We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

I have been chucking my charcoal into the egg just above the air holes. However, it is very smoky for some time after lighting. Also I struggle to hold much above 350deg F. I'm using BGE charcoal but the lumps are rather small. Last point my top daisy wheel is very slack. Even when closed lots of smoke leaks around the disk ie it doesn't lie flat. Any advice?
