Got my Egg and dutch oven last summer. The peach cobbler recipe on the BGE website I found to be the best of several recipes I've tried. Best indirect with the lid off. I did the Food Networks Prarie Woman's green bean with tomato recipe on Christmas. Did the bacon and onions on the stove top and put the DO on the Egg direct as soon as the prime rib came off. Also no lid. Both came out great. The cobbler is perfect to put on after your other cooking so it cooks while you eat. It makes an awesome presentation to bring the DO to the table, set it on a couple of bricks, and serve desert right from it. Make sure to caution all not to touch it, may not be a good idea with younguns around.
Mythoughts are that generally you want the lid off to get the benefits of smoke, I've yet to cook with it on. If it's a recipe you would regularly do in the oven go indirect, if normally on the stove top go direct. I'm likely going to do the chile recipe I've ben doing on the stove top for years in the DO on New Years day. I'll go direct with no lid so it will pick up the smoke.
