Finally got to try out the new egg!

Pork loin rubbed down with fresh rosemary, garlic, EVOO, & Salt and pepper.

Added some Klondike Gold potatoes and sweet corn to the egg to round out dinner!

I think I am going to like this thing :D

Looks fantastic. How did you cook the loin cause I notice a nice smoke ring but not an indirect setting on the Egg....

Welcome to the cult. You can go ahead and change your way of thinking to "I Love this thing!!"

Great first cook. Any problems getting the temp dialed in?

Thanks everyone.

I put all of the charcoal to one side and put the roast on the other so I was not over direct heat.

I did have to play with the vents to keep my temps consistent.
I found that I the small vent openings on the cast iron top were not enough.
I slid it almost 2/3 of the way off to keep my temps up.

Still, I was thrilled with the outcome!

Might want to keep an eye on the holes in the bottom grate. They can become clogged with ash, which will inhibit airflow to the coals. That might be what is causing the temp issues.

Most of us have fashioned or purchased a "wiggle rod", which is just a thin metal rod bent at a 90 degree angle, which you can stick inside the bottom vent and use to dislodge the ash from the holes.

Yeah I have been regularly shop vaccing out my ashes both inside the fire ring and underneath.
