I have owned my egg for a couple of years and like a typical guy I didn't read any instructions or do any research. The result was many charred and ruined pieces of meat! It got so bad that every time I announced to my wife and sons that we were having burgers or steak they would say "...um are you going to cook it on the egg or the gas grill?" because they knew dinner was doomed if the answer was egg! I ruined two nice briskets, many racks of ribs, and countless chicken breasts, burgers and steaks.
Recently I found this forum and began reading, learning and buying eggccessories. Finally I got up the nerve to try a low and slow pork shoulder. Got up at 5:00 am and 14 hours later my wife, my boys, and myself were all amazed at the juicy, tender, delicious pork goodness that lay before us!!! Thank you all for this great place!
