  • T&G would be great, but the tolerances are going to be a lot tighter, simply beveling the top out on a 30/45 angle and beveling the bottom in at the same angle might be an easier solution. would require enoough positive pressure to push the air…
  • I've noticed a moon rock increase in my walmart RO bags. I've had 3 in the last 4 bags, each about the size of golf ball. Not a big deal to me. Treat them like mini plate setters, they're another thermal mass that heats up and maintains its temp …
  • PapaDoug wrote: Any problem using your egg inside a Florida room or Spring porch? Can you get it up to searing temp? Looks like a screened in porch to me, which is what i've got. Nothing but screen about 12 feet above my head when i cook,…
  • Looks good! i've got a similar stainless setup up, but with 1 solid shelf vs. 2 wire ones. One word of caution is that I left my daisy top on the stainless and it left a nice rust ring, which i still haven't completely eliminated. I keep my dai…
  • whiz, i just voted and experienced the same thing. the only way to escape was to press the taboo 'back button'. top left of the page had the word 'home' but it was not a hyperlink, just text.
  • i've got the same log-in problem, every time i close IE, it loses my log-in info, even if i click the button to "remember me". I don't think its a cookie setting on my end, because i'm remembered at other forums and web pages that i visit.
  • Orca's are silicone oven mitts. good for up to 500F and go in the dishwasher to be cleaned when they get full of grease. Downside is they limit your dexterity, so they take some time to get used to to handle grabbing smaller stuff.
  • Gadgetman, Are those simple ceramic tiles under the egg? I'm planning an outdoor kitchen and am looking for a more elegant solution than a paving stone. Those tiles look great visually, and the replacement cost if/when they crack won't hurt.[p]
  • Jinny Beyer, I've had my egg sweat out the brown water after its been stuck in the rain. Once you burn it off and use your egg regularly, you shouldn't have a problem.
  • vick, I fill up my firebox then let it mound to the top of the fire ring for my "full load" on my large. I've never had a problem with fuel shortage.
  • Haggis, definitely agree on all points, and you can see how lousy it looks when you don't clean it regularly! to add to that list are the fact that its not magnetic (polder holder) and it dents when you accidently touch the side of a searing hot D…
  • jerseymatt, here's what i rigged up. basic stainless table from your restaurant supply store (30x60) with a plasma torch to cut the hole. New table is around $200 and $30 to torch the hole. used, you can find them for around $80. It gets the…

  • BBQDan,[p]I have the same problem when trying to buy a car. Every dealer is trying to sell me on their service, while they're all telling me that their cars are so reliable, so why do i need all this service? Then on top of that, they hate it when…
  • gettingeggcited, you can go from 800+ to 400 in 20 minutes with just vent control. Gives a TRex steak a chance to rest and redistribute juices. i usually throw foil wrapped potatoes on around the ring once i'm done searing, bake away for 20 minu…
  • gettingeggcited, 1) it can be a little annoying if you've got 10 burgers going on a lower grill, getting the one at the 6 o-clock position requires a backhand approach. As others have mentioned you can do a raised grid solution to avoid this.[p]2)…
  • Midnight Smoker, maybe its calling it "barbequing" at those temps.
  • caboose,[p]get one sheet and cut it in half, you only move 4' at a time vs. 8' . you'll move a 4'x4' piece a whole lot faster than you will a 4'x8' that you'll get the job done quicker. and you'll spend half as much too.
  • Keith W., I just moved to Winter Garden and was in the same boat as you for finding a deler. in the West Orlando area, the 3 locations which I have found that are egg dealers are: Pinch-A-Penny Apopka Pinch-A-Penny Dr. Phillips Florida Pool Cent…
  • omba, I see it more of you wasting the chicken on the gasser, as you'll get a flavorless chunk of flesh. You're spending a lot more on the bird than you are on the lump, so you might as well enjoy it. now if you want a return on investment for ge…

  • The Naked Whiz, Is that table for the old hinge, or take into account the extra space needed for the spring hinge??
