New Egghead

Hello Everyone, 

I just purchased the Large BGE.  I'm really excited to begin this culinary journey with you guys and gals!  I believe a broke a primary rule for first timers but I had to go with burgers.  The plan is Ribeyes tomorrow and I'll let you guys know how they go.  I will stress again to burp your egg and/or invest in gloves.  After reading this 1000 times, the egg was up to 500 and when I lifted the grate....BAM, there goes my knuckle hair!!!!  Needless to say I will be getting gloves tomorrow.  I hope I can eventually contribute to this forum as I have been lurking until I made the purchase.  Thanks again!

    You are right. I was going to go the one by Tjcoley but no periods in it and like the one above it just ran together.

    Welcome aboard Jamie.
    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.

    Love the post Mickey, haven't read that one before, yes, this is my 1st post also, egging for 3 months, lurking on this forum before that (GREATLY helping with my purchase and start-up accessories), absorbing all the knowledge and wisdom, recently registered after getting in on the extender group buy, got it already, can't wait to try with a big batch of corn on the cob...

    I am new as well, and have managed to work our BGE in at LEAST every other day into a meal. 

    Try 3/1/1 ribs soon, its a fun low n slow true barbecue recipe that is hard to jack up!
