As the title eludes to I am considering jumping in to the BGE world. I smoked two 4 pound pork butts on my Weber Kettle today. The Weber has served me well and has gotten me into the low and slow method of cooking. I love it. From all of my research thus far I believe that a BGE can do anything this Weber kettle can...plus a few other things, and better. I am somewhat concerned with the cost. From reading various posts I believe it best to buy form an authorized dealer, vs from someone on Craigslist, for warranty reasons. I see plenty of posts comparing an XL to a Large, or a Large to a Medium. I have also seen many posts regarding the benefits to having more than one!
I am thinking about dipping my toe into the water with a Small or even a Mini. What do you all think? I know size wise a Large would be the right size for my needs but I am concerned as best I can figure I would spend near $1k when all is said and done going the large route. Would it make sense to start with a Mini to make sure I like it before getting down with a Large?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
