Lots of people have grills and most of the ones I know really don't study the art of grilling they just sprinkle a little something on the meat and cook until they think it is done.
That's what I always did and I thought I did a pretty good job.
Fact is the grill does make better food most of the time even if you don't know what your doing. Most of my friends don't have a clue they just throw it on the grill an rave about how good it is.
Since getting my egg just before Thanksgiving I have come to realize that I really do have the equipment for world class cooking I just need to learn how to take advantage of it.
I didn't have a clue about rubs or sauces, now I have several bags of special rubs and a few jars of sauces and am on the look out for more.
The food is beginning to really improve.
My wife will tell you I never spent so much time cooking before, and she really likes that.
This egging is turning into a passion, I had no idea this would happen when I bought my egg.
I'm even thinking I would like to find a bbq team and really learn the craft.
And I'm going to have to buy another egg, the Xtra large is great but maybe I need a med next. You can't have to many can you?

    Where are you located?

    There are several egg teams around the country. At least four of us frequent the forum. You should check out a competition first. They can get pretty intense. A better option might be to attend one or more of the Eggfest first. While they aren't competitions they are a great learning experience.

    The Egg is simply a tool to express the art of cooking. Like any tool learning to use it properly is the first step. Mastering your tools will help you master the art.

    I was just thinking out loud with a beer in my hand I am not a competition caliber chef by any means, but I might make a good grunt while I learn.

    There are a few BBQ teams from MS, but not sure about Egg Teams. Most of the full egg teams are from Va, NC, SC and GA. There are at least two in Ca.

    I posted a link to the KCBS Events page check it out.. You might find something near you.
