    Some great advice I have heard on here said your first cook should be whatever you cooked the most on your last grill. You will really see the difference. I think it's a great idea.

    Having said that, burgers are easy and taste amazing on the Egg. Also, spatchcock chicken is good if you want to get your wife on board with the whole experience.

    Spatchcock chicken is a "no brainer" , very easy and forgiving.

    I did baby backs low and slow for my first cook.    I started the temp real low and then kept it there as I slowly closed the bottom vent and daisy wheel.     Learned a lot in the four hours and got to spend quaity time with my egg.  BTW that is my first cook in my profile pic.

     Went with stuffed burgers,hot dogs and sausage. Turned out good for my first time ever cooking on a green egg. I will try the spatchcock chicken next.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
