Is A BGE worth it ?

edited 7:11PM in EggHead Forum
Been searching for a bbq grill and saw thiss Big Green Egg site...

    <p />John Decker, worth is a relative term! [p]If you are questioning the value of purchasing a BGE, the answer still depends. If you like great BBQ ranging from low/slow 18-20 hour Pulled Pork at 200 degrees upward to searing steaks at 800-1000 degrees, then the BGE is 'worth it'. [p]I bought mine last September. Check out the link and it will show you my feelings about the BGE. For me it was definately 'worth it'. Good luck.[p]

    John Decker,[p]An Egg is worth every penny. I started with a small egg. Not long after, I upgraded to a medium. I now have two eggs, a medium and a mini.[p]Cooking with an Egg is just ... better. More flavor, more fun and more options (low and slow to hi temp searing). I'm sure you'll get many opinions![p]Smokey

    John Decker,
    Your life will never be the same if you get an egg. Buying the egg improved my cooking many times over. It's ease of use, and versatility is hard to beat....and the food is magical.[p]Factor in the great advice you get here on the forum, and it is really not a tough decision. Go for it. We are here when you are ready to cook![p]NB

    John Decker, I once had a life. I boated, fished, swam, and went exploring on weekends just to have something to do that I really liked.. Then I bought a BGE.. Now everything I do is mentally connected to my EGG. If I'm planning a fishing trip,, I plan a meal that will slow cook on the Egg and be ready upon my return, and while fishing, I see 2 filets everytime I land a fish. When I'm driving down the road,, meat markets ketch my attention and I stop to view the displays. Wednesdays, to me, mean planning ahead for brining, marinating, rubbing. My friends previously liked to visit for chatting and fellowship,, now they all say,," what are you Egging this weekend?". I'm in too deep.. I'm an Egg-a-holic. Yes, it's true. And I don't want to change. Isn't that sick? This is a true story. It may only be suitable for adult viewing, and Egg-Heads,, but I thought you ought to know. If you go through with it,, you will find yourself spelling words like,, "YEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeHAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!" when telling of your successes here on the Forum. Don't worry,, a lot of us do it. It's not normal,, but fellow Eggers understand. Go ahead,, join the cult. Your life will change, but you won't want to go back............

    John Decker,
    I can't add anything the others haven't already said! I can say I started with a Large, now I've got a small & a medium too. My kids each have one, my brother has one and my brother-in-law & sister-in-law have one! All them people can't be wrong!!!! Crazy??? Yes!!! Wrong??? Nope!!![p]Give in to the urge, you'll never look back! (Your waist line will never look the same either!) :^)))[p]Dr. Chicken

    John Decker,
    No it's not, buy a LARGE BGE. Rumor has it they're cheaper by the dozen :)[p]TR

    Dr. Chicken,
    Talk to your dealer about a "baker's" dozen:)

  • Dr. ChickenDr. Chicken Posts: 620
    My dealer has gotten to the point he is almost giddy when he sees me coming! I don't know where he got the sickening grin, but I think I know the reason for the dollar sign reflecting off his eyeballs! If he were a little plumper, he'd remind me of the chesshire cat with feathers still around his mouth! :^)))[p]Only in AMERICA folks![p]Dr. Chicken

    I don't think I've ever bought a product that I've been as happy with as I have with my BGE.
