    No mentioned the most important thing yet:

    A good sense of humor! It is imperative here. We are a collective bunch of 13 year olds full of toilet humor.

    1. Thermapen (multiple uses besides just cooking on egg) 2. Plate setter (gotta have a way to cook indirect) 3. Baking Steel (google it, or look it up on forum) 4. HiQue grate (much better air flow, less chance of fire going out) 5. Woo2 (I have a medium. Gotta have a way to do raised direct cooks) 6. Digiq2 (This thing is extremely accurate and I have heard great things about customer service) Welcome to the forum. I hope this helps. Be careful. This quickly becomes an eggdiction.
    Persistence and determination are omnipotent!

    1a)  Platesetter  1b)  probe thermometer  2-? other items that you want!  With the first two, you can virtually do all types of cooks successfully.

    +100 Thermapen, food is cooked precisely. I must say at the risk of being flamed, that the Kamado Joe heat deflector is a very good value solution. Covers the opening better than the BGE Platesetter and also provides a means to raise the grid to felt level for direct cooking. Yes, there are other options, but not at this price. IMHO

    1. Some way of starting the egg (heat gun in my case)

    2. Some way of holding the egg (nest in my case)

    3. Some way of cooking indirect (platesetter in my case)

    4. Some way of measuring temperature of food (thermapen in my case)

    5. Some way of cooking on a flat surface (cast iron pan w/o handle in my case)
