Lit the LBGE tonight for the first cook.


Put on some corn on the cob and some brauts from Sam's


After they cooked indirect for a while I finished them off direct.


Man, they were good. And am I looking forward to all the other recipes I've seen on the forum over the past year.

    The way you eat and what you eat will never be the same.

    Congrats and welcome.

    Welcome to the cult.

    By the way, that will be the last time you see your EGG with that brand new tan color.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. Both my sons have eggs and now their father has one too. I'll try to get better with details too, I notice that others tell a little bit of how they prepare their food, so will try to be better as I learn.

    Cooked the brauts at 350 indirect and then direct. Wrapped in the corn on the cob in foil with and ice cube butter salt and pepper, cooked them and the brauts for about 30 mins. Wife had made some coleslaw and that was our meal, didn't really need much more than that.

    Can't wait for my first butt and chicken.

    Thanks again to all on the forum for their kind words and also all the sharing that goes on.

    Nice cook - welcome to the cult.

    Thanks for sharing your first cook with us. The simplicty of day to day cooking is what it is all about.

    That first cook is good stuff. Reminds me of my first time being all excited to cook on it for the first time. The best part is I am automatically happy every time I light my egg. I get to go to my "egg box" and it is good.

    That gasket looks like like you didn't spill a drop of gravy, grease, juice on it! I wasn't so lucky on my first cook. The important thing was that the grub was yummy. Hope you have many more delicious meals.

    For newegg - I pulled the grill our with grill lifter, set aside and using pads and heavy gloves I lifted the plate setter out, set it on a stone (carefully) and then put grill back in. All in about 15 seconds (hot in there lol).

    Crawdad - no grease, juice etc spilled on gasket..was I suppose too? :laugh: Trust me I'm sure in time I will. ;)

    thanks again all
  • Oh! Look! Another squeaky clean Egg. I guess this is part of the initiation process, huh? Mine is getting that "broke-in" look now.
