Having an issue with the lower band sliding down when my large egg is 300-400 degrees for an extended period of time.  It causes the top not to close properly. Has anyone else had this problem and what is the solution?  I went to Home Depot last night and bought new carriage bolts and replaced them. I fired up the egg, stabilized at 400 to reverse sear 2 rib eyes. Everything was going okay until right when I opened the top to put on the steaks, the lower band slid down again.  Is it the bolts?   Thanks in advance

  • First attempt at atomic buffalo turds.

    Just bought a large egg 2 weeks ago and have been cooking every night on it. Love this thing. Thanks to all that Contribute on this site, it's helped me a ton.

    So Monday night I decided to cook atomic buffalo turds to see how good they really are. I used home grown jalapeño peppers, cream cheese, cocktail Winnie and wrapped them in bacon. Placed on the egg at 400 indirect for 40 minutes or so. Awesome! This will definitely make the menu for the Lsu bama football party next weekend. Geaux tigers.
