So Santa was kind enough to drop off a small to me this year!

This morning everyone was leary of it, by this evening, my youngest was all in, literally


Its kinda like I was cooking a pizza, everyone knows this view, right? Except for the small child in view! IMG_0956.jpg

He says, "Thanks for NOT having a fire in here Dad" IMG_0961.jpg

Guess some of us never grow up huh? But IMHO, that's a good thang! Here's to never growing up, we just get older!IMG_0973.jpg

Merry Christmas to everyone!

    That gasket sure looks different than any I've seen. Do they come that way now? Mike
  • HA! He's my last, yes he's still cute. My older ones aren't so cute anymore. Hope he stays young; I'll teach him about the insides and outs of eggs, just as long as he stays cute :)
  • haha, decided to install a nomex pre-using the egg. VERY easy to clean before installing.... My egg will never be this clean again! I'm a big fan of cleaning my grill right before putting food on it, let the egg crud keep it from rusting!

    they do loose their "CUTE" sadly :( but the up side is in about 25 years he will give you a grandchild and they are even better :)

    Did you make the notches for easier install??
  • Yes I did, not sure how much it helped though. I think deeper and not as long/wide notches would have been better. its glued down now though, so I'm not messing with it.
  • I just got a new small at Thanksgiving and the gasket was the same old one. I guess mine was on the shelf for a while maybe. It is the same old grey one.

  • I haven't fired up my small so I might do the same thing. Where did you get the nomex? They did give my wife an extra gasket when she bought it but it's still the same old one. I wonder if I can get Ford to give me a back up next time I buy one
  • Pies? Is this a Sweeney Todd thing you got going on? :P
