We just ordered our first BGE - a large one - along with a nest, a cover, a plate setter and a V-roasting rack. I had been salivating over outdoor pizza/bread ovens, but the cost and effort just seemed prohibitive. Then I heard about Big Green Eggs. I don't know anyone who owns one except a couple of people online who have been really helpful, so we took a ride to visit several locations which sold them, in order to meet one in person (in ovum?). There was actually a significant difference in price between stores, which surprised me. But this morning we bit the bullet and made the phone call to the one with the best deal; our egg is supposedly due in this week.
We have a Blue Flame gas grill which I wanted to get rid of because it takes up a lot of space on our screened porch, so we ordered a small Weber Q120 for those times that it's too wet or buggy for us to want to venture outside to cook. The Blue Flame grill is slated for our kid's house. But my husband is mourning the loss of rotisserie capability, and I'm wondering if the BGE, which can apparently do so many things, can somehow accomplish the same effect.
I'm also going to need to figure out how to bake bread in it. I use the 5-Minute-A-Day Artisan Bread method, but that probably doesn't make a difference.
And lastly I love to cook French dishes, like daubes and cassoulets and poulet au pot, so I'm hoping that the Grand Oeuf Vert will accommodate. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions after it arrives.
