No dogs and no adventuresome pits with pigs-but do have a history with the water/gas smoker ritual and can say the BGE is much easier and better to work with. Now, you could burn through three or four el cheapo water gas rigs for the price of a BGE but at the end of the day it's still a water/gas smoker. I was late to the green kool-aid especially given my first exposure to the BGE was in 1994 but now that I'm here I am am thoroughly enjoying the journey. "Don't look back, somethin" might be gainin on ya". The great Satchel Paige-words to live by.
Enjoy the XLBGE you will regret the delay in making the move and now "Q" happily ever after.
