When I got my first egg it took me a while to find all the ‘stuff’ discussed here on the forum. What follows below are links to some of the sites with great information, recipes and goodies/accessories.

What you see below is not an all inclusive list and it is in no particular order. It is a good start and and will get you some quick valuable information. The following focuses on BGE Products and accessories, tools made by Forum Members. With that in mind if you come upon a site that should be included let me know.

Each of the following sites have great recipes and information. Some suggestions are provided, however, each site has much more to offer – recipes, tips, how too, tools. Take the time to visit and explore the sites below.

Most forum members will advise getting the Thermopen instant read. They are pricey but well worth the investment. There the MTC is also an option as long as you pick up the fast reading probe. Both are fast reading and extremely accurate.
- Thermapen one of the best investments for better cooks (don’t substitute to save $$) –
- MTC – (get the 2 sec read probe)

- Maverick ET-73 (abt. $40 online) Pit & Food probes with remote & alarms – I really like mine, some members don’t like them at all. -

Appears to be partially Egg related – all recipes will work on the egg, for that matter most any recipe will work on the egg:
- USDA Safe Food Handling Fact Sheets -
- Tim M’s -
- Dalton Grill & Smoke -

Enjoy, Kent
