  • Dobie said: Wild ass guess  Thanks. My WAG would be 2 hrs at 350°-375°. Think I'll' do 3" elevated with the platesetter and a drip pan.
  • I don't know what WAG is...
  • Thank you for the reply. I've an LBGE which I just recently resurrected/ brought back from the dead.
  • Well there's several issues here... First, I am always right if I use the word according to its first and most recognized meaning. Some might object to the clear and widely-accepted definition but I  am communicating clearly. And that is, fundament…
  • Thanks. I don't know whether I'm wise or not--you're putting words in my mouth. On the other hand, I suspect there are reasons why I have survived this lone and am in extremely good health. In any case,  the first definition is generally consid…
  • gdenby said: Well, this thread has wandered off into an intersting corner. Just a point on linguistics. Anarchy is not lawlessness. It is a political mode that does not have an "archon," a leader, ruler, captain, 1st citixen, etc. Anarchy for…
  • Thanks. But don't forget...old means I survived. And that my "callow" youth,  naivete, and perhaps even "wilful ignorance,"  are, mostly, in the past.
  • No,  but I suspect from everything I've seen in 7 decades of living...from history, from study...that a cavalier disdain for the rule of law and even authority (esp. a higher authority) is a sure fire recipe for anarchy. In fact, it is very nearly t…
  • What does that even mean? On the face of it, it doesn't even relate to the comment you're supposedly replying to. Every oh-so-predictable issue you cited in your original post is not only a tired and shallow rallying cry for liberals everywhere,…
  • There's no one here  (that I know of) telling any one that. Those kind of characterizations are based on hysteria and sophistry. What I was doing...humorously...is pointing out how the high-minded "morality" of some people only applies when it…
  • Think about it...
  • Thanks. There are companies around that make motorcycle suits...from real leather. I used to know a fellow out of Laramie who became a multi-millionaire making Harley Davidson branded riding gear. But in truth, while it's what we call an …
  • Carolina Q said: BTW, your work looks mighty impressive on your Instagram link! Thank you. As long as I can remember, what I call the "fractious crowd" has been trying to make faux leather that can look and feel and function like …
  • What's the point? Isn't it a little hypocritical to be a vegan/vegetarian and eat food that emulates meat? If you want the taste and mouthfeel of meat...well that's what meat is. It's like feminists wanting to act and function like men. Or peo…
  • Thanks guys...all good...nothing in aluminum angle iron but still a starting place.

  • saluki2007 said: See, I have this room....Never mind. I don't get it--too subtle  (or obscure) for this old shoemaker. 
  • saluki2007 said: So can I get one of these samples... Why would you want a quart of water based latex leather cement?  But hey, work for 50 years in the Trade, create an almost international reputation, and then call one of the companies …
  • HeavyG saidIf a fire ring or bowl cracks and the person was using a Kick Ash Basket should they include that info with their warranty claim? Are they unethical if they don't? Well, that's the point... I don't know about "unethical"--I'm too …
  • Wooderson said: Plate setter has a 3 yr warranty .Just for reference As detailed in the warranty  terms...not against "breakage or cracks from dropping, improper storage, misuse or abuse." [shrug]
  • Well, I did a little digging...I inherited my Egg so I never saw a the warranty terms, until now... According to the terms of the warranty,..at least the way I read it...if you install a Rutland gasket it voids the warranty. If you use lighter …
  • Ladeback69 said: From my experiences with warranty issues is that that if it broke while you had been cooking with it that it is covered.  If you drop it or knock a piece over when is laying against something, that is usually on you from what…
  • I don't know the answer to these question... Does BGE specify in their warranty under which conditions they will honour a claim for breakage? Only if the piece breaks while you're passively looking at it? Only in the event of a hurricane? …
  • fishlessman said: its practically useless for low and slow and roasting temps How do you mean? I just did a small butt (first cook in my completed EGG) ...I wanted to be at 260° to shorten the cook a bit. As with my WSM, I wanted a th…
  • SonVolt said: You guys just leave the foil on permanently? Or replace it every cook? Eventually, the side toward the fire...and so very close to the fire...gets "burnt" and it needs to be replaced. Which raises its own set of questions, …
  • That's a very large drip pan.  What is it? 16"? Is it disposable? Is it commonly available? I can see why you wouldn't feel a need to foil the PS.
  • jtcBoynton said: I never foil the platesetter, but use a foiled drip pan to catch drippings. So do I. In my old WSM I used a big terracotta plant saucer and always had it foiled and always just let the drippings cool overnight. At that p…
  • Good point about "off" flavours.
  • Carolina Q said: @DWFII, you're making this too complicated. I took some more pics... This is what I use now, because I have a platesetter. and here with pizza stone. Stock grid > PS > spacer > stone. Stock grid isn't necessary in th…
  • Ron, I'm not worried about the gasket as far as cooking at, below, or above the gasket level. I mention it only because I think it is awkward to get at food below the gasket level--hard to pick up and so forth. Might just be personal druthers. …
  • Carolina Q said: You need an indirect piece and some way to raise the pizza stone. Doesn't matter how exactly. Be creative. My pizza stone goes on top of this. So, if I understand you correctly, you're not using the earlier rig (your…
