Just got my BGE.

Hell everybody. I just joined the forum after buying my BGE.

I scored a pretty good deal at the Iowa State Fair. Large BGE, Nest, Plate Setter, Ash Tool, Grate Grabber, 1 Box fire starters, and 1 bag charcoal...all for $850.

I just assembled the egg yesterday (8/25) and am looking forward to firing it up this week.

I look forward to reading your stories and recipes as well as sharing some of my own.

    Welcome from Wolverine Country! image

    Thanks. I was there in 2010. Tailgated at the golf course across the street from the stadium. Had an awesome time and the fans treated us very well considering we were in enemy territory.

    Welcome HAWKCARL! GO HAWKS! Hawk fan from MN here.  Nothing beats the BGE for gameday cooks. I hope we don't need too much "comfort food" to make it through this season. We're heading to Kinnick to see the opener this weekend. Plan to take some pre-egged tailgate deliciousness to reheat on Melrose.

    I'll be there this weekend too. I've been a season ticket holder since 1994, only missed 3 home games in that period of time. Also been to road games at Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Michigan, and both of the NIU games at Soldier Field.

    I'm glad you had a good time! Not many in Ann Arbor are two-headed monsters. Columbus, on the other hand...
