  • Re: Deck Protection Mats

    I have the Grill Mat and place it in front of either the Mini or the KJ when egging..

    If I remember right, @Nature Boy had an earlier version of the BGE before they added the screen to the draft door.

    Keep the screen on your draft closed and it "should" significantly reduce the risk of flying embers.  The mesh is pretty fine and short of a ceramic failure I wouldn't think there could be a way for an ember to get out - unless it's a freak occurrence when you open up the BGE to take your food out. 

    It probably also goes without saying, but don't use a weedburner or something equally crazy that shoots sparks all over the place if you're not on a surface that can withstand that kind of abuse..I use starter cubes and watch the Kamados like a hawk until I close the dome..I still watch the damn things like crazy while they are on also..
  • Re: Weber Ceramic? Guesses?

    That's IT?  "The Grill of a Lifetime?!!!"

    'I'll pass.  ESPECIALLY at $1,500. 

    I wouldn't buy this even if it was $500.

    @smokybear you just can't tell... i'm using RO and the whole bag looks like the lump pictured above.  cheap and readily available at my home depot, i couldn't be happier with it.
    Yep!  I'm on a bag of RO right now that has chunks bigger than my RW.  Weird and totally inconsistent - pretty much consistently :)
  • Re: Nice Rockwood pieces!

    I'm on my second bag, and while I've had a (very) few pieces that size, I also have a lot of pieces MUCH smaller - as in, smaller than even RO which to this point I had thought was not great when it comes to decent 'sized' lump..

    I know it all burns the same but like to have larger pieces to put at the bottom of my lump pile, to maximize airflow.  (I know - I'm anal when it comes to building my fires..).  So, when you only get a few decent sized pieces per bag, it makes things a lot more difficult..
  • Re: Whatever your thoughts on climate change, this is BS & would cost all of us.

    This is complete and utter nonsense.
    No, it's basic supply and demand.

    Less coal plants = less energy output (aka "supply") while demand stays constant - or, more likely, increases.

    Voila - WAY higher energy costs.  If you don't believe it, just wait.

    BTW..when are you giving up Egging?  You know..it's "for the children and their future".  You're sure pumping out a lot of carbon pollution..that's bad..very, very bad.  Guess you're gonna have to stop Egging now..
