Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

I found this today an a full clean out. It wasn't there 2 weeks ago on the last clean out. My XL hasn't been over 650 since purchased in Nov

What do ya Folks think?

    Possibly a flaw during the casting (assuming its cast).  I wouldn't worry about it, but keep an eye on it; if it goes more than halfway across I'd contact the Mothership...
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    I just noticed mine has done that exact same thing.

  • This was located on the hinge side. I use an electric starter right in the middle of my lum and  If I remember right I saw a post that the fife goes to the rear.

    I start the lump with starter squares. I also cook pizza a lot so the egg gets hot quite a bit. Not good.

  • Will contact dealer tom.
