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

Help please

I am constantly getting small chunks of charcoal stuck in the fire grate and constantly reaching through the draft door trying to poke them out. I think the reason I am getting so many is because I always reuse the charcoal that was left-over from the previous cook and these chunks tend to be small bc they have burnt down and easily get stuck. When you guys add charcoal to start your cook, do you just pour new charcoal on top of the coal that's already in there? Before I add, I normally use my ash tool to scrape around the bottom and let all the ash fall through, but all that does is allow even more small chunks to lodge in the holes of the fire grate. Tips?
