Hello all! Amateur griller here looking to upgrade from simple gas grills to charcoal and my search inevitably lead to the BGE. At first I was going to go the Weber kettle route but the versatility of the BGE has me very excited.
My question is, I am thinking of picking up a Large and a Medium with the idea being that I can use the L for larger cuts of meats, slow cooking, and burgers/dogs while the M could be used for sides, veggies, or just small meals.
Is this necessary or would a Large alone suffice?
Typically, I'll cook large cuts of meets, chickens, and during the average week, enough food to last a few days for my wife, son, and myself. However I would like the ability to be able to handle a decent sized BBQ of 12 people or so. Perhaps a Large BGE and a 22" Weber kettle would make do?
I called a few local dealers and got a quote of $649.00 for a Large. From my research I've determined that's a fantastic deal but I'm just looking to confirm.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice and I look forward to learning lots from you fine folks!
