  • What makes the egg great?

    I know, a loaded question.  

    In all seriousness, I have just purchased my first egg and am still in the break in period and learning my way around.  I found that using the egg is not as simple as, say a smokey joe, where it's a direct heat grill.  I can see the benefits of the ability to BBQ on the egg as well a high indirect heat for pizzas and such.  But, what I'm looking for is a better result then what I get from my gas stove and convection oven for high heat sears and roasting.  Yes, in the egg I can add smoke to my grilling and roasting, which is great, but I want more.  Maybe I'm just impatient but I want to be blown away, besides low\slow BBQ and pizza what have have people found the egg to be great at?

    Thanks, looking forward to becoming an egghead.
