Question about Big Green Egg Grilling

1 Answer

I have a large green egg. just replaced gasket and having trouble with the lower band. it wants to slip upwards and does not fit properly-thus allowing air to leak out. I put in a new bolt and tried to re-fit and it seems to fit better but it still does not fit properly.

The early bands had a locating pin in nthem but this just cracked off some ceramic when removed. The bands are genrally never entirely right. You really have to tighten them as much as possible

Cannot remove oil filter toyota pickup


As a last resort, yeah, a screwdriver. What about a strap-type remover? Large channel-lock pliers? Make sure not to over-tighten new filter. Good luck.

The lid does not seat squarely on the base. There is a 3/16'' gap on the hinge side. Plus the lid is offset back a bit so that it is not square on the base.


They dont always fit perfectly, To have it fit as good as possible,
put lid in down position loosen bands slightly manipulate bands to allow lid weight to close gap then retigthen bands in this position now when closed lid should sit fairly squarely on base

Lid is stuck, can't open it.


Have you checked the lift assist hinge springs on the back of the grill. If they are broken or have come loose, it's impossible for one person to lift the lid. Also, if the lid gasket is severely worn, this could cause the lid to stick.

If none of the above is the culprit, contact Big Green Egg by email or phone
Customer-Support@BigGreenEgg.com or call (800) 793-2292.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

When my green egg gets to temp over 600 the lid becomes lose and falls off when you lift it. I've already broke one. Why is this


It sounds like a problem with the hinge springs, rather than the lid. One will usually break before you realize it has. Then the second one goes, before you realize it. And it's usually when you have the Egg heated to a high temperature. You should also check the steel band around the egg, that is part of the hinge system to make sure it has not been overtightened or is to loose.

The folks at Big Green Egg take this sort of thing seriously and are devoted to their customers. You should also contact them about this issue.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Is there an instruction booklet that comes with it


Yes, normally there is. Are you looking for an assembly manual or how to use the grill? If it's an assembly manual, the dealer you purchased it from should have one or call Customer Service 800- 793-2292. If it's how to cook on it go to Big Green Egg's website http://www.biggreenegg.com/ and click on Grilling and Smoking.

Enjoy your Egg and Happy Grilling!!

Lid is stuck closed, cannot get it open


Is it really cold where you are in June? If so, light a small fire in the very bottom of the Egg behind the draft door. After a while the Egg will warm up the ice keeping the lid closed will melt.

If it's not really cold where you are...get out a butter knife and slice it open around the rim. Then buy yourself a new gasket here http://www.outdoorhome.com/productcart/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=33
