Big Green Egg Burn Off Cleaning


Every barbeque season (if you believe in such a thing) or two I like to clean my BGE by doing a burn off. The basic premise is this: 1) fill’er up with charcoal.

  • I tried this burn off and it cleaned the area with the charcoal but the top did not get clean at all. Did it again and still not clean. Why?

  • I purchased a used Green egg, I would like to attempt this since I will have to replace the gasket. What is the recommenced temp? I mean would 600 degrees create the same result?

  • How do you clean the part that sits on top that you open & shut to get air?

  • A burn off is very useful and something I do annually. Approx 800 deg. Getting as hot as you did is why the gasket is wrecked. You can and should occasionally do a high temp cleaning but after 5 years of very heavy use my gasket is still perfect.

  • This is not necessary at all. The more grease buildup in your egg the better flavors you will get. The grease will build up to a certain point and wont really go past that point as it will start to burn off.

  • Don't really see the point of this and there are too many risks involved. In my opinion, the more build up the ceramic Kamado gets the better the flavor it imparts to what you are cooking.

  • Destroyed my gasket by accidentally allowing my BGE to get this hot. I sure wouldn't do it intentionally.

  • So… Why do this? I use my egg all the time and it has a layer of suit, but it's never been a problem

  • Glad I watched this. I probably would have done a burn off and ruined the gasket before it even needed a proper cleaning.

  • Be careful doing this if your egg has been sitting outside in the rain all winter, the egg will absorb moisture and if you bring the temp up rapidly the the ceramic finish can be damaged as the steam tries to escape. Happened to me and I was lucky enough to shut it down before any major damage.

  • Did this and the top and bottom "welded" together. Had to bore a pilot hole with a drill then use a small small and work my way around the Egg. Also my temp gauge is useless since it's now pegged at 740. Also the inside of the grill was not white. New gasket and not a clean Egg. Won't do this again

  • RO is the manufacturer for BGE Lump. Just a FYI.

  • Might want to remove the Tel-Tru thermometer when you do a clean burn. 😉
