I've been reading the forums for quite some time. What an amazing amount of information you guys have!!! Also, this has to be the most active bbq forum on the net. After much deliberation, I finally purchased my first Big Green Egg yesterday. After a lot of "soul searching" as my wife calls it, I decided on the XL. It is being delivered this morning. It will be replacing my Weber Performer and WSM. I'm sure they will find happy homes in my garage for the time being.
Anyway... I'm looking forward to chatting it up with you guys about all things related to the egg. I can't wait to start learning how to cook on it. I laid in bed for like an hour last night trying to figure out what I was going to throw on the egg for the inaugural cook. Do I do something simple like burgers or steaks? Or do I go all out and cook a pork butt or brisket? Hmm... I like having to make these hard decisions. I like the long cooks, b/c then I get to tell my wife "If the fire is goin, I need a beer to cool me off." Obviously she doesn't mind this in the afternoons... its when she wakes up and I'm drinking a beer for breakfast that she is concerned.
Ok... I'm rambling... guess I'm a bit excited. Now to go hang the streamers and party balloons for the egg's coming home party...
