I haven't done much grilling this summer or posting. I took July off for a bike ride to Newfoundland to BC and everything in between. When I got home, I was thinking I got to smoke the 10 lb pork belly I have but I don't have a way to slice it. I turned to Craigslist for a decent used slicer. I saw a used Hobart 1712 with power feed for $200. It looked like the guards were missing and it was listed as everything working but not so good. After 2 weeks of slow replies to emails, they said they want $65 to just get it out of there. A 30 minute drive, I found the slicer had all the guards and they were removed for the photos. The motor sounded good so I got it. After taking it apart some, I found they ran it low on oil (yes, they have an oil pump) and trashed a brass $39.00 gear only. I cleaned it a bit, put the new gear in it and putting it back together. I want to put a new cord on it and hopefully I can find one at my local hardware store. Otherwise it's done. Here are a few photos as I've been going. Also a photo of what it looked like when I got it.
My new Windows 10 browser won't let me select a category. Not sure how many people overlook "off topic" categories so I'll repeat my post in the general section just in case.
I've had my Sroker controller for a few years now. It's the 1st gen of the Wi-Fi version. Over time, I've added two more BGE and was able to add another fan and pit temp easily without buying more controllers (One of the main reasons for choosing Stoker over other brands). Memorial weekend, I was doing a 18 lb brisket on one egg, 4 racks of ribs on another egg and a 10 lb pork shoulder on my mini-max. All was good until my stoker quit working.
I emailed them and told them what happened and I was instructed to mail in my stoker. I also included my 3 fans and 3 pit probes. After their review, they found a few plugs to be defective, re-flashed the firmware and cleared the database. They shipped everything back at no charge and also added color rings to my probes and fans.
Great service! Thanks again Rocks.
I need to make a new table for the growing egg family but for now, here is mine.
