Dripping under egg

I was cooking on my egg tonight and I noticed underneath the egg there was an oil like substance dripping under my egg. I looked to make sure I didn't have seasoning dripping down the side and I don't. Not sure what that is. Any idea?


  • I have probably the same thing in cool or cold weather. Does it look like this under the vent?

    I noticed the same thing about a year ago.  This is what I found.


    A crack that ran clear across the base from the lower vent to the rear.  When I would do pork butts it would leak out and make one helluva mess.  After putting up with it for a year I reported it to my dealer a couple weeks ago and the replacement base is on the way.

    I'm ashamed what I did for a Klondike Bar!!

    I haven't seen any cracks and I wasn't cooking anything that was really juicy. Just burgers and brats. I did do a brisket last about 2 weeks ago. But I'll check for cracks tomorrow after it has cooled.
