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

Tippy Egg

Just received my Large Egg, and setup in a red cedar table that I built, resting the egg on a 16x16 concrete paver. The egg is rock solid when the dome is closed, but fells like it wants to tip back when I open it up - is this normal? The paver has a pattern on it that is supposed to look like brick, and I had to lay 2x4 under the paver to achieve the proper height for the hinges to clear, but I can't see that making the egg tippy. Also, the table is setting on a concrete patio, and that area of the patio has a slight angle to it, probably 1 inch in 4 feet, that shouldn't affect it.

Is this normal, or should I take fire box and ring out, dome off, and pull the egg to look at the bottom off the egg for un-evenness?
