Hello eggers,[p]After reading this forum for a couple months and comparing what was coming off my weber grill to all the nice pictures I saw from the BGE posted here, I decided to take the plunge yesterday. My wife and I drove to Grove City, OH and bought their last Large BGE yesterday. I still need to get a few accessories, like the grill extender, I'm thinking about 2 of them, one to go under the main grill for a pizza stone as a heat deflector, and another to sit on top of the main grill for more cooking area.[p]I'm going to start my first cook tomorrow morning, as we're having about 30 friends over for the 4th. I went to the market this morning and I now have 2, 8lb boston butts and 6 racks of ribs. We plan on eating at 1 pm on the 4th. I'm going to put the butts on tomorrow morning at about 8 am, hopping they are done by 6 am Tuesday, so I can then put the ribs in the inverted rack and get them on, giving me about 5 to 6 hours to get them completed. Do you guys think I'm allowing enough time? The boston butts will be cooked according to Elder Wards step by step, and the ribs, well, I have to try Cat's ribs, since everyone raves about them. [p]Anyway, wish me luck and if any of you have any pointers, please let me know.
Looking forward to many many nice recipes and trying new and different things on the BGE. By the way, I hope to take pictures to post of my first cook and post for all to see.[p]Thanks,
