It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

I have been lurking here several weeks and thought I would introduce myself.[p]Local - Beaverton, Oregon.
Age - Certified old fart.[p]After years of trying to cook decent BBQ on various brands and types of smokers/cookers/grills I finally purchased large egg last week.[p]I think I'm in love. Absolutly amazing how easy it is to set and maintain a temp. Did a hamburger for my first fire the other night just to make sure I understood what I was doing. No problems. For my second cook I have a rack of baby back pork ribs on the grid running at 230. Will probably take them off after 4 - 4 1/4 hours.[p]Great forum[p]**** - Toy Man

    Welcome Toy Man, The Egg could be the ultimate toy. Man I love Oregon. I fished the Deschutes in 98 and 01. Heaven on earth. I can't wait to get back up there.

  • Toy Man,
    Welcome to the club! I bought my BGE in December and feel it is one of the best purchases of any type that I have ever made. Still learning all of the ins and out, but having a ball.

    Toy Man,[p]Welcome to the family...! You're probably as far away as they get from me, here in N. Florida (except for the fellow in Alaska), but I'm itching to visit your neck of the woods sometime. Our family has 5 acres on Camino Island and one day, we plan to go out and visit the area.[p]The egg is an incredible thing...we got our first one a couple years ago and now have the mini, small, medium and large. Every weekend, we decide what we're cooking and the things that come off the egg provide "instant" meals for us throughout the egg, thanks to our foodsaver.[p]Welcome!

    Toy Man,
    Welcome to the forum, you're in for lots of fun. Be sure to ask your questions here and don't go by the book. If you don't know about the Flashback potential follow the link, you need to be aware of this.[p]Regards,
    New Bob
