I'm on the verge of buying an Egg, and have kept up with the BBQ newsgroups for awhile. I often see owners talking about cranking their ceramic cookers the night before, then going off to bed. Is there no concern of a housefire as a result? How hot does the outside of the cooker get? (A former lady friend of mine, a firefighter, would have kittens at the thought :-) ).[p]Also, looking at some of the recipes (the Elder Ward pulled pork in particular) I note that some of the measurements, most likely fractions, are represented as encoded characters. Unfortunately, my browser displays same as assorted Greek characters, often variants of Pi. Could the BGE recipe
maintainers please convert same into literal fractions please, ala 1/3 Cup?
