    You will love your new Egg. Everyone here will be very helpful. The recipe section will give you some great ideas. As a newbie, I am amazed at the amount of info on this forum. :)
  • Welcome to the forum. I've had my XL BGE for a year now and have no regrets. For smaller cooks, buy a reducing ring and you'll use less charcoal. That's the great thing about having a XL, you have the room if you need it for a large crowd or you can reduce the fire for the smaller groups. That XL will cook any thing you want. "Frank from Houma" has some good recipes for all things that swim ,crawl or slithers.

    Welcome to Eggland, you will have lots of fun here. Congratulations on your new egg. There are plenty of friendly Egger's here to help so feel free to ask question.

    If you are in doubt about a cook come here "Before" rather then after so you don't have to say...What happened. :(

    There is a small learning curve and we all have and still are going through it. There are members with website's full of info, let us know if you need links to get to some of them.


    My Ex was from El Salvador, her name is Zonia, it was hard to other to pronounce the Z as the wanted to use the S sound. :)

    Welcome Sonia! Where in Australia do you live?

    I have an XLG and love it! You might want to look in the archives for more 'winter' oriented recipes. Have fun with your new egg.

    Just out of curiosity. How'd you get a BGE all the way down under. Thanks in advance.
  • Welcome, I work with quite a few Aussies, I can always count on them for help.

    Get some exciting recipes, but also try your typical dishes, and maybe things that didn't cook so well when you tried them inside. The egg can transform them all. Also send pictures.
