  • Re: Getting my large egg to 500 or 600 and keeping it there

    This is how I do it, start the fire with both top &. bottom wide open, when within 50 degrees of target temp start closing top vent and see what the change has done in 15 minutes, then open or close as needed. The key for me is waiting to see what the temp does and not over adjusting. I'm confused about cremating steaks! sounds like you are cooking them to time and not temp, I can cook a steak at 700 and not cremate it, but I do steaks at 450 ish. When I do steaks on my Mini I leave both vents wide open and it's 500 + . Take a day that you have time and just load up the egg with lump and work on temp control without cooking food, and you make notes as to vent settings for different temps, if you get the egg to hot it's very hard to get the temp back down so you need to catch it on the rise and stop it. hope this helps.

    It would be helpful if everyone would just kind of back off on this. The dealer is very reputable and goes overboard to satisfy a customer......I know this and I'm the one that got this dealership started, so their reputation is quite good; trust me on this! This will be taken care of, the distributor makes the dealer go through the process by the book. 
    I live about an hour south so I am guessing the same distributor. When I emailed my cracked XL base pic to Roswell Hardware I got a response in under 5 minutes that I could pick up my new base. This is an obvious issue here that the OP was told this is their issue since they took the egg home. With all the money HH makes from this event they should have covered it without warranty approval even if they have to write it off in the end. 
    Just wondering how you know how much money HH made on the fest? In fact do you really have any idea how much any BGE dealer makes on any egg sale? I'm talking about hard facts here, just for arguments sake lets say 10% and in the business world 10% after all expense's involved 10% is a very good profit for any business. So if the end price of a large egg is $800.00 10% is $80.00. So are they really making a killing and walking away from the problem I don't think so, will it take some time to get the customer a replacement dome yes it will but the new free dome will arrive and all will be well. I'm an Electrical Contractor and have for many years lived with people thinking that I'm making a killing just because I charge $125.00 for the first hour service call, I challenge anyone to go get all the insurance, trucks, office space, phone service, maintenance on trucks/tool and equipment, electric for the office, phone service, gas for the trucks, the customers that some times just don't pay! Yes I make money but a killing well not so much. I would be very surprised if they were making 10% in the end after the cost of business. Stay tuned for updates and a happy ending.
