    m. smith,
    Had Mr. Egg for three years and have never cleaned the inside...liner?... if I think cleaning is in order then I crank the big guy up to 1000º for 10 - 15 minutes and BONGO! As clean as I'll ever need him.

    m. smith, Except for lower fire bowls my eggs are shiny black including the inside of the dome. I think the disservice to newbies are the ad pictures of pristine white interiors. the only cleaning can be done as said - let it burn off sometime if it really gets bad.

    RRP,[p]Thanks for your help...Black sounds great to me and experience with one also...Sure wasn't looking forward to trying to keep it "WHITE" on the inside but did not know if it would affect the cooking.[p]Thanks again and keep on grilling!
