Freaking BBQ sauce!

Just a little tip for all you new Eggers like myself if you're going to grill raised direct at the felt level watch out for barbecue sauce getting on your gasket because it can cause the gasket to stick together when you open the dome next time you Cook . I almost tore my gasket three times now :) damn!!!!!

    Don't worry about the gasket. My mini has a Rutland....you can't tell from sauce grease, fire. Its bound to happen.

    Swing outs or sliding d grid . also scrap your grids off the egg so gunk stays off the gasket!!!
