So, I went to my younger brothers house last night and was there for almost his maiden voyage on his new large BGE. He will be posting under the name "Swamp Donkey". I must say the food was excellent and the presentation was, well, different. I called to see if he needed anything and he said he was all set....had everything which was needed. We got there and he was just finishing up some coconut shrimp. He finished them up and on a paper plate walked around the deck serving the 8 of us (myself, my wife and our son, my mom, himself and his girlfriend and 2 daughters). Next up was some grilled swordfish. Once again this came out excellent but was presented in the same manner....walking around with a plate serving pieces of swordfish....just pick up with your fingers and eat. Finally there was the new york strip steak...same presentation. He, I think, jokingly said he only had one fork and, looking around, maybe he was telling the truth!! He ended the night by getting the egg up real high, 800 or so with flames, and people made smores. All in all the food was excellent, company was great and the beer was cold!! All was, to quote Bill and Ted "most excellent". The only thing he really needs to work on is not messing around with the dampers, and to keep the lid shut. He opens it a lot losing heat, but that'll pass with time.

    The Naked Whiz,
    I think either would work for him! Funny how his handle does sound like a rub!
