    Morning all.  

    I tried the smoked ice and smoked salt in a ceasar, which is the Canadian version of a bloody mary.  (recipe below)  It was terrific and I will definitly be making smoked ice cubes whenever I plan to have ceasars.  Even just the smell when you take a sip is great.

    I did buy some bourbon and tried it out as well.  Woodford is what I got since my options were limited at the grocery store I was at.  I liked it, but I'm not normally a bourbon drinker (don't hold that against me).  Ya'll have your likes and dislikes on bourbon - kinda like lump.  Try it yourself and see, but I'll definitely say in the ceasar it was a winner.

    Thanks @blasting. The Bloody Mary idea is a winner. I am sure that if you aren't used to drinking bourbon or scotch it takes some getting used to. (acquired taste)
    I think this is the first time any of my ideas have been awarded !! I gotta go smoke some Ice now to see if it really does taste good.  Have my own question though.....Won't I put my lump out? :)

    Sounds interesting, what about putting it in a Bloody Mary?
  • Warranty Replacement Egg Question

    A few weeks ago I noticed a crack that extended from the base up along the side.  My dealer promptly dealt with the matter.  Last week I received a warranty replacement bottom half of my egg.   To my surprise the replacement came complete with a stainless door and new gasket.  Great service from my Dealer and BGE is much appreciated.  This is the reason I will always support my small dealer vs some of the chains that are popping up carrying BGE.

    So my question pertains to the new Stainless door.  It seems to slide very easy compared to my previous egg, it has some play to it as well.  I have noticed some difficulty in dialing in temps as a result.  The door and mesh seems to be quite loose in the channel of the frame resulting in what seems to me, more flow around the perimeter.  

    Has anyone ever crimped the channels of the lower door a bit in effort to tighten up the tension of the vent and door?

    Poolside, the Egg Dealer in Little Canada, MN (just North of St Paul) has one in September.  They also have a Rib contest event as well.
