About a month ago OMC replaced both top and bottom Keg body. After receiving them I found that my stand was also rusted. Contacted them again and they sent me a new stand and even paid the shipping!

Uncle, I can't remember the last time I've had a corn dog.  those sure look good.  I've got to get some and create a new memory!

Bubba Smokes Once Again

It's good to see smoke coming out of the Keg again -

No leaks around the gasket, which is great. And the bottom vent seems to be doing well also.

Last night was Wings and Fries night. I seasoned a bunch of wings and lightly dusted them with seasoned flour then took them outside and fried them in the electric fryer.

Eight minutes per batch was the ideal time at 350 degrees and they came out nice and crispy.

Some were tossed with some Tabasco Buffalo style sauce and melted butter and some served naked.

Ready to eat!

Not too bad!

Bubba gets a nice cover for protection -

Very high quality cover, quite heavy, nicely stitched.

Better job on sealing the lower vent -

High temp gasket installed, will wait a day or so before firing up the Keg -

Three Amigos -

I'm happy to have Bubba looking good again. Hopefully the repair will provide a few more years of service.

In preparation for the Nomex gasket, I needed to clean the lid and base surfaces. I think @Uncle has used these gaskets on his Keg successfully.

To get the surface clean, I used the same method I used to clean up a Weber kettle I recently acquired - a razor blade. Like the Weber, I believe the Keg interior is porcelain so it's not going to scratch. Here are some pics of the surfaces. The lid was a lot easier to work on since it's been protected by the gasket all these years.

Scraping away -

Mostly done, even managing to clean up the rivets with the razor -

Complete -

I'll go over the surfaces with some rubbing alcohol to get them completely clean so the gasket will adhere properly.

A closeup of the vent repair -

As an fyi, that's a #12 x 3/4" Stainless Steel Pan Head screw holding the vent in place. I plan to add some JB Weld Hi Temp Sealant between the vent edge and the aluminum to prevent water from seeping back in under the vent. I noticed with the rain we had here in Massachusetts overnight the vent was wet on the inside.

I also splurged and ordered an official Broil King Keg cover for Bubba. After all my hard work I may as well keep it looking good.

So, that's it. One Bubba Keg restoration which should allow a few more years of service.

I really like it! I wish it was available year round. I'm usually a lager guy but their pilsner is pretty darn enjoyable.
I have been looking for their Octoberfest with no luck so far. The website says it's in several stores locally but I;ve checked about five and haven't found it yet. I guess I'll grab some more of the pilsner.

I've had the Samuel Adams Octoberfest, picked up a case a little over a week ago. Not bad. I'm not seeing many other OF's around here yet. I have seen Shiner's but haven't had it yet. I asked Darren to check up there around Huntsville. If he finds it I might ask him to get some and bring it to a get-together were doing in October. 3 0r 4 of us will be spending a few days at a camp up in north Louisiana.
Got a menu going and so far I'll be bringing shrimp to fry for poboys, some large shrimp for New Orleans style barbecue shrimp(and more French bread), pheasant, quail, dove and andouille gumbo, elk backstrap on the grill most likely, fresh caught and fried fish(crappie, catfish and maybe bass) and more.............
Oh, and they have a grill so I won't be hitching the Keg this trip.
