I have been eyeballing BGE for a couple of years and finally pulled the trigger this weekend.
A special thanks to Grillnut at Norcross Ace Hardware. I go there for other stuff and was excited to see them start to carry the BGE and accessories. Got the BGE, some Dizzy stuff, and a few accessories at a competitive price. Was delivered and setup that very day. Over the top, knowledgeable service.
Also special thanks to this board for all the advice that makes it possible for a newby to cook right off the bat.
I did a drunken chicken thingy and it turned out pretty good for the first try. Had a hard time getting the temp regulated which brings up a question. I lit the lump, closed the lid, had the top open and the bottom vent open full, and before I know it the temp is flying past 750. Took forever to get back below 500. Should I shut things down before the temp gets to the desired level ( 350 )?
