My parents got me a Large for Christmas.  Have been wanting one for years since I first saw them on the first season of Pitmasters.  Dad works for the local Egg dealer, so I have helped out a few promos with them.  They also got me a few accessories: Plate Setter, V-Rack, Cast Iron Grill.

My wife really wants to get the pizza stone, but what other eggssories should I consider?  My favorite things to do on my old Brinkmann off-set were brisket, and shoulders if that helps with suggestions.

Looking at building a table or a cart when I can get some warm weather, and lumber rounded up.

  • Adjustable rig from the Ceramic grill store. If it's overwhelming to decide what one to get, call and speak to Tom. He's a first class guy and a member here. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I just got a large as well after having a small for years. I bought a raised grid and definitely recommend one. Great for spatchcocking a bird.

  • Congrats on the gift!

    +1 on the pizza stone, it is awesome!

    Though not as sexy as a raised grid, the ash catcher that hooks on the lower vent helps keeps your table or grill area clean.

    Thermapen is also a great tool to have.

    Cheers!

    I forgot to mention that I already have a Maverick ET-73 and Bear Paws from the days of running the Brinkmann.

    Travis and Yem hit the nail on the head.  I just got my AR set-up  - a little pricey but worth it.  You may want to get your feet wet and start with the thermapen first - It is a necessity.

  • I think you're already off to a great start! You can do raised grid setups just by using firebricks and a cheap weber grid. It got me by quite a while before I moved up to an Adjustable Rig. Learn & enjoy your Egg!

    I agree, That's what I did, especially with pizza cooks.
