Just started using a Large Egg, and when I open the lid after long cooks grease/etc drips from the top damper down the back of the lid. I can obviously clean this witha degreaser or other chemical agent, but I don't want ot damge the finish o nthat green beauty. Has anyone used a product to handle this situation with success/failure?

I had a particularly moist cook today on the Egg and it wipes off with a damp rag.

you can minimize what comes off the dfmt by placing it in the egg after a cook and use the ceramic top to snuff the charcoal. the heat will burn off any residue on the dfmt.

Simple Green would seem very appropriate to clean an Egg. :grin:

i wouldn't use any harsh cleaners, bleach, or even simple green on the outside of the egg. i don't see the need to. a damp cloth (yes even a paper towel damp with spit:shock:) will clean off any dark stains caused by dried liquid smoke that has run down the side of your egg. if you must, i'd use a light dish washing soap if you had to. remember, the ceramic is porous and could absorb anything you put on there. the green glaze will get fine cracks or crazing in it (possibly). ceramic cooker faq (http://www.nakedwhiz.com/ceramicfaq.htm)
