Hello Everyone!![p]This site is spectacular!! I just bought my BGE, and it is being delivered tomorrow. I was eggcited when I made the purchase on Sunday, but since reading all your posts, I can barely contain myself.[p]I'm gonna give humpty a test run tomorrow, and the following day, I have about 20 guests comming for a cookout where the menu will be standard BBQ faire: hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken, with some grilled veggies. Any tips from the Eggsperts to help a newbie look like an EGGstrordinary chef after the first couple tries? I am particularly interested in tips of the KISS variety (keep it simple stupid) since those are most easily applied by me.[p]Regards to all,

    Eggcitable One,[p]I put some thaughts together some time back and made them available to all on my website. You will find the video that come with the Egg somewhat helpful but don't read, use or keep that manual/cookbook. Ask here first.
    Check the link below and look for the New Users Section[p]Tim

    Eggcitable One,[p]Welcome to the family and forum.[p]Your Egg cooks its very best when cooking with the dome closed. Since you can't see the meal, you will tend to fret about its progress. The cooks are done more by timing than looks. You will quickly adjust.[p]KISS principle: If it looks like it is close to done, it probably is slightly overcooked. Remove when you say it needs a few more minutes.[p]Spin

    Spin,[p]That's some great advise! The egg is a bit different from anything I ever used before![p]Smokey
