I am a newbie and this is my first post. I purchased my first BGE last week. I have wanted one for years and finally broke lose with the $$ (thank you American Express). Have some bbq and dutch oven experience but not much. Looking forward to learning a lot more about new new large BGE from you folks here in the forum. I am breaking it in for pizza. Started with Halibut steaks but we won't talk about that because I didn't take picture. Tightened the dome bands and did some pork ribs then tightened again. A few more low heat dishes and I will be ready for pizza. Lots of good help here, thank you! This site is the best!   chashans

    Welcome to the madness! Beautiful first cook, plating and photography! just remember not to over tighten until the egg has cooled down.

    Roger that! Thanks for this forum I was able to read most if not all of the cautions before starting to use the BGE. Appreciate your caution, thank you.

    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.

    Welcome aboard. Looking forward to seeing your food porn. No need to break in the gasket for pizza, you're just gonna fry it eventually anyway. Egg works fine without one.
