Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

What's the Deal with the Seal?

I spent $1100 + on my new XL BGE two weeks ago. Made a brisket, a shoulder, two steaks and two pizzas.

I did the recommended three burns at 300 degrees before going for the Pizza temp, was told that cures the glue on the seal.

Last night while doing my second pizza I noticed a smell and as I'm removing my pizza I see the seal is smoking away. I also think that smell cooked into the pizza.

Now I have to replace the seal?? This makes no sense that the BGE Co. would sell these things with this known problem.

Now I have to mail order a new seal or travel 50 miles to buy one from a BGE dealer.

Any recommendations or tips in replacing this thing? Any other alternative to the seal?

Frustrated in PA.
