Yep, my wife insisted on having double ovens in our new house for just that reason. She can have a cake going at 350 in one and broiling something else in the other. Nice

Rick,
You are very observant! Yes I did right after I assembled the new spring assist band and replaced the old ceramic fire grate. Yes , the scoop is for the lump coal and scooping out the ash into it so I can take it to the garden and mix it in with the dirt around my fruit trees. Chicken is close to being ready and the ribs still have a ways to go. Ribs are primarily for an all day halibut fishing trip on Wednesday morning.
It's tough being a West Coast fark but someone has to do it!:shock:

Fruit on the tree in the background are lemons. I also have 4 cherry trees, a tangerine, 1 fig, 2 Fuji apple, 1 naval orange, 1 lime,and 1 nectarine as well as 3 grapes.

Bottle opener? I use my thighs!:eek:

Cap,

How did you achieve the your table temp in the eggs? I recently got a LArge Egg. When I get it going I sometime have trouble maintaining the low temperture (225) when following the reccomended procedure i nthe egg literature. Additionally when I do get the fire stable and then add wood chips to the fire it takes forever for the temp to get back up to its proper level. What kind of timing/procedure are you using?

I used an old family secret. I get a scoop of wood chips to dd and then open the lid and dump them down the side on both sides and close the lid method. The egg will return itself back to the temp all by itself. The longer the door is open the longer the recovery. If you want super stable, put a Guru DigiQ or Stroker kit on your egg.

Now for the pron now that I am fat dumb and happy!
#1 Chick onthe egg. It's skin split but the meat stayed super moist.
#2 Chick again trying to show the skin was dark brown and not burnt.
#3 Ribs mid cook at 140 degrees while replacing the meat temp probe.
#4 Dinner ala pron

With whole Foster Farms chickens at 99cents/pound at Smart&Final, I will continue the beercan hot chick flick for the season as long as the price stays reasonable!

Rib pron shot of the first of the ribs. The meat peels of the bone and it is wet & moist as I put it in my mouth. GAWD these are going to go good on the boat in the bay on Wednesday!

looks good, but it doesn't look like your band bolts are tight enough. if they ain't bent, they ain't tight enuf. the dome can fall out of the band when the band expands due to heat and that's not a good day.

you have to bend the BOLT at least as much as this photo below. do it when the egg is cold. you will not break the egg with a wrench by hand. i'm not saying put a 4 foot leverage bar on there, but bend the bolt! you know how you cannot break an egg in your hand by squeezing it? it's the same principle. this bolt is the least bent of my three eggs. consider a hot dome falling out of the band when you open it. i've seen it happen on the big green egg forum... not pretty

hahaha! you better be bending two bolts per egg, mister!

the directions state slight bending of the bolts and band flanges is normal, and it's right here on the naked whiz's site: CLICK THIS (http://www.nakedwhiz.com/ceramicfaq.htm#tightenbands)

i've seen some bolts that were severely bent and the egg didn't break. i need to take photos of my other two egg's band bolts so i can show those since they are really bent.

remember, once the felt gasket gets compressed after a few months of use, you'll need to adjust the bands again and perform the "dollar bill pull out test" to determine if the dome is properly seating on the base. smoke escaping out the dome/base interface is a sign the bands need adjusting.
