We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

getting my first (large) BGE this week
I know it will come with the plate setter and the cradle but I'm looking for whatever else I should be getting (even as an extra) . i see references to a spring loaded lid, (and have no idea if that's standard or an option and how important it is)
I also saw some sort of cart / handcart / lifting assembly somewhere that I gather attaches to the cradle but I can't find it again to save my life ... nor do I know how valuable it is.
I see all manner of goodies on Amazon, like a stainless fire grate or sommat and a shovel shaped like the fire chamber, etc.
can any of you folks comment for me on what of the above i should be looking for (or not) and or other stuff that I've missed.
My main applications will be slow smoking (not in direct flame, for pulled pork and pulled lamb) but i'm sure that list will expand.
Any advice will be gratefully accepted. thanks in advance! jccampb
