I am doing it.  Firing the egg up tonight for the first time.  Decided to make cookies as I don't care if they don't turn out and I can focus on learning the eggs personality.  Hope y'all are all well and the weather is better than in NC.  Happy weekend egging!

    I knew cookies would get some odd looks, but the rationality makes sense.  Thanks for the support!

    You may be off by around 12 hours-cookies and beer are the "breakfast of champions" but full marks for such an adventurous first voyage!

  • Very educational first run, and tasty too.  If y'all haven't tried cookies on a stone, you should.  Be aware that the texture will be crunchier or crispier due to the way the stone works.  I am thinking I should've maybe taken them off a minute or two earlier. Suggestions?

    Great first cook and nice cheap way to learn the personality of the Egg. Can't beat cookies.

  • SkinnyV, I am sorry but I didn't understand all of your post.  Forgive me, I am new.  Just not down with all the lingo yet. :)
