  • Re: Very Dissappointed!

    Contact any need to take a picture, find the lot number stamped in the base if you can, & submit the receipt.  That's it.  BGE would have told you to do the same--that's what the dealership network is for.

    When your new car breaks down, you don't call the HQ in Detroit and expect them to send you the parts and a go to the ANY dealer and they fix it (doesn't have be the one you bought it from).
  • Re: Thoughts on Smokeware Stainless Cap

    Got to get back to the old forum days......long before smokeware, kick ash, flame boss!  Coffee can and some scrap metal did the trick.  Still have some of my creations.  Love all the new stuff though.

  • Re: Kamados at my local grill dealer


    Mates: $160
    Ash/Gripper: $60
    You tried real hard to make the bge cost as much as the Joe. It won't. Also, many people won't purchase those items, ever. 
    Mates:  $110
    Ash+Gripper:  $35

    Take another $75 off the total number above.  Not sure where he's shopping.
  • Re: Temperature Controllers in Cold Weather

    The only issues I've ever had in extreme temps are the screens.  In the cold, the screens washout and are slow to update/change.  It the extreme heat, they're can be all black and hard to read.  The good news is that you can read everything from your computer, so who needs the screen *if* does get a little "wonky."  I haven't used my FB200 in the cold.  Did fine all summer in the heat though.  I've used my IQ110 & IQ120 in the extreme temps--no issues.  Do give me a call though, will give you the rundown on all three.  Will PM the digits.
  • Re: OT: .22 Rifle Suggestions

    Ruger 10/22 is the standard answer, but there are a million different variations.  I like the Takedown model because the barrel can be taken off in a second and thrown in the included back pack.  Just makes it a lot easier to carry and it's not a total pain to put together like the Henry AR7.  Another cool, but long gone "takedown" / backpack rifle was the Springfield/CZ M6 (.22 on top, .410 on the bottom).

    Henry makes a lot of really nice lever and pump action .22LR's.  If you can find one, the old Remington Model 12C pump actions were so cool......a true "Fudd" gun.
