Thanks to all of you for making me feel welcome to your group. I've yet to fire up my BGE, but plan to do so this coming week. If I understand correctly, its best to keep the temp at 350 or lower for the first couple of times to allow the seal to condition itself. Anything else I should know to get started? I've looked at a few videos and feel confident I can make this work. Almost feel like I've gained a few pounds just looking at the recipes! Thanks in advance for your help.
