Wanted to say hello to the forum and how much I appreciate all of the great information here. I just purchased a medium BGE and it was delivered yesterday. I'm looking forward to my first cook on it this weekend.

    Welcome Aboard! Your life is about to change :) :laugh: :silly: :woohoo:
  • Welcome to the forum. Tons of info on here!!! One question...Do you realize that this is only Tuesday and the "weekend" is 3 days away. That means you will be missing 3 days of Egging. :ohmy: :ohmy:
  • Welcome & Congrats!! You will not be sorry!!
  • Already has, Capt. Frank. Thanks for the nice welcome.
  • Thank you all for the great welcome.

    I'm thinking my first cook will be boneless chicken breasts. I marinate it in Zesty Italian dressing when I've made it on my gas grill. Can't wait to try it on the egg. Hate to wait until the weekend but I don't get home from work until it's almost dusk. Would prefer to take my time during the day on the first cook.

    I plan to cook direct and from what I've read, the egg temp should be 325-350, is that correct?

    So much to learn...

    As my little 14 year old niece would say: WOOT WOOT!! Always glad to have a new person on board ESPECIALLY with a Medium as we seem to be in the minority. :pinch: I have a small to go along with my Medium for sides but my Medium is my go to. Any thing related to Medium you need just let me know.

    Claudia I think you will find that Egg temp on MOST cooks has 1/3 to do with how the food turns out and actual meat temp has 2/3. Chicken breast will dry out faster than just about anything except maybe lean pork. Almost every one wants to over cook both. I like my chicken breast boneless about 145ish with a meat themometer.
  • Welcome. This is a great place to learn.

    Welcome - but what gives! - delivered today but you're waiting until the weekend? You've got Wednesday and Thursday at least before the weekend. A simple pork tenderloin can provide dinner TONIGHT!
  • Welcome. Show lots of Pics. And Enjoy your new EGG!
  • Welcome to the forum. I always get great advice here. I look forward to a day when I can actually contribute.
