    You just opened up a bee hive, as well as your wallet.  This place will cause you to spend money you didn't even know you have.

    I'll go first - get a thermapen.  If that's not enough $$ to spend, then also get a Kick-Ash Basket and a Flame Boss or Smobot.  

    A Yeti cooler is also nice to have.

    That's exactly what im looking for.  Specifically looking for things I may not know about. I have everything listed above except the smo-bot, not sure on that device yet.

    I'll  say this: the thermopen made me a much better cook. The Kick Ash basket made it significantly easier to operate the Egg (quick up to temp time, easier to hold lower temps, don't have to worry about ash blockage). I'd get a KAB and a cheaper instant read pen like a javelin.

    FIREBOARD if you are in the thermo/pit controller market. I'd suggest checking out the ceramic grill store website if you have not already done so.

    In addition to what has already been listed, some people like Grill Grates.  I cooked on some recently and am thinking of getting some.

    And a dual probe thermometer for long cooks.

    And some cast iron you can use on your egg for searing steaks.

    And a Dutch oven.

    Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.
    Regarding the after market toys-hopefully you come from a background of "always cook to temperature" (except for big protein feel).  So, either you have a thermo that can handle that or you need one at the top of the list.  Thermoworks is the company that makes some great quick responding devices.  If going down that route and don't want to spend the $$ for the thermapen then look at the thermopop.  Close enough for me but a disclaimer-that product wasn't on the market when I ended up with the 'pen.
    There are a few other companies that get solid reviews on here.  FWIW-
    Regarding the other hardware-play around with your BGE and sort out what you need to achieve your objectives.  Many here have toys that effectively became a "one-off" down the road-me included.

    I have only been a  member of this group of misfits and  malcontents for a few months myself, however I find myself returning to this site daily... Some of the funniest sob's I have ever been around! AND they welcomed me with open arms- and verbal  flatulance.... As a new BGE guy I have learned a whole bunch here--all the stuff mentioned above is spot on! I have purchased most of it- including the addition of a BGE min max.
    first thing I did was get a "backup Rutland gasket".... Haven't needed it yet ...but I have it ready immediately if I need it
    ..as Eddie Haskell so eloquently pontificated on leave it to beaver..... "U Don't need it till u need it Sam"

    The least expensive investment you will make in the BGE lifestyle, was your initial purchase of your Egg.
    Wallet genocide begins immediately thereafter.
    It is worth it.

    You've got to have a quality Vacuum Sealer...
    To seal and freeze all the fresh and leftover meats.
    A big freezer too!

  • Thanks everyone for your replies. I have been around the BGE for about 10 years or so now. I guess my initial question was, what NEW products are on the market that work with the egg.

    Sous Vide works very well with the egg, if you don't already have one.

    what you need is a camp egg, which might mean you need a camp, 4x4 truck, atv, skimobiles, jet skis, fishing boat/gear, and two of everything you already purchased ;)
