    Sad part is when you burp the oven indoors or a gas grill do to habit.

    I need to get into the habit of burping. One of these days that egg of mine is going to bite me. Then I will hear SWMBO tell me that she told me to be careful.

    Used to think burping was opening and closing the lid without opening all the way.  Soon found out not a good idea as one night it starting chattering away worse than any Mel Tillis speech you may have suffered through.  Was just adding oxygen to the top of the fire.  Man it was stuttering to the point I thought it would explode.  Luckily I read enough bumf to stand to the side and when I opened the lid it was like a Canadian CF-45 (Voodoo) leaving an aircraft carrier.  Had it been winter I wouldn't have had to shovel the driveway for a week.  That's an after burn I don't want to see again.

    Just take the daisy wheel completely off for at least 2 minutes. Problem solved.

    Yes.  I own a blue egg!  Call Atlanta if you don't believe me!

    I thought I cracked my lid once when I forgot to burp.
    I just walked up looked at the temp 300 degrees(no big deal) and lifted the handle.
    I didn't have a solid grip and the flames shot out, scared the living **** out of me and I dropped the lid. I didn't realize at the time the the temp gauge had gone all the way around once already.
