So got my first cook in the books chicken breast,wings and corn the family loved it!!!!

One question tho how long should it take the egg to shut down to zero once snuffed with cap and vents shut? I was cooking direct at 400 for 1.5 hrs or so.

Few pics for you.oh and I love it already!!!image

    Nice first cook. Welcome aboard. I shut down my Egg an hour or so ago after a 500 degree pizza cook and it's still 300. Remember, If Egg gets down to zero you need to calibrate your thermo, unless cooking up north in winter. My Egg was almost 100 today before even lighting it.

    Welcome to the cult from Texas, home of the brisket and the worlds best BBQ. You have passed the initiation. Your path the grilling enlightenment will require the singeing of arm hair and eyebrows, smelling of smoke for at least 12 hours and finally having your neighbors, friends and family asking what you are cooking next. I like the varnished finish on your table.

    AR is a neat piece of equipment it's pure quality and does what is supposed to well.So glad you guys accepted me even tho I was eggless for so long.
    Next question is to cover or not to cover ....not so much for the egg itself but for preserving the table???

    If it's out in the rain and sun, I recommend covering.  And a sealer on the wood.

    It has three costs of spar urethane guess a cover is a good idea too to protect the wood.

    I think the finish will last longer. UV and precip is tough on varnish.

    Great first cook with AR to boot!  I don't cover my eggs but I have no tables to protect.  Be careful with the ceramic cap when you remove the cover, it's easy to drag it off the dome with the cover.

    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.
