I'm very excited - pick up my new baby this Saturday.

I cannot wait to give her a test run. Not new to smoking, but I know there will be a learning curve.

Anyway, look forward to sharing my journey with all of you! B)

    WELCOME!!! with all the good cooks and photographers as are on here though ,,, it can be a bit intimidating... ;)

    Congratulations, you won't be disappointed. The Egg will be good for so much more than smoking.

    Do a search on "Naked Whiz" for a source of all things charcoal and ceramic cooker.

    tbk420, welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of egging! :)

    Thank you all very much.

    I live outside Pittsburgh, Pa., and have been smoking with an offset for several years.

    Now, I'm like a kid in a candy store! Ordered my AR and Spider, and found myself "needing" a wok! :woohoo:

    For now, just want to get the new baby home and safe. I've read that 4-5 low-n-slows are recommended for gasket break-in?

    Sounds like a weekend BBQ!

    Welcome! I went from smoking on a Brinkmann SnP to an Egg so the learning curve was a nice change, ha ha.

    Feel free to ask any specific questions once you start smoking on it.

    I just stumbled across this wonderful forum a few weeks ago. You are now rubbing shoulders with some real eggsperts as you will soon see. You will lean a ton from them, I sure have.
    Welcome and enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum. You'll have to make plans to attend the Pittsburgh fest in Zelie on July 30th.

  • tbk420tbk420 Posts: 70
    I would have gotten a demo egg from the EggFest, but I'll be on vacation 7/30. :(

    But I'm sure I'll make other ones.

    Welcome to the 'religion' (as a friend of mine calls it) :woohoo:
    Will we see you at Pittsburgh Eggfest 7/30?

    Welcome to the cult. Apron and secret decoder software will arrive shortly. If there is an Eggfest close to you it's worth to go and observe and taste and ask questions. Lots of eggeheads out there ready to answer questions and make at least two suggestions for every question.

    Thanks Gary - unfortunately, I'm on vacation at that time. But I'm sure I'll be at future Fests! :)

    Hey tbk! Glad you found your way over here. You are gonna love it. Next we need to get Dyal over here. QJuJu is here as well, but posts under a different name. Think Kenny is here too.

    tbk posts on and recently started a thread about thinking about getting an egg. Looks like we convinced him. :)
