  • Re: Gasket

    No question that Ron has the answer with the Rutland, he has helped hundreds of Eggers. Gaskets have come a long way since the felt "rim protectors" installed on the eggs years ago that pushed guys like Ron to come up with an alternative. There are lots of Nomex/Kevlar self stick kits available if you want a super easy install without using Permatex or some other gasket material, not that it's hard to do if you are even slightly handy.
    I like having a gasket on both the dome and base, only because I think the thermo cables benefit from a gasket on both sides. My Nomex is now four years old and will probably replace it next year.   
  • Re: What do you do with your plate setter when it's out of your Egg?

    See - that's what your old gasser is for.....safe place to store a setter, hot or cold and it is the best warming oven around. 
  • Re: Stovepipe for lightning fast startup?

    You know, after a while you learn to just let it do its thing. Been thru the hair dryer, the leaf blower the stove pipe on top and the BBQ Dragon, when all is said and done, 30 seconds of MAP on some second burn lump on the top of the fuel supply, set the DFMT on fully open and the lower vent open, come back in an hour and all is good. ideal for low and slows.  If you want instant cooking, suggest the use of a charcoal chimney, some briquettes and the Weber (Smokey Joe or Kettle). Ready to grill in 15 minutes. 
  • Re: Fired it up.

    Tonight is a Weber night for us as well, nothing like your Weber night mind you, but still a Weber night. Quick burgers on the Smokey Joe...

    EDIT - great looking rig, enjoy!
  • Re: Happy 149th Birthday Canada!

    How about an eggfest in the capital region to celebrate the 150th in 2017!
    That's a capital idea! Not sure if it is still true, but the all Canadian Napoleon might get the nod as more politically correct, although you can't get much more NAFTA friendly than a Canadian site using an American designed product made in Mexico can you?
