I grilled a steak Friday night (a really nice, hand cut NY Strip from the Laurel Meat Market). When I seared it, I had the Egg at about 700 or higher. Flames were shooting out the top. Every time I opened the dome I got a flashback like effect - huge flames coming out. It was kind of dangerous. One time I had to let the lid drop because it was so hot.[p]Usually flashbacks occur after the Egg has been shut down and gases build up inside. Has anyone had something like this happen to them? I replaced my broken grate with a metal one a couple of months ago. I have been getting the Egg much hotter in a shorter time since I replaced it. I have also had this flashback problem with the metal grate. Maybe I need to fix the ceramic grate (or get a new one), or start searing at a lower temp.
