My wife (the greatest) recently bought me a large BGE a few months ago for passing the CPA exam, and it has been the greatest gift ever. Have cooked several types of meat, and all have turned out great. She got me a cyber-q wifi for Xmas so now I'm thinking of smoking a Boston butt. If anyone is on the fence trying to decide to but an egg or not....go for it. You will not regret it.
