  • Might wrap mine just because...
  • I never cover mine and I have never had an issue. Then again I do not use it for high temp cooks -- only for slow and low with my Auber Instrument PID controller (yea it is kinda cheating I know) ). I wanted to make the cable longer so wrote custome…
  • I just looked up coupons for Ace: this one came up -- ACERMN15J - give it a try and let us know if it works... ($15 off $100) so buy 5 bags and get $15 bucks off... 
  • mb99zz said: Anyone ever order Wicked Good from Ace online and have it shipped to their local store?  That's exactly what I did - I bought 5 bags got $20 off.  Took about a week to get to the store. They called me up and said your charcoal is …
  • @Scottborasjr - Thanks for the help - its awesome!
  • I keep the platesetter in the egg - the stone in the oven (helps regular the heat in my old oven)...
  • Denevan said: I picked up some wicked good from Ace Hardware when they had a "spend $100 save $20 special". Five 22lbs Bags came to just under $85 with free shipping to the store. That works out to 16.99 per 22lbs bag -- not too shabby!  To c…

  • If you are going to cook a lot you need the AR from Ceramic Grill Store.  I have seen pics of ~ 6  butts on an XL: http://www.ceramicgrillstore.com/photo-gallery.html?vsig180_0=6  
  • I added doors to my XL BGE Table    
  • I found a 18" CI today @ "the Parts Biz" for $39. It's $14 to ship but it weights just over 12lbs...
  • Going to call Tom Monday.  Thanks Flemster & scottborasjr.
  • Looking on the site now - the PSWoo is pretty cool - I think Tom needs to make one for the XL.  CGS -- Make an XLPSWoo please!
  • @Flemster I think we are on the same page but here goes nothing... I wanted the AR for multi-level cooks. I want the Woo2 for searing and to put the grid at felt level. I have an XL and I don't think there is a PSWoo for the XL -- just the XL Woo2. …
  • Good Idea @scottborasjr  great point on a CI grid @Flemster Anyone know of any deals on some CI grids? I have a craycort that is pretty awesome -- If I get the AR I think I will get either the Woo2 or the spider and a 18" grid (I do like the presen…
  • Just to close this one out - I heard back from the mother ship - Feet on the XL are a bad idea (really bad and that's why they never sent them with feet). I went and bought a new table nest that works awesome. Going to use the feet for my platesette…
  • I think you are spot in flemster - products are make in USA too so... just hate to buy more if what I have works...
  • CGS sells a 20" grid for the top (for the XL AR) - I think the L BGE is only 18 so anything less than 20" would be fine -- my worry is that 21.5" may be too big and rub up against the inside of the dome wall... may even prevent it from closing or wo…
  • Thanks Tuna -- I had a DIY like the three tiered - ready to move on to the AR.  Heard nothing but great reviews about CGS and customer service
  • Craycort CI grids are awesome - perfect grill marks and great customer service. 
  • Mighty_Quinn said: not sure about any recommendations, but the XL never came with feet like the other sizes did (none do anymore, they want you to buy the table nest). if you got them with the egg, the dealer threw them in for you, its not sup…
  • nolaegghead said: I thought I heard someone say they BGE doesn't recommend using the feet on the XL, I'm thinking there's a structural reason, but I'll defer to anyone who actually knows what they're talking about.  I have a large, and I use th…
  • There are a couple of posts on getting or using a SS band -- so I contacted the point of contacts from the company (Forte) that makes the band and I was told "...research and develop guys that the stainless will expand too much. It can be made but w…
