Well, I got the Large model and just put it together today. Almost went without a hitch until the very end when I succeeded in over torquing one of the handle nuts and busting the little bolt that comes with it. Apparently I don't know my own strength. I'm not upset since I can likely get a replacement bolt or have one made easy enough. Pain to loosen the dome to re-install but that's my penance for being a dumb-ass. For now, I can still use it if I'm a bit careful when I open and close the lid.
So, what should I cook first? Anyone have any good recipes for the BGE that I need to try? Key imperative here is that it has to be awesome to overcome my wife's lack of enthusiasm at my purchase. She wasn't that thrilled, despite the fact that I got it brand new for $700. Nice to have friends with connections.
I'm thinking either ribs, pork butt or smoked chicken. Thoughts?
