A simple component with many challenges…

Most kamados on the market employed the same type of vent control, including BGE. When I started, competitors were developing their own designs and aftermarket versions were becoming popular. The rEGGulator was the culmination of a three year project to develop our own. Despite having created over 20 mockups and prototypes, our greatest challenge lay in finding the right factories to manufacture it. Casting quality, geometric tolerances (especially surrounding the magnet placement), and proper assembly were all crucial factors in our search for vendors which spanned Central America and China.
