    The covers can actually trap moisture, and make the mold issue worse. Leave the draft door open between cooks and let it breathe a little. You can scrape off the mold with a ball of tinfoil, and kill the rest with fire!

  • Re: xtra lg egg

    It is pretty hard to run out of lump on one cook on an egg. I have cooked a brisket 19 hours on one load of lump in a large. 

    Just load it up with charcoal, mix in some chips or chunks and and cook.
  • Re: Just NOT getting it!

    I have tried cedar planked fish a couple of times. I don't get it either. Tasted like I was chewing on a fence post! Maybe that's just me, but I do not see the attraction.
  • Re: Another Newbie Question-Small versus Mini Max

    I live by myself and have had my SBGE for about 6 years. I had a lot of people try to talk me out of a small, and to go bigger, even the dealer that sold it to me. I am extremely happy with my small. I regularly grill both meat and vegetables at the same time for my meals. I can easily spatchcock a chicken, I have smoked an 8 lb pork butt for 12 hours. IMHO a small can work well for 1 to 3 people. No you are not going to smoke a full packer brisket on a small but that is one of it's few limitations.

    I have not yet seen an MM in person so I cannot really comment on it, but they both have the same 13" grid size. I also have a LBGE for entertaining and I am really happy with it.
