Well, I've done it - my large BGE and toys will be delivered soon. Your advice and enthusiasm has been awesome. Now I can only wait and dream (drool) until my first cook. The burger post was timely for my start up and I can identify with some of the other "newbie" confusion and desire to impress the family first time out. [p]What I was looking for was some pointers / suggestions to basic knowledge (books or sites in addition to the forum) with explainations and step-by-step instructions for someone who wants to learn all about (but doesn't have the foggiest idea about) brining (?), beer butt (?) chicken, drip pans, and all of the terms that everyone on the forum seem to use and know intimately. [p]Love to read about cooking and looking forward to many new ways and things to cook with the BGE. (Hope to graduate from bugers and simple stuff to "real" BBQ chicken and pizza soon after BGE arrives). [p]Thanks in advance to all you BGE masters.
