Yesterday I used my large egg for the first time. When I started, it was misting. Fired up beautifully, got my wood chunks and pork butt on for a low slow smoke. An hour later it was pouring rain. Two hours later, snowing and sticking to the ground. The Egg is Awesome. The meat was pull-apart perfect when done. I'm learning and will tweak my methods. But for the first use--total success. I am an Egghead. Yay! Nineee p.s. Thanks to those who so quickly responded to my question of wood chunks vs chips.
