Just setup the BGE, can I cook on it tonight?
Man am I pumped! I just picked up the egg (large) last night and got it all setup. Can I cook on this baby tonight, or is there some type of prep that needs to be done first?
I looked though the manual and didn't find much on this, though I think I read on this forum somewhere that the first couple times you cook on it to not let it go above 350°F. Sound right?
Am I eating on the egg tonight, or should I spend a couple burns just making it setup correctly for years of good cooking? I don't mind waiting if I need to make it right. Any tips on the first few cooks?
