    Welcome aboard.  I'm new to the LBGE as well and already loving it.

    1. Lots and lots of food to cook

    2.  Platesetter

    3.  Extra raised grid (whatever method you choose)

    4.  Pizza stone

    5.  Maverick thermometer.


    With these I can do most of the things I want to do.  However I already have the swing grate adapter on the way, am looking at getting a peel, cast iron grate, various cast iron pieces, and numerous other things I dare not list in case SMBO looks at this thread.  :-)

    U might have just sold me on the woo over an AR. Planning on a demo egg with PS, I have had the AR and different combos in a cart but could not pull the trigger. Just not sure it was a "need" out the gate.

    Didn't consider the woo since there has been much AR hype which I am sure is deserved, but the woo I can do out the gate $ wise after buying the egg.
