First I want to make sure I am using correct Forum etiquette. After adding my nickname I see that there is at least one other that is very close (Smokin Joe, without the '). Should I change mine? How do I do that?
On to the topic, I picked up my new BGE at Waldorf Eggfest Saturday. I could not have hoped for a more fun, gracious and interesting group to spend the day with. I was given lots of very good advice, got some great recipe ideas and was treated to a lot of amazing food. Highlights were the leg of lamb, pork tenderlion and the ABTs. I was too overwhelmed to take note of who was feeding me, but the leg of lamb was served by the folks just in front of the front doors and I think the pork tenderlion was a late in the day effort by Wess. The ABTs, I believe were by Susie. Forgive if I'm way off on any of this, there was beer involved. I've already done a pork loin and two chickens. I overcooked the loin a bit and the chickens were perfect.
Big thanks to George who broke in my Egg and went above and beyond in cleaning it and helping me get it loaded in the truck. Morse "Hokie Smoke" also offered lots of great advice as did the Wilmers. This is a great forum, I will learn a lot and hope to contribute.[p]Joe
