  • Re: Smokeware Cap- Clean it before it gets awful!!

    I don't see the point in them. I stand with my homie @saluki2007

     I have a GE electric motor from my grandmother which is at least 120 years old. It gets light duty in a special tool in my workshop. Recently it quit running. I pulled the brushes and one is about gone, though the other one is 3 times the length. The armature spins easily without much effort to manually turn it. I doubt I would ever find replacement brushes so I wonder - could I cut some of carbon from the long one and attach it someway to the shorter brush? The brushes are closely fitted in brass collars. Thanks for any ideas and experiences!!!
    Paging @johnmitchell for some possible help.

    I will most likely pick up the RTIC when I purchase a larger cooler and the blue is available.  The $180 for the blue Yeti isn't a bad price and it's a great cooler so I can live with my purchase...especially since it's not a cheaper knock off  ;)
    You planning to sell your Eggs for a Komodo Kamado too?
  • Re: Smokeware Cap and Some Nuclear Temps

    @tarheelmatt mine are out in the elements. I kept having rain storms putting my fire out. 

    @Abarnette getting your lump in a ballpark place where you want it (50-75 degrees under) and shutting the lid makes a big difference like Lovelad said. 
    I'm on a covered deck, so that helps. 

    Though, just thinking about this, if running 250°, that top vent isn't open too much, plus the plate setter or indirect item is under the protein. Odd that that much rain comes in to put your fire out though.

    I don't own a SmokeWare cap, and I control temps with the bottom vent.  Can't see the daisy wheel or smokeware cap having much impact if the bottom vent is set right.  Just my experience and $0.02
    Couldn't agree more. I don't see the use of them.
