    Those in the BBQ subculture think that it is a POS - issues with the ceramic casting. I would get one from Costco because when it breaks, you can return it.

    Had some ribs in the "Egg-lite" (guess that's what I'll call it). AMAZING! Can't beat that flavour!

    Steaks aren't shabby either.

    Two questions:

    1) What type of charcoal did you use? I always use lump...the brand can vary...typically Royal Oak.

    2) Did you use any wood chunks for smoke? I love tossing on some chunks of hickory, cherry, or apple wood.

    1) Lump. Royal Oak. Apparently you should never use briquettes for a kamado grill.

    2) Yeah there were some wood chips in there at the beginning. I think it was hickory.

    2) Yeah there were some wood chips in there at the beginning. I think it was hickory.

    Briquettes aren't recommended ever, as far as I'm concerned. I find they give food a chemical taste due to their manufacturing process. Some briquettes are marketed as "all natural" or whatever, but I've never gone wrong with lump.

    Wood chips and wood chunks are different. Chips aren't that great for a charcoal grill, as they can be burned up pretty fast. It's a little tougher to find wood "chunks" (bigger pieces of wood, no soaking required), but it's worth it. Sometimes Home Depot or Lowes will stock them. Chunks give off smoke over a much longer period of time. I do use chips often though, if I'm doing burgers or something else that requires a very short cook-time.

    Anyway, congrats on your ribs! Nothing shows off the power of charcoal grills like doing up some yummy ribs. Try chicken wings sometimeI cook mine for a while with some wood chunks for smoke, and then sauce em up towards the end of the cook. They turn out great, and are really, really easy.

    haha I can't take the credit, my dad's the cook Wink. I'd get one myself whenever I move out.

    and yeah actually the wood was decently big so they were probably chunks
