New egg owner...tried brisket, ribs, picanha and a pork butt last weekend. Would probably rate in that order. What are some other must tries?

    Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.
    Strong start right there.  You will find that you can cook anything you want on the BGE-just depends on the set-up needed.  So, try something that was a winner on a prior cooking device and give it a go on the BGE.  FWIW-

    To piggyback @lousubcap You just bought the Swiss Army Knife/ all-purpose cooker. Anything you might cook in the oven, grill, or smoke you can cook on the egg. Find recipes that sound good and then cook them on the BGE.
    Have fun! Welcome to the forum.
