My newest addition the primo oval xl, joining the 2 large eggs,the mini and the bge chimnea.
Man this thing is huge....here are 2 cedar planked nachos and some homemade sausage I made,couple is deer,then some moose and 2 are goose/partridge mix.
Meal was really good, and the experience so far with the oval is pretty much the same as the egg. Kinda gets to temp a bit faster but it is way bigger and has way much more lump so that is probably the reason. So far i am satisfied with my decision.

    the sausage are ok , i need to tweak the spice mix in them i find they are missing that little kick.

    not sure but the shape is what made the final decision.oval shape accomodates better briskets,ribs,planking......
