Help Smoked some ribs last night and closed up the XL Egg. This AM I was cleaning up putting racks away and stuff and the coals and wood were still smoking. Everything was sealed up as normal. Only thought I had is that I used more wood to finish he bag and dumped the rest of my lump (dust) in the egg. I put a rag under the ceramic top to try to get a netter seal. Any other thoughts?

  • Thank for that tip. It has not happened since. I am guessing that the fire was banked as someone else suggested. My bottom vent is a little stiff (screen and door slide together) I will lubricate them. I under stand your silicone fix but if the door…
  • My XL is the same. At first I thought it was a defect, however thinking about it I figured that the surface of the egg is curved and the stainless is straight. If it were installed straight, there would be space between the stainless and the egg. No…
  • Max With the woo on top of the fire ring the top of the stone is 3 inches above the felt. With the woo2  in the notches of the fire ring it is 2 inches. Doc if you see this what height is your stone at?Dave
  • Thanks for the arrangement. Just before Xmas I ordered the XL Woo2 Rig Combo. Picked up the XL Stone today. Got home and then realized to get your configuration I also needed the PS which I did not have.  So, I put the woo and 17 inch stone in it's …
  • Doc. What is the Hw I see in pic 2 called pull the parchment? Looks like it is a woo with 24 inch grate and 24 inch stone? What is under the grate?
  • Interesting. I had never thought of the size of the peel. I was only thinking of cooking individual pizzas or loafs of bread is probally why. However that is good information. Question to nolaegghead. I do not understand "make the belt" ?
  • Thanks for the information. 
  • Xl egg came home today. Took major part of the afternoon to get it assembled. I was looking for some warranty information and a how to use book 
  • Duganboy said: How come you got that gasser as your picture.  Sorta like having your ex wife's picture on your desk. It's kind of like you had a mutual agreed upon divorce and you are still together but only for the kids. Time to mov…
  • Great stuff! Thanks. Woo2 seems like the way to go along with the spider and the 17 inch stone. Actually the dealer is giving me either the plate setter or it's value in other arrangements. Hence I picked the 1/2 moon baking stone and the Xl 1/2 cas…
  • Really nice. Like it better than any other I have seen. What size egg is it for? Don't forget to share pictures with it finished , egg installed (And of course some hunks of meat for dressing)Dave
  • Cons COST ! But find and buy on sale at Macys etc. 
  • jjmills said: I was also looking at Henckels knives.  Any one with pros cons on these? They are Great Knifes I have more than a few! Also look at Wustoff. Both are german, Stainless holds an edge longer than plain steel but plain stee…
