Just got my new egg - now what should I cook first?
Got my large egg today from Hearthside with no problems whatsoever. It was packed well and the driver from RL was very nice and waited while I unpacked it and checked it out for damages. Took me about an hour to assemble it as I was being overly carefull. The video helped out quite a bit but I probably could have done it in a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes if I was handier. I didn't get the nest as my dad is building me a cedar table for the egg (he's 82 and can still build some mean furniture).[p]Going to fire it up this weekend but need some suggestion from the experts on what I should cook to break it in. I was thinking of chicken or a Boston Butt since they are somewhat forgiving if I have problems with temp. variations. So the question is; what would you cook and do you have any words of advice for me?
