    No that is not a good price! main thing is the lifetime warranty does not transfer.

    I saw @Lit complaint about the BGE folding grate. That complaint is common, but it is incorrect! 

    With all due respect Ron, what makes your opinion on a product "correct" over another?
    I own a folding grate but would never purchase another. Knowing what I know now I would rather use a Woo or a second grid with 3 bolts as legs. This lets me remove it to get to the lower grate as well as easily move the cooking grid 180 degrees and not shift the lower.
    The quality of the BGE folding grate also depends on the fabrication and fitting of all the wire bends. If they are off it does not fit well.
    I'm glad you like yours but don't see that it gives you the right to call out another opinion as "incorrect". IMO

    On another note. With your browser open on your MAC, hold down the "command" key and press the "+" or "-" key to enlarge the text/page in your browser. Really helps with smaller text on forums and such.
    WOW - I sure didn't expect that, Darian! I've seen and heard people try to just fold the legs out and expect it to stand without springing it tight and then it falls. When I read @Lit complaint about it I just offered my solution as a suggestion. I hardly think that was calling someone out.

  • Re: Ouch--Bad ending for one Egg

    I guess it was the cracked pavement or that drain. Pull your egg, don't push, homies.

    I preach that "pull not push" all the time, but with that picture where is the nest? OTOH it definitely appears to have gone over backwards implying a push over accident!
  • Re: it's Fall - time for Snicker-Doodle Apples

    Do you eat it right out of the foil or do you let it cool off, solidify, then eat. ?
    Since the apple is cut in half horizontally (stem on top) and then the top is cored so as to keep the bottom skin in tact then that bottom becomes a vessel, to hold much of the melted Snicker and baked apple. Just the same it is gooey, messy and by keeping it in the foil it stays hot. I have never had one cold - just hot or at least by the time I get to mine a bit cooled down!
