New Forum Member Saying Hello (w/ Pictures)

Hello to all the forum members here. My name is Jim and I live in N.E. Massachusetts. I've been lurking on here for the last 6 months and got my Large BGE in August. I had planned on my new Egg joining my 6 burner gas grill and offset horizontal barrel smoker, but I have only used the gas grill once in the last 2 1/2 months. I have used my new Egg nearly 70 times in the same time period and I now see it replacing both the grill and smoker and I plan to get a second Egg. So I have fully joined the cult. 

I love my new Egg and thanks to the help of the posts here I've been learning how to use it. I have not direct grilled on a charcoal grill before so I still have lots to learn there. Low and slow & high temperature indirect cooks I am pretty comfortable with. The temperature control on the Egg is amazing. Direct grilling at 400-500 degrees I am still working on my techniques. 

Besides Grilling and Smoking my other hobby is photography. I've had a website for the last 7 years which brings together the two hobbies, It is listed in my signature below. If you like food porn, please pay it a visit. There is also a blog, but until August of this year it didn't cover the Egg. Speaking of food porn: I'm going to post some pictures below of some of what Ive been doing on the Egg.

Thanks again to all of the great folks here that have shared all of their valuable insights.
