    Looks like the ONLY thing you forgot is: where to buy that second egg :whistle:
    Nice list and posting....
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

     Wow! Great list, that will take a while to eggsplore.

    Thanks, I have it bookmarked.

    Thanks for that, as new Egger (in merry old England) I'm often on the look-out for guidance here on the forum, so it's really good to have so much useful info in one spot.

    I like seeing this pop up every now and again...

    might be worth having it posted as sticky? Or that Quick Links section on the top left (I've never noticed that before.. has it always been there?)
    context is important :)

    Thanks for the great post

    Thanks. My BGE was delivered last friday. I've cooked on it 3 times -- marinated steak tips, bbq chicken and meatloaf. All super yum.

    The plate setter really helps and is worth the 50$?

  • It doubles the methods you have at you disposal for cooking, such as bread making, but an adjustable rig (which is a fair bit more the $50) will open up cooking techniques 10 fold. With the rig (including a pizza stone) you don't need a platesetter.

  • kirstenlkirstenl Posts: 29
    What is an adjustable rig?
  • Check out the link above for the ceramic grill store to get your answer.
  • kirstenlkirstenl Posts: 29
    I have a medium egg due to the size of my budget, family and apartment living, which limits some of my accessory possibilities. Sniff. The good news is that the offerings at ceramic grill seem very competitive and maybe even more versatile for even a medium.

    What is an adjustable rig?
  • Oh yea! I got that bookmarked. :)

    Great post Boston_Stoker,
    Even though I'm not real new I will also benefit from you source of links.

    My Thanks,

    Being as I can't remember anything :laugh: I guess that makes me so Old I'm a newbie.

    Yup, I agree!! For me one of the best value accessories I have ever bought for the egg. I wouldn't be without an Adjustable Rig and Spider.

  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Here is the link. Look in the upper left hand corner to navigate to the accessories (Equipment).

    This store is owned by member tjv. Tom provides top quality products. I love the AR and Spider.
