Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Here is what a 13 year old egg looks like inside

Can you say broke in and seasoned to the gills !

  • The advantage is you may not need any lump, once you get that crud burning and control the airflow, next low and slow is on the house....

    Well-insulated.  Probably great for a low and slow.

  • From a scientific perspective...I wonder if the uneven crud in your lid introduces inefficiencies in the convection process that occurs within the egg.  Would seem to me that it would have some type of impact.

    Eventually the rack may no longer fit inside all that build-up forcing a clean burn:)

    Clean burn is just firing it up as hot as she'll go and letting all that "seasoning" burn off.

  • You may want to inform the local fire department of your intentions beforehand

    I would load up that sucker and burn the @#$@! out of it.  

    The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire. we don't need know water let the @#$#@$ burn.  

    Fire in the hole!

    Clean it out good then you are good to go.

    Clean burn definitely called for and it will look almost new when finished but will probably fry the gasket!

  • And he'll end up with some goo on the outside too, although he probably doesn't care about that.

  • burn it until the fire goes out I would do it after a cook so as not to waste lump just open up bottom vent all the way take off daisy wheel and let it rip

  • A lot of that crud will fuel it's own fire. Make sure you have lump at the top of the firering to start. Maybe do a pizza at the end

    And make sure you pull the thermo out. It will be toast otherwise.
