  • 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!
  • Re: Have been ask about sending a Mini to the troops overseas.

    Mick - I know I contributed money back then and will again this time when asked. I will also contribute a Rutland replacement gasket and go buy a tube of Permatex adhesive to send along as well. 
  • Re: Need some input on adding Small to table

    Long story short I started to build a table for my large egg before I ever thought about getting a second egg.  Life got in the way and never finished it.  I'm now looking to finish it, but want to add my small egg to the table.  I have plenty of room in the table to add it.  My thought is to take the nest the small is currently sitting it and taking the wheels off.  I would then bolt the nest to the table.  This would allow the egg to be lifted up high enough to be roughly the same height as the large and at the same time creating an air gap.  Any one see a problem with this?  Here is a picture of the table.  I have since put a first layer of epoxy and cut the hole for the large.



    Here's my L and S set up. What I did for a riser was to make it into the carcass for a drawer to hold some tools! 



  • Re: How many racks of ribs can I get on a large?

    I've never understood the aversion to cutting a rack - or all your racks in half when cooking them on an egg. I find mine cook more uniformly due to better placement capabilities. Surely you don't serve every person a full rack on an oblong platter do you?  =)
  • Re: Royal Oak on sale @Home Depot three more days.

    Got 5 today out of the middle of a pallet like I prefer to do, and did my usual grip, pat down and turn listening for the telltale tinkle of moving, shifting tiny pieces. These bags were solid! Though I didn't need to I went ahead and opened a bag for tonight's cook. I could not believe how many huge chunks there were! While some here prefer big chunks of lump I don't. Me thinks I will be sorting these bags out so as to whack the big chunks with a sledge hammer to downsize!
