  • Re: Removing Lid from XL BGE

    I used a nomex. So far so good. I figure that I'll fry one per year. The way I see it, I spent more money and time on my gasser each year than I will on a new gasket.
  • Re: napkin and oil trick was messy

    I like it. Thanks for the tip.
  • Re: Confession Time: How much has the BGE really cost you?

    If I include lump, probably around $5000 because I've done 3 bulk buys at $1000 each. Those were split among other eggers.
  • Re: OT - Ice Storm Coming - Generator Question For The Pro's

    If you are trying to feed it through your breaker panel just make sure you turn the main breaker off. You don't want to back feed any electricity back into the downed lines that the crews could get lit up by.
    If you are going to back feed, you have to turn the main breaker off but this will not prevent juice from going out to the poles. If you don't turn off the main and the power comes back on, you'll overload your panel and fry it. Electricity can flow back to the lines over the neutral wires. 
  • Re: Humphrey Charcoal in Harrisburg, PA

    If you can drive to the Humphrey facilities in Brookville, Pa, you can purchase a pallet for ~ $10 per 20lb bag.  I make the trip once a year and I'm good to go for another year. 
    I've thought about going to the Brookville plant, but I'm only out that way during hunting season. 2 problems. The truck is full of hunting gear, and I don't have a closed trailer. Most years the truck doesn't have a deer in it, but a guy can hope, right? ;)

    Also, the cost of fuel for my truck is close to the same amount as the shipping charge.

    @hapster there are 30 20# bags/pallet. I'd like to get one more person on board so I can order 2 pallets. I know you are close to Fred's. He carries it if you want to try out a bag. I really like it. So far, Shiff and I are in. Neptunes never got back to me.
