My XL BGE was delivered last week - WOW - this thing is amazing.

Thanks to all the posters on this site. I gathered an immense amount of very good info while "lurking" on this site.

  • Welcome to the cult, but don't go thinking that just because you now have a BGE, BC will soften its stand on wanting a share of oil revenues in exchange for a pipeline.....

    Seriously, enjoy it.

    Congrats - is this your first smoker?  What kind of charcoal are you using in Eggmonton?

    Two XL BGEs - So Happy!!!!

  • Yes - first smoker - I have always used a natural gas unit in the past. I will probably keep that one for ??????---a patio ornament ?

    Using BGE lump for now - but at over $30 per bag I am looking for options.

    @Firechief2-Welcome aboard and don't drink too much of the Kool-Aid too soon...regarding lump (and a great intro site) check out the below link-

    http://www.nakedwhiz.com/ceramic.htm Also since the search function here is weak at best-try google and start your query with "big green egg" and then topic-in this case "lump charcoal" and you should gets lots of hits.  Lump preferences here will  yield about as many answers/options as posters.  Try many and then decide what meets your parameters.

    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.

    I have an egger friend in Edmonton and he says that lump is as bad as you say. What does CT charge for Royal Oak out there? It's 14 bucks for 8 kilos in ON.

  • Congrats on the the new egg, +1 on the naked whiz lump data base.
  • Pics or it doesn't exist
  • Firechief, I like that you mentioned keeping your old gas grill around as a patio ornament. I have done something similar but by removing all of the internal components I'm able to use it as storage for some of my eggcessories!
