Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops
and Bell Pepper Kabobs
. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches
! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

Newer Egghead here. I've noticed that after several cooks, a lot of ash/little pieces collect at the bottom of the egg and prohibit airflow enough so that I can't get it up to 450+ and sometimes makes it very hard to get a fire going. I always have to clean it out fully and add all new lump.
Are you guys doing a full exchange of lump each time you cook? After 3-4 cooks? Are you only putting in large chunks?
Any tips/advice would be appreciated.
