Yesterday I went to fire the egg up for some steaks after 4 days of neglect on the patio. Loaded the lump up to the top of the firebox and lit her up. I then proceeded to clean the ash, I stick my tool in and to my surprise out leaps a MOUSE over my ash tool and ash pail. Dropped my tool and almost fell over from surprise LOL.
BIG GREEN EGG MOUSE CATCHER
I think if you have an eggware top and adjust your egg cover a little (I know I closed it) the top opens enough to let the mice in to clean your grill for you (another thing I noticed my grill was very clean when I know I did 2 chickens last and left it a mess). Well I brought it up to 750 to cleanup the egg for a few minutes.
Disclaimer No mice were harmed in this cook I think.
