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

First Cook

Got my Egg yesterday from a Fest and brought it home.  Got out there this afternoon to cook some ABTs for our neighborhood party.  Fired it up with one cube (came with the egg, will probably buy a propane benzo) and stayed close by shooting for 350.  Let it run for a bit, playing with bottom vent and upper to find that range.  Did pretty good at getting it stable at 3 fiddy and then put the plate setter in.  Watched and expected the drop. Let it run about another half hour and it settled back in at the desire temp.  Put the ABTs on, little drop, but let it ride and sure enough got stable again. 

Pulled them at an hour (so proud of myself for not opening the lid until I was ready to pull them) and they were a hit!  Played with the temp for a few more hours; ran it up to 450 and got it stable.  Think I'm gonna do a spatch tomorrow.  Thanks everyone for all the info y'all regularly put up.  Sure saved me some heart burn today.  Pays to come up from low to where you're going and not freak out of small things.  I found the camera only to find out the battery was dead.  Photos tomorrow I promise.
