Well, as promised I got up early on Saturday morning to spend some time with a brand new Egger.

We started out with a pristine new Egg, and proceeded to put some color in that baby!


Dale getting a look at things

Got her fired up and talked about settling in on at temp before adding any food. Here we are shooting for 250, and made some Bloody Marys to pass the time. I felt like I was at Frozen Fest all over again. Nothing like booze in the morning!

Once we settled in at 250, we added a platesetter, pizza stone, feet, and CI DO. This was a lesson it took me a long time to learn. Adding all that cold stuff will bring the temp down, it'll come back up on its own. DON'T TOUCH!!!!!! We came back up to 250, and opened things up a bit. Going for 450 to bake a little bread. Here we are 30 minutes in, lid comes off.

Next we decided to roast a whole pineapple as seen here on the forum a couple weeks ago. It was a huge hit...we may try injecting it with rum next time.
My Punker Dee Dop Diddle Diddle Doo, was having a great time (they have a little less snow there than we do here, and he loved being outside. King of the Mountain I think is what he was trying to acheive here.
Then our guests came over. The last time this crew was together at Dale's house (8 years ago) he made brownies and overcooked them. When Karen (seen later) went to cut into her dessert, it was so hard that the brownie, upon being stabbed by a fork, resisted and shot across the room. Brownies were served again, and safety glasses were provied. Here is Indonesian Satay (Little Steven recipe), prepped on Thursday (thanks Beanie) grilled on Saturday.
Here are some chickens standing at attention
And the happy customers!
I think I'll add the word LONG and a warning in my title. Great day, great laughs, and can't remember everything we ate, if there werent' photos, I have no way of recalling. :blush:

    Great looking cooks Staci. Do you believe I've been eggin for almost two years and have never baked a loaf of bread in my egg :unsure: Guess I need to try it. Maybe some Jalapeno bread would have been good last night with our chili.

    Hey Staci!! I made it up to Marshalltown and pick up his last egg he had available. That was the most misserable drive to make in the middle of a blizzard.

    Hey Staci,

    Looks like a good time had by all including the food.

    I see you have a little melting going or was that the rain I'm getting today? :laugh:
  • WokOnMediumWokOnMedium Posts: 1,376
    It was melting. Dale has worked really hard to get his driveway clear of ice and snow, and he spent a little of the "stabilizing" time shoveling some slush away. I spent that time drinking. :laugh:

    At my house the snow pack in my northfacing driveway has only built up since sometime in early December. It seems hopeless!

    The rain might take some snow down with it?!?!?!?
  • Pumpin the pineapple with rum sounds interesting - pina colada on the hoof :)

    Looks like a great time to me.
  • :laugh: nice color that new BGE is takin' on, Staci ;) ---
    only thing missin' is the shot of the Egged Brownies :kiss:
    Looks like a real fun time was had by all!

    Glad you didn't let down your IceFesters === Bloody Mary Mornings are a true testiment for a hard core Egghead :woohoo:

    Planning on comin' to OKC???
  • I love it that you cooked bread for the very first cook!! Now you have shown what the egg can do right up front. It looks like a fun (but COLD)day to me.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    That was what I was trying to do. The guy in the pic with his wife and daughter was thinking he'd buy and offset because it was more versitle than my Egg. I asked him if he had ever had bread baked on an offset. :P

    Dale was pretty impressed with all we did that day. I think he's a believer.

    It was a cold day, but mild, so being outside was kinda nice...maybe not for a Floridian, but nice.

    I gotta tell ya, I didn't even think to Egg the brownies (headslap).
  • Looks like it was a Great Time
