  1. Dad used the left over ash to fix up my weathered Egg I bought for $160. Think I want to redo the handle with some ash and my grills will be done...for now.
  2. Ran both the egg and the primo today. Shrimp on the egg and chicken breast and quarters in the primo. Got a steal on A1 dry rub. Love this stuff. Kroger must be discontinuing it. 0.79c a piece. Bought all they had.
  3. With the umbrella installed. Going to be grilling all weekend. Weather is going to be perfect. Boy is this thing heavy.
  4. My dad and I finally finished up a table for my LG Oval. Made with ash wood from trees he had to have taken down. All open except for front door. Openings filled with expanded metal. Installed an umbrella pole too. Can't wait to grill on it this weekend. Ribs it is.
  5. My father and I finally finished the table for my LG Oval. Made from ash wood from trees he had to have taken down. Expanded metal covers all pockets except front. Removable umbrella pole too. Very happy with how it turned out. Now to make some ribs this weekend.
  6. Got the egg cleaned up this weekend. Replaced the gaskets and did a higher temp burn. Had trouble getting to 650-700. Must not have had enough lump in there. Ignore the wagon, the Primo is getting a table soon. In the process of building.
  7. I purchased a LG Oval just before Superbowl this year. Upon assembly I noticed that the firebox grate, when moved forward and back would fall into the ash cavity. I returned to the promo dealer and their LG Oval on display did not do this. Also, I have the same drip pan rack problems as stated above. The drip pan fingers barely sit in the grooves put into the firebox. If the are move forward or back more than a half inch, the fall into the fire box. Initially I talked with primo just after getting the grill, sent them measurements of the firebox grate, they said all was normal. After visiting the dealer and discovering that their firebox grate did not behave as mine did, I reached out to Primo again. They are sending me a new firebox grate and drip pan racks, which is nice, but I feel the problem is in the firebox itself. Hopefully it all works out as I love the grill. I have made some damn good food on it, but it's frustrating that the grate falls in when stirring the ashes. I guess worst case I can buy some ash baskets.
  8. I just gave it a good brushing with an aluminum foil ball after taking all the components out to inspect. Good news is, all the components are intact. No broken ceramic. I still plan to do a high heat burn to clean it out a bit. Since I was not the original user, dont know what all he burned in there. I talked to him a bit and he said he never used lighter fluid and ran cowboy brand lump in it. It came with coals still in it. There were bricketts and what looked to be inteorior trim pieces in it. I saw inside his house when there and it looked to be the same. I feel I good hot burn will do the grill good as I now don't know what has been used as a heat source.
  9. Also need to replace the gasket. This one is about toast. Plan to replace after my clean-out burn. Will 600 for roughly 30 min be sufficient or too much?
  10. Found this used Medium BGE on facebook last week. Just purchased a Primo LG Oval but could not turn down the $180 price. Overall it is is good condition, a little weathered. Plan to replace the wooden slats with some left over ash boards I am utilizing to build a table for the Primo. Question is, there is a lot of buildup inside the grill, is it safe to do a burn off as is or should I try and clean some of the buildup off before I do a burn off? Don't want a grease fire. Very excited to play with this grill too.
  11. I think aluminum would be cool but probably more expensive than ceramic. Only reason I suggested steel over ceramic is because my friend has tons of plate steel and a water jet. He builds offroad buggies
  12. Thanks for the heads up. Will skip it. Do you think these will work or should I just pay the money and get the ceramic plates? Performance should be the same correct?
  13. Suppose that would work. I also have a ton of brick stacked up. Could set those up level and put a board out back up the the spring to keep it from falling over. Can't believe I missed the side skirts either. Love how understated the bullitt was.
  14. Local Primo Dealer called and offered me the LG 300 for $895. Hopefully get it home before the SB. Got to figure out what to put it on while I build my table. Already drawing up some plans in CAD.
