It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Band Adjustment

The other day I started the egg and started preparing food. About 20 minutes later I thought "oh crap!!" When I got to the egg it was on 200. I thought the flame may have went out. After noticing a smell and trying to pick the lid up I realized the smell was the gasket cooking. Once I opened it and it was cherry red I realized the reason I was on 200 degrees was because the thermometer made a full circle back to 200. So I was sitting well over 1000 degrees.

I started noticing the hinges are now hitting on my table. I assume it got so hot it expanded my band and now it needs some adjusting. What is the best way to tighten this. Do I have to go back and put the "white clips" back on to do this or should it be pretty simple? I just don't want to screw it up beyond repair. Do they need to be loosened and slid up or down and retightened?

    If you have the clips, I'd use them. If not, carefully loosen the bolts to move the bands (if they need moving) and then while pressing gently down on the dome, tighten them. Good to go!
