I have some chix brest that have been marinating since saturday. Do you all think it will be a problem firing the egg for about 7-8 chix breast? I am ready.... just need some advice/motivation to fire her up. The wing is howling pretty good out.

    I don't foresee a problem as long as you heat-soak the egg slowly.

    I had the Egg up to 600 degrees in about ten minutes - 25 degrees with 30 mph gusts.  I think the wind helped get it to temp pretty quick.  No problems.

    That's not even cold!  :D The egg will be fine. The cook should wear a sweater or some such. 

    I'm not sure what "heat soaking the egg slowly" means either. I just light it and let 'er rip. The faster I can get it up to temp, the sooner I can start cooking.

    I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.

    Yes, that is what I meant.

    Just my .02 as to how I do it.

    The lower vent was frozen shut. I just hit it for a few secs with the torch and it opened up. No issues with the egg.
