Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Bought a demo XL today

After 15 years of egging on a LBGE, I gave it to my son and bought an XL.  He gets the LBGE and a ton of accessories including BGE table and in return he is going to make me a table for the XL.

Picking it up Friday morning and Friday night is our pizza night.

Now I have to start accumulating XL toys.

    Wow,  nice gift for your son, and a nice way for him to pay you back.  I'd also be curious to hear your comparison after owning the XL for a while.

  • What a great daddy you are! Do you have a design all picked out for the XL table?

    @ Duganboy-great trade-up.  Win-win all around.  Enjoy the new learning curve with the XL and the fun of a whole new set of toys!

    I've cooked on both. They are very different. My xl takes much bigger adjustments. They are both very easy to use, just different.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I just added an XL to go along with my Large. I can't wait to use it. My new DigiQ DX2 is scheduled for delivery today. I have a feeling it's going to be a busy weekend on the Egg(s).

    While his experience will be different than mine, I have an XL and a Large, and if I were pushed to one I think the XL is more versatile, if for no other reason that the large cook space makes it easy to have both direct and indirect.

    Thanks for all the comments.  I smoked some St. Louis ribs for my son last Saturday and his guests were telling him how good they were. He just smiled and said "thanks".  He has a Bradley Smoker and he said his just didn't taste as good.

    I thought I would pay the experience forward.

    @njl sent you a pm

    You know kids, they never go off scholarship!!!!!  He has never even cooked on a charcoal grill, so he is going to have a learning curve that is going to be fun to wath.

  • He sounds like me, but, I didn't get someone to give me theirs! Honestly I love that you shared what you love with your son! Great stuff!
