Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Tippy Egg

Just received my Large Egg, and setup in a red cedar table that I built, resting the egg on a 16x16 concrete paver. The egg is rock solid when the dome is closed, but fells like it wants to tip back when I open it up - is this normal? The paver has a pattern on it that is supposed to look like brick, and I had to lay 2x4 under the paver to achieve the proper height for the hinges to clear, but I can't see that making the egg tippy. Also, the table is setting on a concrete patio, and that area of the patio has a slight angle to it, probably 1 inch in 4 feet, that shouldn't affect it.

Is this normal, or should I take fire box and ring out, dome off, and pull the egg to look at the bottom off the egg for un-evenness?
