Anyone else cut their fingers on the vent?

Just wondering- the screen seems to "follow" the vent when i open it- no biggie, but when i close it, there is that center tab with the squared off (and very sharp) corners- i got cut good once, and a couple scratches after - i guess i learned my lesson :)

Other than that (which i will fix shortly) I LOVE the egg!!!! Got a pork butt on it right now!!!

    You also have to be careful lifting the egg if you stick your hand inside the vent opening. You can get cut good that way too!

    Hah :laugh: Don't worry about that, make sure you've had a tetanus shot in the last ten years. In time you'll develop callouses like a guitar player. Wait'll you burn your eyebrows off, :woohoo: can't seem to grow callouses for that.
