  • Welcome to the obsession. Ask all the questions you want. That's what the forum is for. Take lots of pics of your food and post them. Looking forward to seeing your creations on the egg. Spend some time learning to control the temps. There is a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be on your way.

    Welcome! I just joined about a month or so ago, and folks have been very helpful here. 

    Remember the cardinal rule - no pics= didn't happen.

    Congrats!!! Welcome to the club... The entry fee is cheap compared to the ongoing dues ;)

    1 Egg... Get's you in

    And here is just some of the stuff that you'll eventually wonder how you ever egged without it...

    Swing Rack
    Adjustable Rig
    Woodford Reserve
    Weed Burners, Looftlighter
    Dizzy Pig
    Food processors, mixers, slicers
    Sous Vide
    Another Egg...
    Music system (i.e. Bose dock)
    Table, nest
    A new deck (I did this)
    A decent camera, lenses, etc.

    The list is almost endless. Good thing the warranty on the egg is too... It will be around long enough to drain just about every spare dollar you are willing to part with; while at the same time providing your family and friends great food and even better memories.

    Enjoy in good health!

  • Congrats.  I got mine as a wedding gift and I want to cook on it all the time.  So far I've cooked; whole chicken, chicken quarters, pizza, ribs, and pork tenderloin.  I'm wanting to try the turbo ribs soon as ribs are our favorite and I don't always have the time to do a slow smoke on them.
