I am an avid griller / smoker and have been watching the BGE for years ! I am finally pulling the trigger. I have a small family. ( 4 total ) Mother in Law isnt a fan of BBQ. SO really three.

I am torn between the large and XL egg. I was told that the large is WAY big enough for my family. SO I will be getting that.

I truly look forward to being a part of this family and learning from ALL of you.

Regards and Blessings !

    You will love the food from either size.  I normally cook for 2 and love my XLs.  The extra grill area allows direct, indirect, and raised grid all at the same time. Not too many people have posted that they wished they would have bought a large over the XL.  Either way, you will probablly own 2 sometime in the not so distant future.

  • You won't be sorry.  I've had mine for 2 months and I've used it to make everything but icecream. 

    My opinion:

    Get the platesetter!

    Pass on the ash tool, use a shopvac if you have one to get the ashes.

    Don't buy Green egg coal, my understanding is that it's Royal Oak coal in a different bag and a higher price.

    If you buy online you won't get the warranty, stick with a local dealer.

  • @Nuke1855, welcome - interesting to hear what you think as you adapt your previous smoker/griller experience to the egg. Share your opinions and cooks!
