I have had my eye on an Egg for sometime, just waiting for my gasser to run its course. Well my wife surprised me with a large Egg for Father's Day. I discovered this forum a couple of month's ago and used your wonderful information and links to research and basically make myself miserable until I actually got the Egg.
I cooked a couple of whole chickens as soon as I got the Egg home and setup. I cooked it at about 275 for maybe 2 hours (I forgot to look at what time I put them on the grill but I did monitor the temp of the chickens until they reached 170). Next time I will have to note start and stop times. Bottomline, the chickens were just perfect...super moist with a perfectly crisp skin. I was more impressed than I expected....so was my wife. I look forward to many more cooks.
Thanks for all the help this forum has been up to now. Hopefully I will be able to throw out some good ideas and contribute, but I imagine I will still be learning much from the real cooks on this forum.
Look forward to the conversations!
