GMG Davy Crockett Mods

In terms of cooking I should say Davy Crockett has been really good. For me it usually takes about an hour to reach 130 degrees for a trip-tip from a refrigerator directly. That is pretty awesome I think. And I am also satisfied with the results . 

However there are few modifications which I felt it is necessary to improve the overall quality of cooking with Davy Crockett. 

Here are few which I recently had to deal with ..:

Mod 1) Annoying Legs removed

This is totally subjective. It is purely on my preference. I find the legs to be quite annoying especially since I am using a  table top. However if you are not using it directly on a table top then you might actually like it.

So I removed the legs. And it looks like this now..

Warning: Be careful while keeping crockett on a plastic surface. I completely melted my outdoor plastic table. My bad.

Instead what you can do is take a thin sheet of metal surface and place it over that. 

Mod 2) Seal the Lid Area. 

Not to mention there are some serious issues of leakages in GMG Davy Crockett . One of the major areas of leakage is the cooking chamber lid.  

I used a gasket seal across the lid completely to fix this issue.

Warning: After using the gaskets over the lid corners It lead to another issue of the lid not getting closed properly . So this needs to be carefully done while taking this into care.

Mod 3) Use gaskets on the corners. 

So once the gasket is put on the lid. I found that there were still some leakages through the side where the lid is attached to the body of Davy Crockett. 

See below..

I basically splitted the same gasket into three parts and then sealed these side areas between the bolts and tightened it.

You got it . The basic idea is to seal the area of leakages.

Remember still the lid needs to open and close properly . Do it with care. 

Mod 4) Using Latch Locks

And finally I observed that the leakages were minimum when I put my hands on the lid handles and tried to keep it close.

So I got little latch locks to keep the lid locked . 

These are easily available at nearby shops. However there are also other locks that you can get online. Either way it is fine.
