We bought our BGE memorial day weekend and I have been cooking on it about 3-5 times a week since. I absolutely love it. I have always cooked on charcoal and went through several webers and a large brinkman and they all get replaced due to rust. Also, they don't hold their heat too well.
I started reading this forum early May and tried to register but for some reason there was a big delay before they would finally call me "member". One of the best things I have done on the egg was a texas style brisket- thanks to all the tricks I have learned on this forum. It didn't turn out the best of any of the food I have made (IMO) but it was definitely the best experience. My daughter graduated from 8th grade on June 3. We put the meat on the egg at 10:30 PM Jun 2 and stayed up next to the egg just talking and tweaking the temp- that time together was priceless. There is something about smoke and meat cooking... I went to sleep at about 1AM and she stayed up till about 2:30 and I got up at about 6. We hung around the house and took the meat off the grill at 195 degrees at about 3 PM, wrapped it in foil and a towel and put it in a cooler and went to her graduation ceremony at 4. We had friends over at 7 for the feast and everyone loved that brisket (I thought it was dry but very tasty). It was a flat because I couldn't find a packer in Charleston SC. This past weekend I found a place that sells them (Teds Butcher Block) and I am going to try it again a few weekends from now when my daughter comes home from summer camp. We'll have the same friends over- they love being our brisket guinea pigs!!
I am taking the day off from work today and am planning on cooking a beer can turkey starting around 3. It has been brining since Sunday.
