Long story a few weeks ago I found out that I'm going to be getting a LBGE from my boss who is a bge retailer for helping him out this winter. I have wanted one for a few years now, and I cant wait to finally get one. for the last week or two I have been reading through this forum, and I am really pleased with the great amount of solid information around here.

So far I have decided that before I go all out with an adjustable rig of sorts im going to go with a standard place setter until I really start to figure out what im doing. Im also going to have to pick up a thermapen because from what I see on here it is pretty much the best way to go.

It is also really great to see all of the egg tables on here, I think I have made about 10 or so at work, and the current tables we sell are really turning out nice. unfortunately after seeing some of the built in egg stations on here im really starting to want to make a nice permanent cooking area in the backyard, but im not sure if i want to give up the ability to go portable with the egg quite yet. I figured I would throw up a picture of one of the XL tables right after it was finished and before it was stained.

thanks for all the great info, now im off to do some more reading, haha

    Welcome aboard Sir. There are a lot off great people on here that give sound advice and are always willing to help with any situation you can think off. Of course there is some riff raff but just ignore them and enjoy the ride. Again welcome my friend.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    That's what I did, and I think it's  a good plan.

    With that said, though, I think I'm going to splurge at CGW for my birthday in May.

    I've been cooking for 2 years with a platesetter and a $10 digital thermo from the grocery store. My only accessories beyond was the $25 grill extender. You should have no problem turning out great stuff with the stock parts.

    Congrats! That's a nice boss you have. Table looks great too. As for a semi permanent work station at home there was a thread not long ago where the guy left his egg in the nest (W/O side tables) and wheeled it into an outdoor kitcken station. It looked sweet!
