Cooked some chicken at 450, came back down to start some steaks. Dome was at 700. I burped it, and opened it up to a huge intense flare up than actually zinged me a little on the wrist below my welders gloves (i'm fine). I countinued to attempt to burp it, then open it and it would do that every time. I even closed the dampers down, waited until it got to abut 475, and it is still had a huge flare up. I finally gave up and used the gas grill.
Any thoughts? I've seared steaks before and never had that issue.
