I posted earlier that it's been 20 years since I had an egg. It was one of the brittle ones referred to in the booklet, the dome cracked and I was leary of putting$800 back into one.

BIG MISTAKE. My first cook tonight was beer can chicken with sweet potatoes, asparagus and Vidalia onion Kisses.

I'd forgotten how fast and how well these things cook. But I'm preaching to the choir.

  • Nah, the chior has practice every week. It's always nice to be re-freshed. Glad your here. Cook well. Smiles to you.
  • Welcome fellow WHO DAT. A wise EGGer once said and egg cost more than it should, but is worth more than you paid.
  • cajuncook,

    Another Who Dat!!!!!!!! Welcome, and enjoy the egg. I just got finished the 3rd cook on mine & I'm loving it!
  • Welcome to Eggdom.

    I thought it was expensive in 96 when I bought my first one! Of course, I now think it's my best purchase of all time.

    Wait til you see all the fun WhoDats that hang here. You are in for some great fun!

    Enjoy your egg!

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