    Wow!! This was absolutely awesome!  To tell you the truth, I thought your comments were fabulous and after the first two days, expected the topic had run its course.   We did order both the Maverick and Thermapen after the first few hours of responses.  I did not realize the discussion which ensued later, since I'm only returning today to post and found a plethora of posts (61new) surrounding the BBQ thermo control issue.  I suppose, like one of you suggested, it will be our personal experience that decides on what side of the fence we stand. Chances are we’ll just sit on it, while we experiment.  Also,we appreciated both the informative websites given and have added to favorites for future reference material.

    My last post was April 19th.  After returning home with BGE boxed and ready for assembly, our excitement to get started was quelled by the return of winter weather in these parts for a week.  This week we managed to brick in a 4’ X 5’ BGE patio right next to the kitchen deck to house our EGG.  Yesterday, we assembled the nest and today, the BGE itself.  Thanks to all your suggestions, it went rather smoothly. Yes, to GK59, who asked if anyone actually used a torque wrench to tighten those bolts?  Hubby had one, so why not?

    First cook maybe tomorrow and we have decided on slow & low chicken which was a suggestion to keep costs down while getting acquainted with the procedures.  Just wanted to return today to let you know we appreciated all your helpful comments and we haven’t totally disappeared.  In closing, to the person who just wanted to find a cold beer, we have a parrot that repeatedly asks, “Do you want a cold beer?”  Alas, he has not mastered how to fetch it.

    Enjoyed your comments, your discussion and your humor.
