I'm interested to hear from other Eggers any effective and safe techniques to get the Egg cool enough to be able to put the grill cover on.
My Egg sits in a table I built and I like to cover it up when I'm done. But since the Egg is so good at retaining heat that can take a long time. I've tried some interesting (possibly crazy) thing. For example putting 3 or 4 bricks in the freezer and then putting them in the Egg as a "heat sink." That seems to do a good job of dropping the internal temp, but the surface of the Egg is still hot - possibly hot enough to melt or damage the cover. I also use a dish cloth the wipe the surface of the Egg down with cool water. Although I'm worried that too much cool water on a hot Egg could result in cracking.
So, any ideas? Or does anybody know how heat resistant the BGE covers are?
