    I am super excited to say I now have a Big Green Egg smoker. I can't wAit to fire it up! I've been smoking on a brink man vertical smoker and I'm glad to be moving away from that.

    Now the big question is what to smoke first, brisket or ribs. :yahoo:

    I plan on doing some ribs this weekend but I am having a hard time controlling the urge to do something sooner. [​IMG]

    Just got done mixing up the rib rub, tomorrow will be the sauce.

    I'm really looking forward to not having to tend my fire every hour like I had to on that Brinkman Vertical smoker and being able to maintain consistant temps.

    Why is it only Monday!?!?

    Congrats on the BGE! I too just got a primo and ceramic cooking is a whole new level. Problem is, if you botch dinner, you can't blame it on the grill anymore :)

    My Son got a Big Black egg.

    It looks exactly like a Big Green Egg, but it's black, and it cost less.

    I don't know much about it, but he loves it !

    Anybody know anything about them??? Made cheaper maybe???

    China knock off! Lots of pockets of air with in the ceramic. Not so good seal.

    I saw the black eggs at Sam's, don't remember the brand, but it was cheaper. I chose the Primo over the BGE because of the oval shape. Just kept thinking ribs would fit better. They are both excellent cookers though. Gonna fire mine up this weekend. I will hug it, and squeeze it, and call it George. [​IMG]
