    I don't, but can take some tomorrow.  And you're right.  17" should give you a perfect fit and you will be fine, but I just like to give it a bit extra just to be safe.  At a minimum, I'd go 16.5" just to ensure you won't get any "rub" later on, for lack of a better word.  Hardly a noticeable difference really.

    Not that it matters.  Seattle will represent the NFC at the Super Bowl this year... and win it... again.
    Certainly the favorite.....however I would root for GB next week if I were you.  Hard.....
  • Re: Can't decide on a finish for my new table.

    I've seen them and am more than comfortable cooking in a table on a paver only.  I recently refinished mine so I took the Egg out and you could not tell anything on the paver or wood after two and a half years of cooking on the Egg an average of four days a week at temps getting upwards of 800* at times.  The dealer and BGE corporate both told me that pavers were fine since they no longer sold the feet when I bought mine. 

    It won't happen, but even if it did, mine sits on a concrete pool deck 20 feet away from a brick house anyway. 

  • Re: OT: Twitter comments by athletes about the Ferguson case

    Lets look at this from the perspective of: your son is Michael Brown.  Are you still ok with the grand jury, based on what you know, not prosecuting him?
    It's indicting him. But Yes

    . . . . Never mind.....guess they're all talking out of their ass about stuff they have no knowledge of as usual. 

    Stick to sports, acting or whatever.  And masses, don't think because someone can shoot hoops or makes $20M a film makes them some kind of expert on social ills. 

    I'm wondering about the 'outrage' expressed here.  How are these athletes' expression of opinion on Twitter any different than your and my expressions of same on the BGE site's forum?

    Does owning an Egg make one "some kind of expert on social ills"?


    Hard to say and is probably more on a case by case basis.  However I'd defer to your run of the mill Egg owner over some actor or sports star in general.  But let me know when one of us gets millions of followers, is seen by millions making our views known while being interviewed by Oprah, makes our political points while hosting the Grammys, or even gets to speak in front of the UN about some issue of concern, all because he/she owns an Egg.
