After about a year use, my egg was really getting coated on the inside. I built a new table for it so I thought it'd be an opportune time to burn out all the charcoal inside so that the high temp can clean all the buildup.
As noted in the other posts, it cooked my felt gasket. It is still burning now, I noticed that the felt had started to bubble around the edges. When I tried to open it, it was stuck!
How do I go about opening my egg?
