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!

  • Yes. When you get up that high it's like lava. Ha! Seriously though, that's totally normal. Just hot ambers falling thought the grate.

    Yes it is, but I would not have left my dome thermometer in during the burn off, but it sounds like you did. May I suggest you check the calibration before doing your next cook?

    As a matter of fact, an old wood stove trick is to keep about 1/2" or more of ash in the bottom of the stove, protects the fire bricks. When I clean out my ash, I toss some of the small unburned lump back into the bottom, it will catch and burn on the next cook. Why waste it. 
    Like RRP says, pull the dome thermo when you nuclear.
