  • biglabmaggie,[p]I had the same problem. I noticed that one area (close to bottom vent, R/H side) was not getting as hot - less fire - very noticable when you look. Have no idea as to why it was doing this. Egg was cleaned out, etc. And I have tw…

  • crkscrw, good choice on the cooking tool. You won't be disappointed.[p]Just a word of caution: for me the hardest thing was figuring out how to control the temp - vent openings, etc. Takes a bit of playing with to get comfortable with keeping tem…

  • Marine Cook, wow - looks great. Slice that baby open and let's see....ummmmm/[p]LVM
  • Alan P, I definately season (and re-season) all my DO's and cast fry pan's. Thought about seasoning the grate but figured that since it will be at the butt end of a volcano (TRex time, etc) there was not much point in doing so. Besides, the air he…

  • jake42, you had sticky residue left because you 1) used to much oil, or 2) did not have it hot enough.[p]I would not worry too much about the seasoning for a cooking grate. Cooking utensils - such as cast iron dutch ovens and fry pans / grids - ye…
  • Marine Cook, I beg to differ.[p]Correct your statement to read "butts and brisket", and we be homies. lol[p]Funny thing - the wife just asked me what I had in mind for Christmas. Already have two large one's - just might look into a small one![p]H…
