New to the group and new to BGE. I have been using a Weber Performer,
22.5” One Touch, Smokey Joe, and Smokey Mountain for all my grilling needs.
Wife recently purchased the Large BGE for me and after two cooks I moved the
Webers to the other side of the patio and built a table. I am eager to start
trying out some new BGE Recipe and Cooks; any suggestions to a new BGE user are
welcomed.

  • Congrats and welcome,

    BGE does it all so well. Make one of your fav's off of the Performer or the SM, compare the cooks. The people are a wealth of knowledge for you, just ask. We've all had the short learning curve. My deck now is just eggs. 

    Remember to let the lump burn clean! 
    I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar.
  • Welcome Egggeber
    I got my egg in July and the forum group has been awesome!
    I love my egg and so do my friends... Enjoy!

    I used a Smokey Mountain for 8 years before I switched to a XL last summer.  I switched because the BGE handles unfavorable weather (wind, rain, blizzards, freezing temps, etc.) much better and I do a lot of winter cooking (Wisconsin).  Very happy with the switch.  I sold all my other grills.

  • Thanks for the responses and links, I will definitely be checking those out. Already did a whole chicken and some of the best steaks I have ever had. Loving the switch. Anyone know a good place to sell a couple webers?

    Lots of good info across the board.  BTW-if you search here and can't find what you are looking for-check out the search on the above site-not much of a filter but lots of info from those who have years of eggsperience.  Used to be the affilitated BGE site but that all changed several months ago.

  • Jeez....do we not read when threads were posted before we respond?...this guy started a thread in Nov saying he is new, and we're still welcoming him?
  • GrannyX4GrannyX4 Posts: 1,476
    And he's not posted since.

    MQ, that is something Tweev would notice and say. Are you related?

    Took mine into work as our office is in an 1890's Victorian house.  If somebody is slow and the weather nice, they get BBQ duty and have to go get food and make lunch.  If it is a light day for most of us, the food run includes a couple six packs.
