  • That looks to be an early 'clay' BGE>
  • I bought the Chefs Choice for around a hundred dollars, from HSn and couldn't be happier. Mostly I use for cutting meat for sandwichs, good bang for the buck.
  • I also have an EdgePro, takes a little time to set up but I do all my knives at one time. It will be the last one I will ever need, well worth the money. Will never go back to the Chefs Choice electric.
  • I have had a few Foodsaver sealers and they worked pretty good, but when the vaccumn starts not sucking very well, you can't get any parts. I ended up biting the bullet and got a Pro2300, the company that makes the stainless one that Cabelas sells. …
  • As far as shipments go, I ordered the 'new' BGE tent/canopy and they wanted $80 for shipping, to ship it right away. I had the dealer tell them to put it on their next regular shipment, it didn't cost anything for shipping and it was here in a week.
  • It depends on what you are buying. I have gotten some parts free from the 'Mothership'. I just ordered a tent, it was $249.99 at the dealer and the 'Mothership', the difference was the 'Mothership' wanted 50 to 80 dollars shipping and the dealer had…
  • Stevesails, There is a guy in Rochester Hills that sells Wicked Good Lump to restaurants in the area, his number is 248-760-6733 or go to I have bought some and it is a little pricey, I use it for my Low&Slow cooks. You …
  • I would call the "mothership' and I am sure they will send you a replacement door. I have had excellent dealings with them.
  • I have the PRO2300 and it is well worth the money. I have had the other ones, but they only last a short time and parts aren't worth getting. The Pro models and Cabelas are made by the same company. They are made over by Cleveland, Ohio and also on …
  • I live in St. Clair and got mine from Bourlier's in Clinton Twp., he had the best price. The accessories, I got from other places, even the lump. Make sure you purchase from an authorised dealer, for warranty reasons. I was just down to the mothersh…
  • Bruce told me that they are $225. plus shipping.
  • I have got Wicked Good from Rochester and have had Lumber Jack order Cowboy in the 20# bags for me. My son goes to school in Marietta =, Ga. so i have him bring a load home every semester of Royal Oak, from Wallmart. He graduates in June so I will b…
  • You will love that sealer. I have the same one, except it is from the company that makes them for Cabelas. There is no comparison between it and a FoodSaver, other than the price. You can get parts for them, unlike FoodSaver. Buy the bags by the tho…
  • I have had a couple of Food Saver units, they were worth the money but only lasted a couple of years each. Parts were not worth buying and they always said the seal was the problem. I did an indepth search and finally poped for the Pro-2300. It isn'…
  • I am a Millwright by trade, but currently the Safety Person for an automotive plant.
  • I have had the Turbo Grate for awhile and really like it. I have never had any air issues and have gone from low and slow to T-Rexing steaks. I feel it is worth the money.
  • I have the 'tubro grate' and it works fine with the adjustable ris and spider. The 'tubro grate' has never given me any problem with lack of air, well worth the money. There are also other 'EGGers that have made up different variations of the grate,…
  • There is a guy in Rochester Hills, Michigan that sells it. I have bought some from him this past spring. His phone number is 248-760-6733.
  • There are two BGE retailers near Utica, they are both called Bourlier & Sons. One is on 23 mile road, west of I-94 (closest). The other is south of M-59 (20 mi.rd. or Hall rd.)That store has the most stuff. The lump can be gotten there (BGE), Ho…
  • I'm at least 2 hours away, in the town of St. Clair, 12 miles south of Pt. Huron.
  • From Michigan, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit.
  • Neat looking canopys, where would one go to obtain one? How much are they and do they keep the rain out or are they just for shade?
  • I had that happen to my large and the 'mother ship' sent me a nomex gasket free, just give them a call. It was easy to install, using the 3M glue. I just sprayed it into a cup and brushed it on. There are directions for doing this, just type nomex i…
  • I have a large and use an adjustable rig. I buy my ribs at Costco and do 6 slabs at a time flat on the grate and they come out great. When I first put them on I kind of bend them to the contour of the grate and put the largest slabs in the center. I…
  • I am a health and safety rep. for the Chrysler Corp., for how much longer, I don't know.
  • Frank those ribs look great, what was your set up? It looks like you have your platesetter, legs down with a drip pan, then grate on drip pan and then a raised grid.
  • That is what I was looking for the other day. I am going to do some wings and legs using that recipe, other than hanging them on a rack and doing indirect. Do you think they will come out as good?
  • I have both the Orka and OVE gloves and they each have their purpose. At times I use a cheap cotton glove to clean out old ash and move 'cold' accessories around.
  • My gasket came off after a dozen cooks. It came off as clean as could be, the gasket separated from the glue. There were no burn marks at all on the gasket. I called the 'Mothership' and they sent me a Nomex unglued gasket, as requested, free of cha…
  • I also just recieved my gasket from Bruce and he recomended 3-M. Looking at past threads of types of glue used, it seems that the 3-M has more failures than the silicone. I am still trying to decide what glue to use and will probably go with the Per…
