    I fussed around nearly 2 years before i bought my first Egg. Seemed like a "plunge." Turned out to be a really good, sensible decision. They are "eggcellent" appliances. Tho' a bit more work than the kitchen range, just about everything comes out better. Making stock would be a notable exception.

    So try out starting a fire, and selecting a temperature, and holding it. Its a good bet to make a first cook something fairly quick. Mine was a 1 pound chunk of pork loin. Followed by brats and chicken pieces before doing ribs.

  • Bought my 1st gas grill many years ago.  Salesman said food tasted just as good on gas as charcoal, (pure bunk).  After all these years I went out in August and bought a large BGE.  Got so "pumped" with really good tasting food, went out and bought another large for my lake house.
