Long story short...where we live there is nothing that sells some of this stuff, so the wife and I went out of town to look at the 26.75" Weber Kettle and the 22.5" WSM. Wife said "just get both". Sales lady was very happy. They had a Large Big Green Egg in the showroom and my wife was looking at it. The lady said that she was going to stop carrying them and she would make me a deal. The wife says"we'll take it too"!?!?
First cook, lump charcoal, Rib Eye Steaks. Followed instructions, got it up to 675 degrees, Seared the steaks, pulled them off. Shut the bottom damper, closed the top. Don't know why I did it but decided to open the lid...poof..flames shoot out
..close the lid. NOW IT WON'T OPEN!!!!
No more hair on the arm as well
. What went wrong???? HELP.
