Posted this yesterday, but as any Newbie would, to the wrong forum - so here it is hopefully in the right forum...

Got the Egg on Father's day and have experimented with lot of recipes. Had my first long cook today with a low and slow Boston Butt (Elder Ward style) ... turned out excellent - after 9.5 hours the lump only look to have burned about 30% of what I loaded, efficient cook as well !!

    Welome! I got my egg for fathers day last year and it is the best gift I have received. My wife also thinks it's the best thing she ever got me :).

    Butt looks great and I'm sure it tasted as good as it looks.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Welcome to the Swamp.....GO GATORS!!!!
  • I got my large Father's Day 3 years ago. I was amazed how efficient they are. Put a Butt on and go to bed, no worries....

    Nice looking pork you got there!

    I also received a large BGE for Father's Day and my entire family thinks it is the best gift ever!! To date I have done a Butt, baby backs, pizzas, burgers, planked fish, fish tacos,ABT's,............ I even cooked ratatouille one night! Half of the fun is figuring out how to use my BGE instead of the stove or oven. I have relatives from Ireland coming for a visit and I can't wait to "show off" with the BGE! My daughters have already started a list of "must dos" on the is going to be a BLAST!!
