New Egg

Thanks for the responses guys. I did call BGE about the little white dots and they said to take the top back to the dealer for exchange. The dealer didnt want to exchange it, but I had him call BGE while I was there, and after talking to them he said OK. The new top has other imperfections but that is just nature of the beast when dealing with ceramics I guess. At least it does not have the white dots. I am going to be using it for the first time tonight and the excitment is building already. I have never felt this way before using any other grill for the first time. I am going to start simple with ribs and potatoes. I dont know which rib recipe yet as there are so many to choose from on these pages.
My next decision is where to put the egg on my deck. My house has white vinyl siding and originally I was going to put the egg near the house. Is all the smoke going to stain the house? If so, how far away from the house should I put it. Thanks, Billy

    <p />Billy, great choice on the ribs, but it's almost time that they 'be on the BGE'. The picture tells the story of my 1st ribs on the BGE - the link is to Tim M's site - the place where I found the method when I 1st tried. As you progress, also check out my site at [p]Don't know anything about the paint thing. Good luck tonight!

    I have my egg on the deck just outside of the dining room slider and under a roof overhang. Works great, but sometimes I need to roll the eggtable out further on the deck 'cause the wind is blow'n the smoke inside the house, big time. I don't have white siding, but I sure would think that it would cause a problem. That smoke does a number on anything it comes in contact with. Not saying that it couldn't be cleaned, but that would take time away from grill'n & smok'n on your new egg! [p]Have a ball and enjoy your new egg![p]Nu-Guy

    Billy, your feelings about your house will change dramatically after egging a few times. Everybody has a house,, but only "we" have a BGE. My house is white vinyl too and under my deck (where my egg nests) is a white vinyl ceiling. Vinyl is from man and technology. The egg is from the "Grilling Gods". And besides,, after a year of egging, you can mix a little dishwashing liquid in a pail of water and that, along with a carwash brush will make the vinyl look like new again.. Let's keep them priorities properly aligned. H.A.G.W. (havagrateweekend)
