    I agree. That is super awesome to hear. Egging should be relaxing and awesome...not stressful. Enjoy the time. Enjoy your family. Enjoy your food. Every cook doesn't have to be master piece. Pretty much anything on the egg is better!

    Keep up the good work. It's nice to see you had good results. The learning curve on these eggs is sometimes steep and sometime shallow. With responses like your daughter's, it's always fun!

    I think I started over thinking and confusing allot of the cooks.  Going back to a basic "Grill" meal was good.  Trying to get fancy like cooking chicken wings like its an overnight brisket is crazy. 

    We'll found out I have to cook a brisket in a few weeks now as the Outlaws (in-laws) are coming into town for the weekend.

    Thanks again.

    Wow..... Just spent 15 mins reading through this full thread - what a great community!   Lots of good people,  lots of great advice. @robnybbq - glad you had some success. 

    I've had my egg for four days and have cooked on it three of them - long,  slow chicken cook, homemade pizza,  and tonight hot dogs (late day,  18 mins from lite up to done).  Like @r270ba and others have said,  best thing about egging for me so far (next to the quality of the food) has been enjoying the cooks!  Maybe I've been lucky,  but my LBGE lites quickly (just use paraffin stater in three spots), burns off the bad smoke,  and gets me to 300 - 400 in 15 or 20 mins. Still lots to learn and plenty of room for improvement, but I'm hooked and enjoying every minute of it. 

    Good luck to @robnybbq and thanks to everybody for the great tips. As they say,  a smart man learns from his mistakes;  a wise man learns from mistakes of others.

    Your egg is brand new, therefore the holes in the bottom plate are mostly wide open for air to pass. Remember this, because it will get slower and slower as they close up.  A freshly cleaned egg always comes to operating temperature fast!
