    I'd say bottle opener or radio with iPod dock.

    No beer, no tunes , no egging.

    That would have to be the Guru DigiQII. I could not do all of the ultra low & slow smoking without it; bacon, sausage, bologna, summer sausage and jerky. Almost every other accessory I use could be replaced with something homemade or jury rigged. I really enjoy a restfull night's sleep too. :laugh: Mark

    THERMAPEN :angry: :P Okay next question :laugh:

    I would really hate to give up my digiq2 and thermopen but i would never give up a Miller Lite while the BGE is doing its Magic

    Past the thermometer, I’m really liking the CI on the BGE.

    Without question it would be the tjv's Adjustable Rig/Spider Combo and the AR/Spider would be the first accessory I would buy for a large.

    I'd say the beer fridge that is 3 steps or one jump from the egg.

    Good thinking, Julie. You say the forum and I'm inclined to agree with you. I can use the forum whether I'm eggin' or not. Unless it is down.
  • The simple reason you didn't get the answer you were looking for is the forum is not a toy. Much in the same way that air isn't ;) :laugh: :woohoo:

    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • DigiQII - I still don't sleep straight through the night with a long cook but I sure get a lot more sleep than I did before I got one!

    I'm with weekend warrior. Couldn't do without the
    GaruDigII. Do lots of low and slow, and, it's nice to put it on and go to bed and forget about it.

  • I second that. These are the essentials.
  • WoodbutcherWoodbutcher Posts: 1,004
    I'll jump on the thermapen bandwagon. I use almost every cook.

    AZRP..... ;)
  • AZRPAZRP Posts: 10,116
    What was I thinking? Of course the Filly. -RP

    (beer / wine isn't a toy - it's on a par with food/charcoal/air, thermapen can be done without, thirdhand - well I could use the original grate lifter if I could find it, company - that's optional)

    Yes - Woo
