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

Crazy new way to light egg

Tonight I was goofing around and had some almost done for lump in my large. There was one nice sized piece. I put it in the bottom vent and lit it with my map torch. Shut the dome and everything else wide open. Came back about 15 min and had a nice ember like burn of a majority of the old coals. Was not gonna be enough to cook on so I poured a good layer of new RO on top. Smoke smoke smoke smoke!! I had a little fun burping and making smoke signals. Knowing the bottom was lit good I just shut the dome and walked away. Temp was around 300 and smoking still like crazy. Opened the down, sparks started flying like nuts!! And POOOF SHOOSH BOOM! Almost the whole layer of lump burst into flames!! I assume the embers were working on the new lump and then the added rush of oxygen it just exploded. Was freaking awesome and I had a balling fire going!! This is definitely not going to change how I light, but was super cool and will do it again some time!!
