  • Cool, thats kinda what I figured. Thanks folks!
  • thanks guys, anyone have any suggestions with the dremel?
  • 5 years on the same gasket? wow :woohoo:
  • so was the nut supposed top tighten at all? i reset it in boiling water, but the nut didnt tighten at all. thanks
  • thanks all. i think ill try the quick fix tonight. naturally the guy with the egg gets put in charge of the tailgate bbq for this weekend
  • it does spin pretty easy by hand, but i like the boiling water idea. how much is a new one and is it as simple as inserting it back into the hole? i might just get a new one.
  • yeah, i kinda figured it wouldnt work, just looked like an easy way out.
    in Table Idea Comment by jb1020 June 2009
  • i was thinking more like appatizers. ive done butts, but we already have the burger meat. i was thinking wings, or soemthing kinda like that, just to nibble on while the burgers cook.
    in suggestions? Comment by jb1020 May 2009

  • i went with the ts8000 at lowes. it was $46 which was a little more than i thought it would be but man was it nice. had the lump up and going in no time. i kinda feel like a sucker for going thru 2 boxes of the egg fire starters.
  • i still cant find them searching benzomatic. of well lowes and homedepot are both on the way home. thanks for the help eggers
  • a search on turns up no results for "mapp torch"
  • i saw a picture of the weed burner on another thread....i used to glaze hams in high school with one of those. haha. my back deck isnt the biggest so i'd rather not have a propane tank out all the time. if i can get 70 lights out of an $8 bottle i…
  • wow, id say thats cost efficiency at its best. guess ill be stopping at homedepot on the way home. any suggestions or are there different types of these torches? im clueless if you cant tell.

  • thanks, i think that was it actually. apparently adding some lump did the trick too. 11:30 got home and the dome was reading 250 on the dot. i took the internal temp and it was at 192. it was looking good, thanks for the info.
  • is that an OBS next to the BGE? i had my cash in hand about to buy an OBS, chickened out and bought the BGE the next day
  • alright, so i fired up the egg this morning about 5:30. i let it get pretty hot for about 30 minutes. then i got it to about 300. i was shooting for 250. about 6:45 i got it to 250 right on the nose, got ready for work and it was still spot on a…
  • new guy here, just thought i had to get in on the convo.....Go Dawgs!
  • thanks folks, will update!
  • i stand completely corrected. i got home and checked and there certianly is a screw. tod you, dumb question. but thanks for the replies. i appreciate it.
