I have had my egg for about 3 years and after cooking some BBQ chicken last night, I do like I always do and opened the dampers to let it burn off the grease and other dripping. I went out to shut the dampers and the egg was much hotter than I have ever seen it. I use a Tel-tru thermometer which goes up to 800 degrees. It was almost at the 300 mark on a round trip.[p]After shutting it down, I went out this morning to clean the grate and cover it and I discovered my Egg was fused shut. I am guessing its is the gasket which I have never replaced. Any one ever have this happen to them and any advice on getting it open and changing the gasket?
