A "Must Read" for Anyone in Their Rookie Egg Year

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I got my Egg in March and have been hanging out here and reading many of the posts, posting questions, checking out links etc. There's so much information, sometime it's hard to know where to look.

Today my searching took me to the FAQ section of the Naked Whiz site: http://nakedwhiz.com/ceramicfaq.htm

I wish I would have gone there and read EVERYTHING right off the bat. It's not a recipe source, but I'd venture to say it had everything else you need to know about your Egg and how to use it, take care of it, . . . bond with it.

So, if you're relatively new here like me, and you haven't checked this out yet, take a run at it. It's well worth the time.

    Agreed...this forum and that site were key in my decision to go with the LBGE last October. Amazing amount of good information out there, including some for the DigiQ II, which I also use exclusively now. It hasn't been a year for me yet, so I suppose that I'm still a BGE rookie ;)

    WessB, thirdeye, and TRex also have some wonderful sites with great recipes and setup information as well.

  • totally agree. Being relative new Egger I found the Whiz to be a great source of info along with this forum and one or two other sites. Must reading is the article on flashbacks

    Just make sure after you read about flashbacks you remember what you read. I have read it several times and the other day while doing some steaks I walked up and just threw the dome open. My wife said that i had singed hair on my head, arms, ears, and eyebrows. I couldn't figure out what the smell was. It was my burnt hair.

    Dan - I assume you live in St. Louis. I am originally from there(South St.Louis) many years ago. Most of family still lives there. I try to follow the Cards the best I can but it is difficult in Fla. Usually the best I can do is catch them on WGN or TBS. However I do listen to some games on the net. Nothing like listening to a numb Mike Shannon. I have been to Busch III a few times and dig the new stadium. Hope you can figure a way to make Tuckers/Caruso Pizza, Fried Ravioli or Ted Drewes and let me know about it.
    Regards,
    Dirty1

    Dirty1 - Yeah, I do live in St. Louis. And all the St. Louis institutions that you mentioned are still very much alive and well. I'm looking forward to a long summer of sitting out on my patio, having something cooking away on the Egg, Shannon on the radio doing the cards game, and me with a cold frosty one on hand. I've made it to one game so far this year. Tried to go by Ted Drewes after the game but it was too late (delayed start and extra innings)and they were closed. I believe XM satellite radio carries all MLB games. You might consider that if you really want to get back in touch with the Cards.
