    Get the cast iron one ... nothing ever, ever beats cast iron.
    You may be right - but in the bounce test I think that neither the ceramic or cast iron will fare as well as a welded, metal AR.

    @Neil_P - why did you disagree with Darian's post? I mean he didn't even post an opinion to disagree with!
  • Re: Clean old egg

    The glassy hard green color on the exterior of a BGE is called glaze. It was applied in liquid form on the already kiln fired dome and base. The liquid is allowed to dry and then the dome and base components are returned to a kiln for firing in excess of 1,800º. Even an uncontrolled "let her rip" fire in a BGE along with its protective fire box and fire ring in place is not going to hurt your egg. But if you don't want to do a clean burn - then that's fine with me! I just want people to realize they are not subjecting their precious BGE to danger in the 1,000 to 1,100 range which an uncontrolled "let her rip" fire will produce. 

    I've said my piece and I'm off to jury duty! Good day, ladies and gents!

    I'm in the high heat, let her rip camp.  Just remember to remove your dome thermometer if you join us!
  • Re: Consumer Reports

    Thanks for the link! I liked the article and think it was a fair and honest assessment. I'm NOT sure that the typical consumer who lives and breaths by what CR says is going to become an egger though - but that's just my tainted view based on the few CR faithfuls I've known over the years.
