The method is called "the burp".

Reduce the exhaust and intake - and quickly raise the lid only an inch - and close it again.
Repeat a few times until the fire is stabilized.

If you want to extinguish completely - close off all vents fully.

Is the key word 'grill' meaning hot? Haven't seen this at all on my Primo with temps up to 300. Have I just been lucky not to burp my eybrows off yet? And if 'grilling' is there much reason to close the lid in the first place?

Are you "burping" it first? Most kamado instructions I've seen says to open the lid a crack and wait a few seconds because if you go full open, then the sudden rush of oxygen causes the situation you describe.

bge, primo.....



i actually only lift mine a couple inches a few times. this is a good example of the movement, but not necessarily the best example of burping a ceramic kamodo style grill.

Why would you"flip the whole basket of charcoal "?That's your whole problem.

I'm not flipping any basket of charcoal no time to flip the food... And yes I was burping the grill but I don't think I was burping it properly or giving it enough time to burp before opening the entire top of the grill
