first cook on BGE

I decided to do something simple the first time to get a feel for how it cooks, etc. and to burn out any leftover stuff from the manufacturing process. So I just fired it up and let it hum for a while. Twenty minutes after I started it, the temp was 650*. I'm convinced it could sustain a lot higher temp if wanted. Outside temp was 10*.


I grilled a couple of fillets for New Years Eve dinner.


Happy New Year to all.

Griff

Thanks guys. My wife totally surprised me this year with BGE. I'd have never guessed. It's the large BGE and yep, I used lump. Larry, the side dish is a pear salad (pear chunks, honey and orange juice mixed, pecans and crumbled blue cheese).

Yes it does, there is just no substitute for high heat with a steak.

Nice job Griff. Dizzy pig does a lot of hot grilling on his. Maybe when I hit the lottery I will get one of those too.

Congratulations! I've been eyeing ceramic cookers primarily for grilling/roasting purposes. Keep us up to date on how you like it.

Great cookers.but a bit expensive.No replacement parts needed and if used for low and slow ,lump goes a long way.These are a one time investment,you will be giving it to your kids in your will.Yes I may be a bit biased but they are great cookers.

Aaron,
Thanks for the info. I wish they were a little bigger. The largest tend to 18". I'd love to add one to my collection, though.
