Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

    Fantastic!

    Don't you get bored of knocking it outta the park so often??

  • Re: Another Rockwood problem?

    I would have to see this scenario replicated/reproduced to believe it. I'll go out on  limb and say that there's no way an egg filled to the top of the fire ring can burn out in 4 hours, without truly registering any higher than 280 on the thermo. To burn that much lump to ash, the temp would have to hit higher than 280, no matter which lump you used.

    Possibilities:

    -your thermo is not calibrated correctly.

    - the thermo had actually lapped itself i.e. the needle wrapped around so  the egg wasn't actually going at 280, it was blazing past 700 and climbing.

    -you have a leak somewhere e.g cracked base, leaky lower vent, etc. My small would be full of ash and still warm the morning after a cook. I resealed the lower vent and all was good again.

    - the top vent is leaky when you close the DFMT or put the ceramic cap on.

    I've burned about a pallet  of RW and never seen anything like this.

    Good grief.  What happens when you're faced with real life decisions?? 
    Since  heading inside anyways,  give it to customer service. I don't need $20 worth of batteries on my conscience. 

    Winning powerball ticket would be an entirely different matter :smiley:

    Leave the drain plug open after draining it out.

    @DMW I sort of agree with you,  but neither my physiology or marriage would survive if that were to happen.
