I have owned a large BGE for 1 1/2 yrs. and used it perhaps 50-70 times some slow cooking, a lot of grilling steaks and chops. Lately (last 2 or 3 times) after high temp grilling when I close the vent and put the damper on (for some smoke flavor on the steaks) there is a very bad odor coming from the egg. It smells like an incinerator burning plastic. Also for the first time I have been experiencing back draft and an explosive flash when I open the dome.I've burned the hair off my forearms!
I use BGE lump and wet mesquite wood chips. I have never cleaned the egg and I am wondering if that is the problem. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
