Greetings - first time egg owner here and first time poster to the forum as well.
I'm anxiously awaiting delivery of my new large egg. Assuming the (hopefully) brief return to winter we're experiencing here in MN doesn't get in the way, it should be delivered tomorrow. Unfortunately tomorrow night the fiance and I have reservations for dinner to celebrate our anniversary so that means I won't get to fire up the egg tomorrow. The following day I'm heading to TX for five days at a conference so it's looking like I'm going to have to wait until I return to try this thing out. As I tend to be the instant gratification type, it's going to be a tough five days!
My hope is to do something for dinner on the egg the day I return from TX next week. This leads me to my question. From what I've read, it sounds like the first time you use your egg (or the first couple of times? not sure), you need to keep the temp at around 350F to allow the gasket to cure. I'm looking for suggestions as to dishes I could do for dinner at 350F. Alternatively, would it make more sense to just fire up the egg, let it go at 350F for a while to cure, then let it get up to temp so I could do something like steaks?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
