Hey All,

My wife got me the best birthday present a Large BGE!!!!  Fired it up for the first time on Sunday and did ribs, chicken and baked a cornbread in the Egg with a cast iron skillet.  Looking forward to this weekend to really fire it up and do some pizza's.  But, I though this forum would appreciate my birthday cake that was made by my brother and sister in law...Check it Out!!!

    Isn't it great? My wife got me a large BGE and accessories for my birthday and my son built a table with large working area and shelves on the deck for my birthday, last month. I have cooked almost every day since. Sometimes twice!

    Happy Birthday, albeit a belated one. Must be nice to get such a great gift, although she probably figured you'd get one anyway so this way she killed two birds with one stone, or spatchcock'd 'em or whatever.
