Hello everyone! I'm new

Hi everyone.  I'm new to the forum and to the Big Green Egg "lifestyle".  I purchased the XLBGE, Backyard Chef Edition Table, AR, and Woo 2 combo on Friday January 10th.  The following Sunday I cooked 3 racks of baby back ribs and 10lbs of chicken wings.  The ribs were cooked at 220 for about 4 hours.  They were not as tender as I would have liked so I think that I need to put them in foil for a period of time next time.  The wings were done raised direct at 400 degrees and were excellent.  I then did a few chicken breast on Tuesday which were so moist, I just couldn't believe it.  Saturday night I put an 8lb pork butt on at 8:45pm anywhere from 240-260 degrees.  It reached 195 at 7am Sunday.  I then wrapped it in foil, towel and into the cooler for 3 hours.  I have NEVER had pulled pork so good in my life.  I didn't even put any sauce on it other than "Myron's butt rub" which I got from the store.  Sunday afternoon I cooked 2 spatchcock chickens. Raised direct at 400 degrees. Unbelievable!  I did spend a ton of money on this set up.  I truly think that it is one of the best investments that I have ever made.  What a great week of cooking and drinking beers.  I'm located in Maryland.  I'm watching it snow and wondering what I should put on "the green gazoo" today.  She loves her pet name too!

I look forward to exchanging ideas and learning from everyone on this post.  Everything that I have cooked so far was a result of time spent here learning how to do it.

Thanks for all of the upcoming support!
