Seasoned Egg headers,
Husband and I have ordered the XLBGE with nest, nest handler, composite tables, & plate setter. While we wait to hear back from dealer, I have signed up for the forum and been reading around to get some idea of other necessities we may be needing. Getting around the forum has been a little difficult since I do not belong to many and find each totally different in nature. I wasn't sure where to post this discussion so, if I am in the wrong topic, point me in the right direction. In reading, I am under the impression we are going to be needing a digital thermometer (?), possibly a charcoal chimney to start coals (?) and did I read somewhere about first cooks being low to get the gasket to seal properly(?) So, without overloading this with all my Q's, just asking for some sound advise about getting started and some steering to avoid a few of the more common mistakes for a couple of greenhorns to the BGE BBQ world.
First and foremost, am a bit nervous about the assembly. We live quite a distance from the nearest dealer so we will be putting it together ourselves at home. I gather from things I've read, that the video walks you through it pretty good. Just asking those who have done it successfully, "Are there any specific areas that can give you a problem and your advise on the matter please?" .. ..other than the obvious suggestion that a husband and wife should not attempt it without proper referee on site!!
