The daisy wheel is the cast iron piece that allows you to control the air in your Big Green Egg. It’s an important piece of your Big Green Egg which is why we recommend that you clean it regularly. We recommend that you store your daisy wheel inside of your Big Green Egg after each use. If you still find that your daisy wheel is becoming difficult to open due to rust, we recommend you follow the steps below.
1. SCRUB THE DAISY WHEEL WITH STEEL WOOL
To begin, you need to remove any rust from your daisy wheel by scrubbing the wheel with steel wool.
2. COAT THE DAISY WHEEL WITH OIL
You can either spray or brush oil all over the surface of your daisy wheel. Make sure that you coat both the inside and the outside. We recommend using vegetable oil, but honestly it doesn’t matter.
