    Shooting with your camera or in the ballistic sense?

    Both. I get paid to shoot guns at stuff and the photo shooting is for fun.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Your youth must have been a long time ago. I don't know what NPQ is.

    In the spirit of leaving "lurking land" I've decided to share photos of some of my experiments since firing up the egg. I'm trying to learn my egg's personality and characteristics. First, is my table - built with scrap lumber and tiles. Then,there's the butt/brisket tip, pizza, and beef ribs, etc. -  all to varying degrees of success. Although not perfect product, everything has tasted quite good and keeps me rolling! Thanks to all the participants on the Forum for all the tips, recommendations, and ideas that everyone has posted!

    Wow, I never imagined a bbq forum could get so tense.  I mean the gun forums sure, but bbq??  I'm a new, greener than green rookie.  Just went off the deep end and got an XL.  I wanted to do slow and lows so I soon realized I wanted a CyberQ.  Now we'll see if I can get some skills.  I tend to lurk unless I think I can contribute.  I can blather ignorant bs if preferred, but figured I'd try to learn first?

    @ jedawa-Welcome to the cult, you are beyond club stage.  Be mindful of the Kool-Aid.  Nothing wrong with your approach-we all learn from the good and the not-so-good cooks here.  Plenty of people willing to help with any issue. Enjoy the journey.

    Isn't the plural of fish fishes?  Lolcat speak doesn't follow normal literary rules....

    I like fishes, they taste delishes!

    Thanks for the welcome lousubcap.  I actually got it in late May, did a couple pork butts, then had to shut it down for a burn ban, argh!  Ban was lifted this morning and I'm back at it.  Gonna try to sear and dwell some thinner pork loin chops tonight.  Thinking 3 min a side then flip the rig and dwell til 150ish?  I have no idea on dwell time, we'll see.  But even with my zero skills and experience those pork butts were amazing, so I'm excited...  (of course I got the adjustable rig combo too)

    @jedawa-Glad you are clear of the ban-don't know your location but hopefully the worst you had was the ban and nothing much more serious.  You mention dwell-whatever you do to get to the dwell temperature-please do not shut the vents on the BGE and let it come down in temp and dwell with the vents shut.  This causes the sooty taste that really puts people off (and rightfully so) of sear and finish cooks.  I sear with the dome open (a good bed of hot lump coals),  then set the lower vent and DFMT to around the 400*F setting and wait til the dome thermo gets about there and finish.  Much better taste-why do I know -I did the dwell with closing the vents one time only-never again. 

    BTW-here's are great ceramic grill reference-

    @lousubcap- Thanks again, that vent advice was literally in the nick of time.  I would have sooty chops right now otherwise.  At 3 min per side I only dwelled for another two or so minutes.  Pulled at a high 170 but they're still delicious.  Was out of apple chips but the hickory tastes great.  Even my screw-ups are delicious!
