Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

I came home and there was a hint of sprinkle so I thought I could fire up the egg before the rain hit. The lid was open and some big rain came in. I shut it down and inspected when it let up.

The starter cube had just finished and the egg wasn't hot at all. I took out all the glowing lump and wiped out as much moisture as possible. The gasket is damp but not soaked and there is a little moisture inside the egg. What should I do at this point?

The rain should be gone by tomorrow and I can work on drying it out.

    Don't worry about it. Won't hurt a thing! Light it up and use it as if nothing happened......

    I would put dry lump in, fire it back up and cook.
  • Put in some veggies and steam 'em!
  • The rain's coming off and on so I'm going to call no joy tonight. Tomorrow I'll have to cook something and work on drying it out. I just don't want anything to crack.

    Start building an outdoor cooking area complete with roof hehe.
  • The general consensus on here is that it is nothing to worry about, and I have no reason to doubt it. If you want to play it safe you may want to light it up early before your cook tomorrow and let it roll for an hour or two at low temps to slowly drive out any moisture left behind.
