Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

First meal on the Egg

I followed the advice of many with Wise gurus on this forum and started with hamburgers.
It's hamburger from grass fed beef so it doesn't have as much fat as most hamburgers.
Only had my Maverick so I used the probe on an average size hamburger and cooked to medium. Thermo pen has not arrived yet.
Used cherry wood chips. Maybe could've used more but again following advice and erred on perhaps a little less than too much.
According to the maverick the grate temperature ran around a constant 400°. Surprising that it often seemed to be hotter than the dome temperature Which seem to be contrary to most of what I have read so far.
Family like them and wife even had a second which never happens So I guess it was a successful start. Thanks again for a lot of the advice which helped me get through this first night . I think what's up store for round two will be a chicken of some kind --haven't decided which kind yet
