Hi from Central Ohio

HibbyHibby Posts: 444
Hi. I'm new to the forum and just got my membership approval today. I recently sold a 22" Weber Smoky Mountain to help (small help) support an investment in a LBGE. I found a great dealer in Columbus (traveled past two other dealers to buy) and jumped in with both feet. I picked up as many accessories as I could afford including a digi-q (yet to use). I've so far only cooked a whole chicken breast from The Anderson's which was great. I've been smoking and cooking for years and have really wanted an egg for a long time. So happy to have one now and to have found a great forum to learn from.

    Just like cooking on a WSM except you have the ability to maintain a set cooking temperature.  Welcome to the club, looking forward to seeing some great foods..

    Hey now Skiddy! No prompting. I'm sure he doesn't need help to decide I'm a delightful personality.

    Hibby, Welcome aboard. I did the same upgrade as you from the WSM and have never regretted it. Lots of great information here so just fire away on the questions. Oh, and just ignore Fred. He and his fellow Wolverine fans are still sad about last year. GO BUCKS!!!

    Welcome Hibby. I'm a Weber convert too. You're going to love cooking on your BGE!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
