It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

  • Re: New to the Egg (LBGE) and forums!

    Welcome aboard. This is the place to get great advice. 

    I came from a background of using a gas grill all my life and a horizontal offset charcoal smoker for the last 7 years. In some ways I find the temperature control as good or better than the gas grill over a far wider range of temps. The longest I used to go on my smoker was 1-2 hours before I had to go play with the vents. My first brisket on the Egg went 10 hours and I made one and only one tweak about an hour before finishing. I'd opened the lid and the temperature was 5 degrees low when it recovered. It was so stable I kept running outside to check that my Maverick ET-73 remote read thermo hadn't lost synch.  But yes it was that stable.

    You are gonna love this grill. I am already planning on my second Egg right after Christmas.
