    An old dog looking for new tricks...

    Hi All, I've been cookin and smokin for a lot of years. I've owned a Brinksman bullet, an offset smoker, and a weber kettle w/smokinator, but just bought a Big Green Egg. I've done a bunch of cooks in this last month, some really good, and none real bad, but I'm looking forward to learning (and eating) more!
    Cheers,
    Bob

      Thanks Huskee. I did read your post about setting up a sig, and I've been working on it for an embarrassing length of time now. I have one pic I'd like to post that I'll post here, and I also use a Weber Genesis 320, Maverick E733, and a Thermapen. I'd appreciate any help you can offer.
      Cheers,
      Bob

        Nice setup! If you want me to setup your signature, you can reply here with your stuff to include or PM me. Or if you're stuck on something in particular I can try to help.

                  Thanks you guys. Already love the egg. Doin 2 tri-tips tonight. I'll post a Q-view if I have the time. It's a birthday party for my wife so I will probably get sidetracked at some point. A martini will usually do that...

                    3 martinis did that to me once.

                  Yup. The party turned into a 3 martini night...no pics of the cook. Sorry guys. I'll get it together one of these days.

                      Welcome to the Pit bubbabob. It's always nice to have another Egghead on board to share information and ideas with.

                        Congratulations on the new egg! What size did you get? I've had my XL for 3 years and love it.

                          I got a large, BG. Seems big enough for my purposes. I also just bought a Smokin-it Model #1. I'm going to use it as a warming cupboard for the stuff I cook on the egg and then have to wait till guests are ready to eat, as well as using it as a smoker too. I think it will compliment the egg pretty well. I'm going to make some Buffalo Wings tonight with a little gadget I bought called the Thunderdome Vortex. I think I might be able to stay sober enough to take some pics. It's my first attemp using this tool so we'll all get to see the results 1st hand. I'll post it someplace appropriate.
                          Cheers,

                            Go I love the Vortex when its on warp ten. Just start with beer then move on to the brown stuff after the cook!

                              You got that right Spinaker. The blasted thing will burn your hand off if you don't wear a glove. The wings turned out great, BTW. Crispy skin, moist inside, and lots of flavor from the almond chunk I put over the Vortex. I fiddled with the egg dampers a bit to keep the temp around 365. Unfortunately, I didn't get but one pic before I got too busy with other things, so no Q-view again.
