    Hi temp burn should work, what you might be doing wrong is not burning long enough. Try 600+ over several hours and everything should burn.
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!

    You might need to keep them at 600 a little longer, or even take them hotter but then you risk your gasket. I run mine at 650-700 for about 45min.
  • After you do the high temp burn, take a good size piece of aluminum foil, wad it into a ball shape and scrub down anything that the high temp burn did not get rid of. I then take a shop vac and vacuum the egg out.

    Are you talkin about the inside or outside of the eggs? :whistle: I use Simple Green on the outside of mine,but like the others said,high temp should do the trick for the inside :)

    Gene - about how long was the "cook" and at what temps? Mine needs a cleaning too.. and I'm gasketless, so temps don't matter. :laugh:
