New guy here. Just wanted to say hi. My wife and I just got a large egg a week and a half ago. We are waiting for the arms, cover, and plate setter to come in. We bought a small kitchen island with a stainless steel top. I've cooked several meals so far with only one blister! My wife joined here as well. We are looking forward to having fun and cooking some great meals.

    Dinner tonight (some from the BGE cookbook): chili-spiced pork tenderloin with caramelized blackberry sauce, roasted corn with blue cheese & ancho chile, summer salad greens with Dijon caper dressing, and peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Also, skinny margaritas. And cooler, less humid weather for cooking outdoors!

    Thanks everyone. Here's a picture of our new egg with the island on our covered patio. The sliding glass door in the background goes into our master bedroom and is normally not used.

    Welcome to both of you.  Great first cook.  Agree with @double, great set up outside the bedroom.  That will come in handy for your first overnight cook.

    I took a picture for you. It's a bit out of focus as I used my phone to take it after drinking a couple of margaritas.

    Thanks everyone. I look forward to learning how to use this beast. Can't wait to do a long smoke on a brisket or pork shoulder.

    You just passed the final test.  I am voting a straight "Cozmo" ticket on the next election for Grand Panjamo of the Egghead Forum.

    great parking spot for your shiny new LBGE, you can easily watch for egg rustlers while you are pretending to be asleep...

  • Thanks for the very warm and hilarious welcome! Our first cook with company turned out great, even if Cozmo was enjoying the margaritas (or maybe because of that)! Well, I was drinking Maker's Mark and still managed to get dinner on the table.

    By the way, if you are using the BGE cookbook, I'd amend the chili spiced tenderloin with caramelized blackberry sauce recipe. First. you can't just pour room temp vinegar in the caramelized sugar--it spattered and immediately turned the sugar into a huge hard candy ball. I had to start over and heated the vinegar and chicken stock to boiling and poured a little bit at a time into the caramelized sugar, whisking all the while. And, I'd reduce the amount of liquid, as we all thought, that while it tasted yummy, the sauce was a little thin. But Cozmo and the EGG cooked the tenderloin perfectly and it tasted tender even warmed over today.

    Welcome aboard and by default if you are posting here then you have been drinking the Kool-Aid-mixture and quantity to be determined :)

  • Bjansen and Cozmo, welcome aboard. I have also done the same recipe although used cherry preserves instead of the blackberry. I had the same issue with the caramel mixture turning hard but as it heats up,it melts back down. And also agree that it is a little thin. Good recipe though and one of these days I will post the pics from my cook.

  • Yep... wanna see pics!
