Welcome to the EGGhead Forum - a great place to visit and packed with tips and EGGspert advice! You can also join the conversation and get more information and amazing recipes by following Big Green Egg at:
After every cook, I totally empty the lump and save it then clean the BGE.
On the next cook, I add new lump (so the larger lump is on the bottom allowing better air flow) then add the saved old lump.
This whole strategy maximizes the desirable air…
I always put all my paraphernalia e.g. plate setter, pizza stones, etc., etc. in the BGE immediately after lighting the fire so they can come up to temperature along with the BGE and so they will not crack if suddenly put on a hot fire.
. . . . . …
I clean the ashes from my large BGE every time and make sure the holes are clear.
Then I reload the BGE with the larger (newer) lump on bottom, then the smaller lump, then the smallest lump on top. This enhances the air flow.

larryd wrote: what did you use for temp and time?
Larry, I stabilized the large BGE at 500 degrees then put the 4.7 lb rib roast on and shut all the vents.

Even so, like you, I love mustard greens (and ALL kin…
