I've have two BGEs, a large and a small. We have had the large for about 6 years and it lives outside. Half of its life was in Florida and the rest in Maryland. Aside from the gasket, I've never replaced a single piece.

Thanks I have been reading about the Rutland gasket conversion. I have also been reading that some people on the BGE forum run gasketless... i am not so sure i would want to do this.

Yeah the cart is more utility over looks.. i guess i would rather let the food do the talking, but the scorch marks from the house fire sure make it interesting haha

I put a new Rutland gasket on last week following the directions on the NakedWhiz web site. Fairly easy job...

We have family visiting this week and I smoked a brisket on the egg yesterday. Excellent! After chucking my half bag of Green Egg lump, I used the Royal Oak lump from WalMart. Worked great and only costs half as much.

Seems like Canadian dealer prices are set by BGE, as pricing is the same everywhere you look.

They also void the lifetime warranty if you don't buy from an authorized dealer. Lifetime warranty is also void if you buy in the US and bring it to Canada.

Although, I heard (unconfirmed) that Costco in Edmonton had them a while back...

I have seen lightly used large BGE's with accessories for around $500 on CL.

If I was in the market, I would strongly consider this option. Almost 1/2 price for something that doesn't wear and will last (just about) forever.

The problem with not having a gasket is holding low temperatures for long periods of time. For instance, it would be very difficult to maintain a static temperature for an overnight Boston Butt cooking session. If you are never going to cook at less than 300 degrees, it would probably be fairly transparent not having a gasket(s).

Our neighborhood Fall Festival is today. We do two whole hogs in a cinderblock pit, and I do the beef in the Egg. I looked back through this thread and saw that I documented this annual event in 2009 during my first shot at this chore. In an effort to update my notes, I'm capturing my efforts today in this thread again.

This is a 30lb top round that we got straight from the butcher. I rubbed it in olive oil and McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning. I prepped the Egg for an indirect cook and inserted a drip pan that I filled with beer. I inserted a handful of hickory chips. I'm cooking at 325 degrees and shooting for an internal temperature of 130 degrees. I think this will take about 4 hours.

okra

New favorite grilled vegetable. A little olive oil salt and pepper and cook until they have a good char. I've converted okra haters with this. Give it shot

I went old school last night for the Rangers games! Grilled burgers, brats, chicken, and hot dogs! So easy and so good! Game sucked big ones!
