Default First cook on the egg


I just cooked for the first time on one of my new eggs. Love it !

Made a small fire, added some hickory and let it burn for a couple of hours to get to know the temperature control. Found it to be very easy.

Then i opened the vents a bit more, added some argentinian chorizo sausages and closed the lid again. When the sausages were almost done i opened the bottom vent all the way to crisp em up a bit and grilled some ciabatta with chipotle butter as a side.

Mighty good eats !

Cant wait for my first indirect cook. I got two small catering events to do this weekend but might be able to do cook some pulle dpork for myself on sunday.

Cheers !

That looks pretty good. You did the smart thing and played with the temp to get control of it. I think a lot of newbies to the egg just want to throw it on and do a 600 degree sear on a steak and don't take the time starting off to learn the cooker.

That looks great. Digging the little garnis you threw on there too. Looks like you are off to a great start.

Off to a good start! Is that EGG on a second floor balcony, if so I'll bet that was fun getting it up there.
