In just three days, I will be the proud father and fellow green egg owner like you. Do any of you remember the excitement that I am experiencing??? The order placed, the anticipation? How my large egg will be shipped? and Waiting for your egg to arrive safe and sound? Waiting for that first fire? First taste of wood fired pizza. I am so-o-o excited to join the ranks of you fine folks. All of you are terrific. I can't wait to be a part of your brotherhood. Anyone else getting ready for their new arrival? BTW, it is a Large one with all the trimmings. I even got the ash rakes to boot. Do I need a cover? Let me know what else I need. Cheers and good health to you all.
