We brought home the demo egg on Saturday. Today was the first time I got to try it out! IT IS AMAZING!! I'm waiting for some stuff to ship from the ceramic grill store, so right now I don't have a platesetter. I grilled chicken legs - I used a brick wrapped in tin foil to elevate the legs. They were the best BBQ'd chicken I think I have ever had! Tonight is grilled salmon, baked potatoes, and corn on the cob! It's just fun to use!!
I came home from Mexico with a parasite that laid me up for about 5 days. During that time, I was fine as long as I didn't eat or get out of bed. So I did a lot of searching the web. I really liked the brick oven pizza I had in Mexico. The web lead me to the egg for that. I started stalking the forum and gathering a ton of information. I missed grilling - we had thrown away our gasser years before. I was intrigued that one unit could be an oven, grill, smoker and could possibly outlive me. It took me a year to finally purchase one at an eggfest. That was this past May. I have the large and I love it. Use it whenever I get the chance. It's quickly becoming a member of the family!
Well this certainly is entertaining! Great pre-birthday humor!! Although, sadly, the mangrates will have to wait. Now I'm thinking maybe the heat gun - I'm still using the BGE starter cubes. I like them, but it takes pretty long to get things going.
