    we went over the new reggulator and other tops in last week's facebook live show, you can catch it on our ceramic grill store facebook page.  Today, we're doing the new band kit and few other things.

    Does anyone know if the Smobot fits the new DFMT design? @reinhart36

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Meh... Smokeware cap for $35-40 sounds a heck of a lot better

    @NCSmoky thanks for the update. I have smokeware cap but I wouldn’t mind trying out the new cap also.

    I’ve had all 3 types of cap. The daisy wheel? Didn’t like the changing settings every time the dome gets opened. At least it didn’t get stuck all the time.

    The Smokeware cap? You’ve got to keep cleaning it to keep it from being next to impossible to rotate while cold, due to build up inside. Too often, if I’m honest. Love the cover from the elements, hated the fact that it’s prone to being stuck so much.

    The rEGGulator with cap? Best of both, IMHO. Seasoned cast iron, so it’s not a rust bucket instantly. Stays where you set it, no matter how much you open and close the dome. Not showing any signs of getting gummed up yet, and with the rain cap, keeps the elements off the food.

    My smokeware (first version) has never stuck, and I never clean it.  Of course, it never really gets cold here either.

    @jcostom if you do it right, the DFMT setting won't change no matter how many times you open the dome. Just align it so that an imaginary line connecting the two screws is perpendicular to the handle. When you open the dome, it just hangs there.

    BGE has an army of followers who would jump on any new innovative product and, yet they keep phoning it in.  

    Before this cap, BGE was in 3rd place behind Smokeware and KJ.  With all the time BGE took to come up with something better, how do they release a product that still has them in 3rd place??

    This looks better than a smokeware. I currently use a smokeware. It’s not amazing in my opinion. And the kJ kontrol tower loses its paint over time and looks like crap. Not too impressed there either. I like this simple solution. It works. But the daisy wheel is awesome in its own right to be honest. I never understand how people lose their vent setting if they just use it right. Not hard.
