First- timer here!!
Just picked it up today!
Some other Egghead friends recommended doing an initial burn, without food to prime the EGG.
After starting the coals and as soon as I closed the lid after 6-7 minutes, I experienced a popping blue flame from the bottom vent. It ran out about 6 inches, popped about four times then went away. Luckily I wasn't standing near the vent. :huh:
I'm not skilled in thermodynamics, but I know it was backdrafting and was wondering if this normal or if I did something wrong.
Cant wait to get some meat on this thing, I've got ribs in the fridge for tomorrow.
