  1. Great news and always good when the uncertainty is lifted!
  2. Thoughts and prayers for your wife and to you and the family!
  3. Congrats on the move, but you’re going to have to change your handle to “PatioSmoken”! Nice setup, now let the smoke fly! Regards
  4. See you played that dance music, should have put on a little Barry White and the corn would have been left alone. Granted the population explosion would be a "next year" problem, but by then you would have figured out how to move them along!
  5. Sure, but just wait until Dennis comes out with the OMG 52! Congrats and be sure to post pictures!

    Basic advice

    Current gaskets are some form of silicon or other "rubber" like material, not the ceramic fiber. I'm saying silicon based on the temp Dennis mentioned. I would have to try and find the explanation Dennis provided, but from what I recall it was the high temp air flowing/blown over the side that could cause the damage.

    Nope, just the 2 lower gaskets, some of the early models didn't use the two gaskets like the more current models.

    Basic advice

    I pull out the bottom vent and open the top vent fully, I hit the charcoal with a weed burner in a few places and then close the KK all the way closed (2nd latch position so as tight as it can get) and go away for 30 minutes. When I come back I'm sitting @ 400+. If I'm going for high temp, I will hit multiple places across the entire basket of lump, for low and slow, just 1 place. For low and slow I will come back sooner and start closing the top/bottom vents to get to the desired temp. For higher temp, I make sure to have a lot of charcoal lit and give the KK longer to get there. Dennis has mentioned a couple of times that high temp cooks with the lid open can cause premature main gasket failure, so I chose to believe him and try to cook with the lid closed. I think with the older grills, before he went to the 2 gasket type may not have had this issue. As I recall he said anything over 500 and cooking with the top open could cause an issue with the gaskets. Regards
  9. I prefer the boxes as it is easier to store bulk amounts in the garage. I was wondering how I would be able to stack the bags easily as compared to the boxes.
  10. Inside joke...but really pebbles cook best
  11. Well, pebbles cook better I think it is really going to be more of the choice of available color and what you will feel fits best in with the look of your ODK. Not sure what the stability of a 32 would be without the legs/wheels, it would also reduce the grill height, unless you built a stand for it to rest on. I would think some sort of a false front to cover the wheels/legs would be easier, but it would be a toe catcher. Give Dennis a call, he is the authority and could fill you in on if a baseless 32 is a realistic build. He can also let you know how long it would take to get something like that to you. Regards.
  12. I was worried that this was going to be a thread about an all male party aka “sausage fest” Great job, wish I was there to help sample!
  13. Congrats on the safe journey home and a hell of a deal!!! For those contemplating a move, here is how I did it, long read and plenty of pictures! Moving a KK, one way to do it.
  14. Once they pass the quick Q+A, how about an essay question, something like: Compare and contrast the effects of direct and indirect cooking with a focus on conduction, convection, and radiation. Bonus points awarded for calculating the heat transfer rate in each scenario. Be sure to show your calculations for each including full formulas used to derive answers. Granted, they can bypass all of this if they know the secret phrase “I have cash and will pay the full asking price!”
