Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

New Egg in N Texas

It took some time to get approval to post, but mostly glad to be able to see the pictures in full size now!  I just wanted to drop a note in the forum that I am here and gleening info from you guys (and gals).  The forum came with recommendations from other BGE members that were on a boat forum I a BGE thread!  My egg is still in the box.  I was busy selling the boat and took advantage of a sale in Carrollton I couldn't pass up.  I didn't get a nest as I am planning a table.  I am intending to use nakedwhiz plans modified to lower the bottom shelf so as to take advantage of the space for enclosed storage with doors and drawers.  It will be a rolling cart with a granite top...I hope.  That is, if I can stomach the additional expense of that. 

Anyway, just wanted to say howdy, and apologize up front for the stupid questions to follow!  I am a complete noob at smoking or low and slow...never have done it.  I am a DIYer and like structure and following guidelines, so this is going to appeal to me, but I can see it takes practice!  I purchased the platesetter, grill gripper, grid lifter (they threw it in!), and ordered the Mavrick ET 732 dual probe thermometer along with a brown Thermapen that I found on sale from Thermoworks.  So I should be set to become an egghead and enjoy the fruits of my labor, so to speak.  We have been shedding pounds and are weight watchers too, but that doesn't mean you can't have good things, just in moderation!  I also found that forum within, so will visit for help in that department!  I am finalizing my table plans with all the revisions, and looking for a few days off in a row to "break ground" on it.  Thanks for being here, it is always easier to enter into a new adventure  when the path has been blazed and the guides are in place!  And you have already provided me with the desire and guidance to make it this far! 

Just far enough north of DFW to be "rural"...and close enough to be urban, depending on my mood.
