First time to post in a while.[p]Love the Egg and the Forum.[p]New question: Been an Egg owner for about a year and a half. This is the first time I have had this problem. I have the grill extender.
It works pretty good. I am not sure about the folding legs, though. I cooked 5 5.5 lb hens on saturday. No drip pan. I have cooked up to 4 before with no problem. Here is my problem. I had 1/8 inch of greese in the very bottom of the egg. How do you clean this out?
This has never happened before. [p]Thanks in advance.[p]Mccarty

    Mccarty,[p]Just mix with the ashes and you can scoop it out. A piece of plastic cut from a plastic bleach jug works good as a scraper. The top makes a cheap scoop as well for the coal.[p]Z

    Mccarty, Thats a lot of chicken and grease. Try to think of some arrangement to catch all or part of that with a drip pan. Tough to regulate the fire/temps also I think.
