First two egg cook suggestions?

Received a new medium egg for christmas to be an accessory to my Large.  Any ideas what my first two egg cook should be?

    Ribs and Pulled Pork are easy and crowd favorites.  I've only been Egging about four months and those were two of my earliest cooks.  This site, plus Nakedwhiz.com and AmazingRibs.com are great resources.

    Thanks for the suggestions CPAEKTX, but perhaps I wasn't clear.  I've had a Large Egg for two years and have been cooking on them for longer.  Now I have gotten a medium so was looking for cooks that compliment each other that require vastly different temperatures or setups.

    I know it sounds like a waste of charcoal but I roast steaks on the large and then finish them off at a very high temp on my small. Saves you waiting for the Egg to heat up or cool down. Reverse T-Rex.

    I got my 2nd large so I could egg chili and corn bread at the same time.

    I do veggies on one while doing meat on the other when they need to be done at different temps.  I do regular dinner on one while smoking low and slow on the other.  Anything that has to be done at different temperatures are candidates for the second egg.  Dinner on one - desert on the other.

    I'd recreate a thanksgiving dinner. Get a bird on the large, then some mac'n'cheese, stuffing, potatoes, etc going on the medium.

    I do the exact same thing but sear on my large using a spider and small CI grid. Then roast on my small at the felt line.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
