    High Que grate. To me the added convenience of being able to pull out a basket and shake the ash off is not worth the extra cash. The high que has great air flow and it takes a whole 10 seconds to clean ash out of the bottom of the egg. 
    The LBGE is the only size I have where I have had problems getting up to temp from time to time.  The HiQue pretty much resolved that.  As to removing ashes, I stir the lump every start and unless the last one was some very long cook probably go 10 cooks without cleaning it out.  I suspect the basket would concentrate the ash and block the air flow.

  • Re: Pizza Stone...Does it make a difference?

    A stone does make a difference, and even though you are paying for the brand the BGE stone is the nicest one I've found.

     Trying to get used to taking reading glasses on and off all the time.

    I don't think that you ever get use to that. It drives me insane. I can't see off with them on and I can't see up close with them off so it's a steady juggling act. Kind of like the Karate Kid but with glasses instead of wax. Glasses on, glasses off. Now to the food. Great looking grub Doc. 
    I used to do that too... finally got progressive lenses. Took just a few days to get used to them but now I wear them all day long.
    I have worn glasses for 50 years, and bifocals for 20.  It was a lot easier to just put my glasses on in the morning, and take them off at night.

    If you kill all the snakes, get ready for a rodent problem.  The best way to get rid of snakes is to eliminate the food sources for their prey....
    Never kill a snake, venomous or not.  Catch it and relocate.

    Why not keep using it until it completely separates/won't hold lump?  
    Ironically, today I just finished a four-day course in Fatigue/Crack Analysis (this was for metals though).  The instructor has done a lot of consulting on different Air Force and Commercial flight accidents, like 737's that blew their skin off, etc.  Fascinating to listen to!  
    It would probably work on and on, but I paid for the warranty.
