Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Chemical smell

Been egging a while now, just signed up. About a month ago I noticed a burning chemical smell coming from the egg, even ruined a meal. I figured it was the gasket burning. Thus I went out and bought the "high heat gasket" from BGE at my nearest dealer. Removed the old and cleaned off the old adhesive with some acetone. I then installed the new one and let it sit a day before my next cook. Problem went away and I was happy again. However, it seems to be creeping back and I smell it sometimes. Has anyone ever dealt with anything similar? I love my egg, but this is annoying.
