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

High heat and the dome thermometer

I was heating up my egg this weekend to cook steaks and my egg went nuclear.  Went in the house for 10 minutes and when I came out it was reading 200 F which I thought was strange because it was at 350 F when I went in.  Opened the lid and it was a ball of blue flames so I shut it quickly and flames were coming out of the daisywheel.  Does it damage the thermometer when it laps itself?  I noticed latter that it was flickering when it was cooling down.  Checked it the next day in boiling water and it was off by 10 degrees and seemed to work.  I figure it was at 1000 F.   On a side note, original felt gasket and its still fine.
