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

I am brand new to the EGG and just did my inaugural (sp?) cook on the egg tonight.

I made some pizza it was of course amazing even with that crappy Publix dough.

Soo, I filled her up with lump and opened all dampers all the way.

I came back in 40 minutes and saw that it was on 300ish degrees and thought that did not seem right.

I opened her up and of course got my first taste of backdraft and a melted gasket.

So anyways, if I can get up to 1000+? (all the way around 300) what temps can you reach when you are trying to get really high temps.

I really want to do this again but throw a steak on and aim a leafblower at the fire pit.

Will I crack the EGG, has anyone done this? What are some max temps people have hit?
