We have all had our share of a whoosh or burning heat from opening the dome, especially when we are new at this. So I just wanted to share a different way that i have picked up on and it has really helped. Especially when searing at high temps.

I like to stand on the side toward the back of the egg, reach around and burp and lift. Trust me, I have avoided many flare-ups in my face and fire balls on my arms by doing this.

This may or may not be for you but it sure helps me alot, and i never have to worry about fire or extreme heat in my face anymore.( What a Relief). Hope this helps somebody.

The credit of this goes to my cousin who doesn"t have an egg, and said to me one day, why don"t you just stand behind the egg reach around and lift. And I said duhhh. Peace...
