Wet Egg interior?

edited 11:37AM in EggHead Forum
The last time I barbequed with the egg, I forgot to take the daisy/slider off. Hence, the thing got rained into etc. Now I noticed it is damp inside. I've heard it's not a good idea to cook on an Egg with a damp interior. I need to make some chops tomorrow night. Any ideas on how quickly this thing will dry out? Any way to test it? I thought I might use a heat gun. would it be possible to lay it by the slider & just point it into the egg for a few hours?

    bouvweb,[p]I worries. Add some fresh (dry) lump and bring the dome to around 300-350°F (temp not really critical). The top vent will tend to "puff" white smoke as the moisture is removed. A feel and a sniff of this smoke will tell you that it is water vapor. Once the moisture is gone, the top vent will again vent clear air.[p]Spin

    I agree with Spin, add new lump and fire it up. I have done that more than once.[p]Tim

    bouvweb, basically I agree with both suggestions..but do it in moderation for a few hours. I think your interior ash and firechamber will have taken in most of it. All should go well.

  • Spin,Tim M & Char-Woody,[p]Thanks for the help guys! You're the best!

  • bouvweb,
    If there is a fair amount of water you might try a leaf blower for a few minutes before lighting it up. It works on tennis courts! Just watch out for any old coals or ash.
