Had my BGE two months. Here's what I've cooked so far ...

I've had my large BGE for about two months now, and I've been lurking on the forums for most of that time.  I thought I should go ahead and post about my experience so far.  I've done baby back ribs three times, pizza three times, pulled pork twice (once "turbo" and once low and slow), sausages twice, a whole chicken, chicken drumsticks, a packer brisket ("Travis" style), a pork tenderloin, rum beans, apple crisp, apple strudel, blueberry cobbler, and about 18 million chicken wings.  Some sample pics are below.  Thanks for having me.

Some things I've learned:
1. Get your temperature stabilized BEFORE putting on the food.
2. The brand of charcoal really does matter.
3. Too much smoke is not so yummy for cobbler.
4. Homemade sausages can explode.
5. DP Tsunami Spin is actually just crack cocaine disguised as a BBQ rub.
6. A fish rub (DP Raging River, salt free) + a beef rub (DP Cow Lick) = good pork rub.
7. A wireless thermometer is really handy.
8. I have an obsession with my egg.  I think about potential cooks a lot.  A LOT.

Things I haven't figured out:
