What is temp and duration for a high temp burn?

    When I have finished a cook and the BGE has some lump, not a 3/4 load or so, I open the bottom and take the top off and let 'er rip 'til burns out. Put plate setter and grids in also.

    Full...Full...Till it's empty. :ohmy:

    Open bottom and no top.

    If you have a fresh gasket, I would take it easy on doing a burn. I did one after putting on a Nomex and using it a few times. Darn Egg was sealed shut. Used and ugly gaskets should be good to go.

    650 degrees for about 4 hours, that's all.
