frozen Domes

I have seen a lot of postings regarding domes frozen to the bottom of BGEs. Instead of putting foil or wax paper between the gaskets, what if you just inserted a couple of plastic spacers, in between, that would keep the Egg open a little? Even a quarter inch should keep the two from freesing together. The only thing is that you would have to wait until your lump is snuffed out.[p]Maybe this has already been tried and for some reason it doesn't work.[p]


  • CR,
    That's the problem, you have to wait for everything to cool it is "the next day," and by the time you get around to thinking of Mr. Egg, he's sitting out there just fine, not frozen together, and then you go..."heck with it! Everything's fine." [p]Then it rains/snows/freezes/ Now you are mumbling about one solid frozen egg. Now we start the wrestling match to get the top and bottom separated without damage. No fun, but "stuff" happens.[p]Mike in MN

    Mike in MN, well then I would say that having a frozen dome is no problem if taking 1 minute to put in spacers is more of a problem than getting the dome unstuck.
