I started reading the forum in 2005, when I first heard of the Big Green Egg. I purchased two large BGEs in early 2006. In 2007 I built a shrine (outdoor kitchen) to them. I've cooked hundreds of meals on them in rain, shine, sleet and snow. I've attended and cooked in a Big Green Egg fest.

I am a loyal devotee and ardent admirer of this unusual almost magical cooking device and have had a least two people join the cult of Eggers due to my recommendations, demonstrations and and ravings.

And now, after finally coming out of lurker mode, I see my ranking as a "Newbie Egger"! Ouch, that hurts! :blush:

Can't WMK at least change the ranking to "Newbie Poster"? :lol:

    Got my first egg in 2000. Now with the amount of posts (I didn't register till Dec 07) it just means I talk too much. 8 years of egging and I'm still a newbie after all the info I receive every day from friends on the forum. Just means your coming in more qualified to help than most of us were.

    It's on my profile. I posted it last year (must have been one of my 4 posts :laugh:).

    I'll post again, soon!

    Lab Rat,

    I've been around for a long time and I just turned platinum. Didn't register for the new forum and that cost some points. What does it matter anyway?

    I agree with you! If it would help your case before the judge I offer up this testimony I made back in June. You and Serg cooked your way into the BGE Hall of Fame that day!

    Thanks Ron!

    Just to clarify - I'm not really upset by the numbers. I fully deserve a ranking equal to my posting rate!

    Hey, in comparison with some of the folks that have posted voraciously over the years, I am a newbie - both in cooking and posting.

    This forum has got to be one of the best sources of camaraderie and great cooking information - and not just "limited" to cooking on the BGE. I've learned so much over the years while lurking!
