I cleaned out my egg in preparation of a low and slow tomorrow - 4 butts.  I have always wondered about this but finally took a picture so that I can ask y'all who are much more knowledgeable than I about the egg.  When I put the firebox back into the egg and match up the bottom opening of the firebox with the vent opening of the egg, the firebox is cocked to the left if you consider the opening as the center.  See the pic.  I don't mean to get too personal, but are y'all's like this?  My egg was delivered assembled and in the nest so I wonder if is was set up wrong.  It is a large.  I have never had a problem getting it up to temp and have done quite a few over night low and slows with no problem.  I look forward to your comments.

  • The entire stainless bottom vent is centered on the Egg, so the actual opening is to the side.

     

    As others have said, this is normal.  Egg-on.
