# 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…
