I just bought a large BGE package! It will be delivered sat!! I am sure I will be asking for help. I have been on this forum for about a month now. I have been reading and learning from everyone on this forum and for that I say thank you! I am sure there will be more questions! Proud to be a egghead!!!

    Fairly new myself. Welcome aboard!!

  • Thanks is there any advice for a first cook and tools or must haves for the BGE?
  • Welcome aboard you are gonna love it. I too am pretty new but learning so fast. On your short list, you'll want something to deflect the flames and cook indirectly, be it a plate setter, or something modified. That will allow you to cook low and slow. I'd say further down the road, a pizza stone is a must.

    But there are a whole world of things you can cook without anything but the stock grill and egg. I would suggest for your first cook do something simple. Steak, Salmon fillets, ABTs, Spatchcock chicken or something. Whatever you like... 

    Be sure to stock up on Lump! I really like Royal Oak from Walmart.

  • Welcome to the world of the EGG. It is a lot of fun. There are many people here to help you when the questions pop up. Pizza tastes AWESOME on the egg. Putting steaks on the grill tomorrow. Can't wait. Might do some ABTS for an appy.
    Enjoy your EGG

  • I'm a little anti-eggstablishment and a unrepentant minimalist in the accessories department with one exception...the placesetter.  Was given one as a gift a few years ago and it really does produce spectacular results when cooking indirectly.   
  • spreadEagle, WHAT?  You mean you don't have the Egg cornholders?  Or the Egg candle holder?  :))

  • I'm waiting for the Big Green Egg Edition Ford Explorer.
