    congrats on the new egg!! word to the wise make sure you stay under 500 for the first 8-10 cooks to give your gasket adhesive some time to set or "cure":::


    here is a pork loin recepie:::


    Pork, Loin, Stuffed, Roast, Florentine, Wise One


    Ingredients
    1 boneless pork loin roast (3-5 lbs)
    1 Tbs dried rosemary
    3 cups spinach
    3 Tbs Mustard (Dijon or Coarse grind)
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/4 cup feta cheese



    Procedure
    1 In a bowl mix spinach, rosemary, mustard, and feta cheese. Mix until well coated.
    2 Untie the pork roast and unroll. If necessary slice along the bottom to get more surface area.
    3 Take mixture and put on top of flattened pork loin.
    4 Roll pork loin into a tube shape and retie with bvutcher twine.
    5 Brown slightly using direct heat for two to three minutes on each side (may want to turn two or three times)
    6 Cook indirect at 350 degrees until it reaches 160 internally.
    7 Allow to rest for 15 mnutes. Slice and serve.

    Some people get the hang of holding a steady temperature right away, but a lot of folks don't. So jumping in to do a brisket might be a little hard. Spatchcock'd chicken is really a snap, and could probably be done at the same time as a pork loin.

    Do a google on "Naked Whiz" for some good basic info on using your Egg.

    "T-Rex'd" steaks are always a hit, too.

    Have fun, the Egg repays any effort aimed at it

    Congrats and welcome. Stick around here and you'll get more recipes and ideas than you think you can possibly cook.

    Of course, you'll end up trying many of them and develop a few favorites.

    Congrat's on joining the best club in the world. ;) B)
    I would agree on not going above 500 the first few cooks it can really do bad things to the gasket :(
    Spatchcock chicken is one of my favorites :) I also love AZRP's "The Chicken". B) Of course you can never, ever go wrong with some ribs or a nice pork butt ;) B) :whistle:
