Greetings to all the eggnuts ..... I had thrown out a post at the end of last year, describing myself as a 48 year old father of 4, ex Marine, successful businessman and somewhat attractive (in my own mind at least) ...... and so totally useless as a cook that I quite possibly could screw up cold cereal. I asked if this was a permissable forum to ask what I'm sure will be the most assinine, idiotic, disturbing, and concerning questions related to grilling ,specifically, grilling with the egg, as I made the decision that in '08 I wanted to learn how to grill.[p]The response was overwhelming, emotional, heartfelt, humorous, and so supportive, that I have made the decision to purchase the holy green egg.[p]Here is the first major question: Which size do I get ??[p]My goals are as follows: [p]a) Be the chief chef on the weekend -- grilling food that will feed the aforementioned family of 6 not only for that weekend, but also have enough quality leftovers to last till the next weekend.[p]b) When I gain some confidence, I would like to entertain and feed the guests with food grilled on the egg. I am thinking the most we would have over here would be 8 - 12 people (however, if we get the backyard redone to include tables, could be more at some point).[p]3) In addition to best size, what are the best accessories to get ?? Ideally, I would just as soon stick with the stuff that the egg company makes: that way I just go to one store [p]Assume budget is not an issue.[p]Am SO looking forward to the journey, many thanks in advance for those who feel led to lead me thru it ...... when you enter the pearly gates there will be extra jewels in your crown for your kindness, compassion, and mercy.[p]Thank you in advance, may the grilling begin.
