So we got a new XL egg and cooked some great spatchcock chicken on it last night. After the cook I closed the bottom vent and put the ceramic cap on the dome. All was good until this morning when I opened the egg to get things set for a pork butt and a rack of ribs. I happened to glance out of the kitchen window and saw flames and smoke coming from the egg. I closed the dome and made sure the cap was still secure and the vent still closed. The dome temp went to about 460* and it's still at 410* after an hour has past.
The seal showed no smoke during the cook so I'm sure it's on right. It also past the dollar bill check when we assembled it.
The dome on this new egg has a felt seal so there shouldn't be any air escaping through that path.
The bottom vent is the only place I can think of but still don't understand how it re-lit itself after sitting all night (about 12 hours).
Has anyone had this happen?
BTW: Im not new to the egg. I've had mine for almost three years and this new one was bought for the Daughter.
