Had my table stained, prepped, and accessorized with an empty spot for the LBGE - until today, when it was delivered in all its glory and placed in its new home! I've got a fire going as we speak so that I can tinker with temp adjustments and learn a little about it prior to its maiden voyage tomorrow night, a Simon and Garfunkel'd spatchcock chicken that's already spatched and sitting in the fridge waiting for its big moment! Life is good.
Two quick questions: I burned today and noticed that smoke went from white to clear in about 15 min - assuming that's what I'm looking for to let me know that cooking can begin? Also - I have the regular grate on and the BGE raised grate on top of it (3" above). Isn't it the case that the cooking temps on the top grate will be a bit higher than on the bottom?
Thanks! Looking forward to firing it up for real tomorrow night.
