First off I’d like to express my appreciation for this forum. I read hundreds of pages of posts prior to purchase and you’v saved me a lot of grief. My dentist had been singing the praises of BGE so, after investigation, I pulled the trigger and got a Large BGE. First thing I did was a beer can chicken with nothing on it just to see the results. It came out great! Since then there has been another chicken (roasted with salsa under the skin), chicken quarters with rub, a turkey that went with a grandson in college to make friends with. Today I did a round roast. It will spend the night in the fridge and get thin-sliced tomorrow for lunch meat. I had been holding onto my Weber Gold for direct until I did some killer burgers last night. Now I’m looking for some deserving household that would like a near-new Weber. I’ll keep my offset Brinkman because I can do two legs of lamb on it and that happens once a year for an event. I’ll keep my five-foot grill for an event that happens once a year. My backyard looked like a bar-b-q graveyard. Those not mentioned went away today. Thanks to this forum I held back some doo-dads, gizmos and pieces for use with the BGE.
My opinion so far:
Eggpensive! But at my age I may never by another ‘Q.
This does it all with remarkable stability and a great community.
I want to do some beans from scratch. No canned beans. I can’t find anything on the net but I ain’t a computer whiz. I’d also like to do a pot roast on the egg, any suggestions?
