Ok, cooked a pizza on the XL tonight for the wife and I but after taking the pizza off the grill the lid would not close straight. When pulling the lid down it pulls to the right. I checked all bolts and they are all tight, but there is no way to get the lid to close to put out the charcoal. So, any suggestions on how to put the coals out so I can work on this thing? ITS HOT, 550 degrees, and my gasket is now gone almost.
I know I can spray it with water, but Im afraid that a rapid cool woudl break the ceramic. Salt? Any suggestions?
