoother once I broke it it. Glad to know I am not the only one.
  • Got an email back from the mother ship advising me that for best results I should apply high temp silicone to the top and bottom of the door. Thanks everyone for all the help and advice.
  • I would check with the mother ship to see what type sealant they use. I don't think silicone would take the heat. Good idea. I will email them today.

  • Never mind I think I found my problem. I was not hitting the "< >" icon at the end of the toolbar.
  • Thanks for all the feedback. I was unsure if there would be any benefits doing top vs bottom or doing both of them.
  • I am ordering a new dome from HQ. I will take some photos and post them on here because I want to document the before and after. I was just lucky when I stumbled across the CL ad because it was only 4 hours old and the guy was only 2 miles from my…
  • Just picked up a large locally on CL for $50.00. Dome is cracked and needs a draft door but it was set in a wooden table with wheels so I figure with a little work I should have a sweet set up. Can't wait to be able to cook with it!
  • This is kind of ironic. I just joined this site because I have just purchased my first BGE (large) from someone locally on Craigslist for $50.00. The egg came set in a wooden wheeled table. The dome is cracked and the lower vent door is missing b…
