Fire down below....and above....YIKES
I wanted to mention some strange goings on with my Lrge BGE yesterday. I was getting ready to cook my turkey. I had some leftover lump in the Egg. I stirred it and got all the ash to the bottom and all the holes were clear. I added a little new lump and mixed it in with the old. I also added a few apple chips.
I got the fire started per usual and all was going well. I put the plate setter in and a drip pan and closed the dome. The temp stayed at 275 for 20 minutes. I decided I would put the Eggcelerator on to give the fire a boost. After about 1 minute with the Eggclerator the fire was at 500 degrees...whoops..I turned it off and in another minute the fire had dropped to 310 which is where I wanted the temp. I let the fire go for about 10 minutes and it remained steady. Now I am almost ready to put on the turkey.
As I am getting ready to open the Egg my wife says you have a fire down below. I stopped and looked and for about 1 minute I had flames coming out the bottom draft.
I stepped back and said I have never seen that before. I waited until it subdued. The temp is still around 310. So I open the top with a slight burp and WHOOSH...another burst of flames out the top...YIKES...what the frick is going on...
anyway I waited almost 1 hr from the time I lit my lump until I put on the turkey...it turned out great with no other problems...
but does anybody have any idea what all that was about?????
