Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

OVEN Pork Butt.. Ask me why

The XL egg is frozen solid, that's why. 

We had a hard freeze here in Dallas this past week. Lots of rain and snow and ice. I picked up a 13 pounder yesterday, walked outside a few minutes ago to crank the egg, and the damn lid is closed solid.

I tired using a butter knife to pry the gasket - no luck.

I tried to light the coal from beneath, even used my wife's hair dryer to help stoke - no luck.

My family will be here tomorrow at noon, so I either need a quick fix to get the egg open, or off to the oven she goes.

Any help or pointers on the over route would be helpful. I figure the oven route would be similar to the egg.. in a large turkey pan, v-rack, and cider in the bottom, 300 degrees should have me at 190 by noon. 

Thanks guys. 

Jason
