  • Re: Ceramic lid vs. Daisy wheel.....duh!

    So I have been egging for about a year. I have only used my daisy wheel and have left the ceramic lid in the box. At the end of the cook I would just close the daisy wheel up and tightly close the bottom vent to shut down the fire. Has worked fine. Last night I saw the ceramic top and decided to use it. Duh!!! Closed down the fire so much faster and saved a significant amount of lump. I am such an idiot! Sharing just in case any others out there are as slow as me.
    I feel your "stupidity" and raise you one.  I got my first egg over 15 years ago and just threw the ceramic top away. 

     It wasn't until I joined this forum a few months ago, that I knew any different. Gave my old egg to one of my sons and needless to say, I'm using the ceramic top on this one.
