  • Re: Stripped / Spinning Hinge Screw Help

    @pgprescott - it is called a clinch stud, is it not? My MBGE came with an extra set my dealer threw in - reading this post reminded me to go and look in a drawer in my cook shack to see if I could still find them.

    It was a nice cement top that he had the logo laser cut and placed inside.  What was Shatner like as a kid?

    Thanks.  I have know idea what he was like, but I'd like to think he paused...a lot...when speaking... even a kid - and of course chased green cheerleaders.

    He is much older than me - I'm 46.  I just meant I attended the same institution.

    @blasting Trust that is in Montreal and not the urban myth claim of Regina...

     @SMITTYtheSMOKER - fantastic looking table, like the idea of the laser cut inset, very cool. 
  • 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 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.
