Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

Rust on grate

My swing grate got rusted somehow (swmbo used the egg while I was gone and I'm going to assume she left it out in the rain).

What do I do to fix it?

    Warm it up on the egg..use bunched up HDAF to clean rust off (both sides) then get it screaming hot and cook hamburgers (80/20). Leave in egg to cool down use foil to knock off any residual food and store in egg. Cook with until it is well coated and it will never rust again. Mine got left in rain without shred of rust forming.
