Help! Drip pan spill

Was taking drip pan out and spilled down into my fire box!  How do I clean it out?!
When you get to a fork in the road, pick it up, spear something with it and throw it on the grill!!!

  • So burning will clean it off and not damage the egg?

    How much did you spill? In thinking about it, if you spilled a bunch it may have soaked into the ceramic and it might not be a great idea to go super hot if the ceramic is soaked.

    Ash and charcoal probably soaked up a bit of it.

     Do nothing, just go along, it won't make the slightest difference.  A hundred cooks from now you won't even blink at this mishap.

  • Ok, everyone.  I fired the egg back up after dinner.  Took it to 600 plus with no problems.  Charcoal definitely lit faster.  Haha!  Thanks for the tips!
