Yucky, Stuck Daisy Wheel?

Daisy wheel vent stuck and the daisy top won't rotate due to many, many enjoyable cooks on the BGE? Well, take that sucker off, put in a disposable aluminum pan and spray it liberally with Greased Lightning. Turn it over and repeat - again and again until the brown stuff ceases to run off. No brushing is necessary - just rinse and dry. Clean it good enough and that baby will spin like the hubcaps of the car next to you at the redlight!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone tought me early on to put the daisy in the egg when your done cooking and cap the the ceramic one to kill the fire. It will stay exactly how you want it. Seasoned, spinny and still a bit sticky ;)

    And another ditto as this one is so simple it is almost embarassing.
