We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I just got my bge for father's day and don't know what to cook first> Any suggestions? Do you have to use a drip pan when cooking? I could use some beginners advice!

    Tom,
    Tim M's and Gfw's websites are very helpful and informative. With pictures, and even a newbie section. I don't have the links handy, but I believe they are in the links section. Maybe one of them will chime in.[p]Pork tenderloins seem to be a popular first cook...and always turn out great. Cook direct over the coals, at 350 or so, flipping every 15 minutes or so. A meat thermometer helps greatly! Pull it off at 145-155 internal temp, and let rest 10 or 15 minutes. Fork tender and delicious.[p]Have fun! and don't hesitate to pop back if you have any more questions.

    Tom, welcome to the BGE forum. [p]The best advice will be given here on the forum - recipes are available in the recipe section. Tim M (http://www.tm52.com/bge/) has a 'New BGE Users Picture Section' which you may find very useful. Please also feel free to browse my site by clicking on the link.[p]No you don't always have to use a drip pan, but for some low/slow cooks it really helps. For a 1st cook, how about a few cheeseburgers and sausages - great way to break in the BGE. Of course, you could also find a few 1.5 inch steaks. [p]What size BGE? Let us all know how it goes!

    <p />Nature Boy, Absolutely great idea! Don't know why I didn't think of the PT - just had one the other night - always turn out about perfect.
