Hey All! New egg-user here. Had my large since Labor Day. First few cooks were low and slow and very successful (butts, brisket).
But, yikes, you guys...that flash and the heat and then there were flames shooting out the bottom vent and the top. I am afraid to grill steaks now.
I light the lump with a BGE firestarter. No problem getting things heated up...close the lid and let the fireworks begin. It is at this point that I am now afraid to lift the lid to put in the grid and the food. I have watched the on-line videos on the BGE site, but those do not show the flare-ups like I have gotten.
