Was fortunate enough to come across a great deal on a new Large Egg over the weekend, and now I am officially an Egg Head. I've been checking out the forum and seeing alot of great tips and tricks for different foods which is great. I did have one question...what is the best way to "learn" your egg as far as temp control. Is it worth filling the firebox with lump and giving it a couple runs (under 350 of course for the gasket) to learn the different DFMT and lower vent positions or would it be better to just slap some food on and go the trial and error route. I've had a friend of mine tell me to just get one of the Digi Q's or other devices but I want to learn "old school" and not have to rely on some device. I'm looking forward to many post on here and learning some great cooking techniques.
