Christening the Big Green Egg

Well, after a painful week and two days with my BGE hiding in the box it came in I finally finished my EGG table and lit charcoal for the first time ever in my life. I'm a changed man ; )

As you get to know me more and more it'll make perfect sense but I've christened the BGE with it's first cook - an 8" CI Skillet cookie using the family recipe. I'll share the recipe once I perfect it - needs a little adjustment to cook up a nice big cookie though we're sure to devour it in about 3 minutes here and love every bite!

Funny that I found it so important to share "hot off the grill" with this forum......

    Welcome man. I like the choice of first cooks. Looks great. You will be a forum addict soon enough--- too much wisdom, pics, lessons, humor, etc not to be.

    Don't give it a moment's  thought, @macboy, that egg won't be that clean inside for long!

    I think it's actually a can of grasshopper wheat beer And cans are a easy and cheap way to get the grill a little higher in the dome

    That is definitely a different first cook than the norm around here. Usually its some sort of protein.

    Way to step out of the box.
