New member!

Hello...been an large Egg owner since last summer and been lurking for awhile, but finally joined the community.  From north Texas, 40-something married father of three boys, reformed stick burner.  Like to hunt, play some golf, drink some beer with my friends, hang out with the family and cook on the Egg. 

We had the benefit of having some friends get an Egg and I was astounded at the quality of food that came off of it.  That and the versatility really sold me on the product and I'm now a firm believer/convert/cult member, whatever you want to call us.  I built my own table, as well as a few for some others.  My favorite cooks so far are my old staple baby back ribs, pork butt, smoked hamburgers, pizza, and our latest foray has been chicken bombs which have turned out incredible.

So far, I have my table (cedar/granite), the Maverick meat thermometer.....and my most prized accessory, the two-tiered rack system from Ceramic Grillworks which I absolutely love.

I look forward to participating and learning on the forum and maybe even imparting some of my wisdom to others as well.

    That right... another Texan in the house!! Welcome. Take your swing rack over to @Solson005 's place for a play date. He is an ambassador for the swing rack (not really).

    Would love to see those smoked burgers cooked up.

    Welcome from a Oklahoma egghead. As @caliking said I have a swing rack and love loading it up and use it all the time.
    I would love to see a picture of your table. I'm a big fan of cedar, I went the pergola route but love tables.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    KL, great to have your experience posted and shared here!  We are newbies in the BGE sense ourselves and your most prized eggcessory  had my husband earmarking the Ceramic Grillworks site for future reference.  Need to get more experience under our belts first.  He liked the look of that adjustable grill.
