  • Re: how not to position the DFMT, makes a good ad for Smokeware!

    He set the daisy wheel and someone else opened and closed the lid (which opened the daisy wheel).
    How is this his incompetence?
    When set correctly, the daisy wheel does not move when the lid is opened. I would have thought that every BGE user is in the habit of placing the wheel correctly every time they use the egg.

    If only he knew how to use his tools, the duck would be fine and he would not be blaming others for his incompetence.
  • Re: PS Woo or KAB?

    Between those two it is not even close. Get the PS Woo and extender.
  • Re: Dos Anclas grilling and bbq salt

    I have never heard of the salt before so I had to look it up. It appears to be just an iodized salt. Here is the ingredient list:

    Salt (Sodium Chloride), Potassium Iodate (INS 917)

    From what I read, the only thing that makes it special is the size of the crystals and the crystals will dissolve during your cook.

    Personally, I would prefer to use a non-iodized salt such as kosher.

  • Re: Large BGE at Sam's Club

    BGE warranty is no different than lots of other companies. Buy from an authorized dealer and you have a warranty. If you do not, there is no warranty. (I hit this recently with an Optima battery. I did not blame Optima, I blamed the seller that misrepresented what they were selling.) So, even if they sold directly to Costco and Sam's Club an egg that did not include the warranty, that is fine. It is the same as selling a specialized egg kit that does not include the daisy wheel so Sam's Club/Costco can sell it for less.

    What makes me upset is that Sam's Club and Costco misrepresent the product and do not make it clear to their customer that the product is missing the manufacturer's warranty. They know that the egg they are selling does not include the manufacturer's warranty. This should be made clear by the Sam's Club/Costco in the product description tag. Costco/Sam's Club should clearly label it as a Big Green Egg without manufacturer warranty.

    Also, I do not rely on the Sam's/Costco warranties. They are only effective while you continue your annual membership. If you cancel, no warranty.

    Cliffs: Shame on Sam's Club and Costco.
