After all the rave of how good a green egg is............I don't see it. the egg may have its advantages but i have not been able to find them Not only is it a pain compared to gas to start, but the tempature control, especially at cooler tempatures, is more difficult. Steaks aren't as good as on a "good" gas grill and the degree of difficulty is harder. i can't figure out were the reputation came from! What makes this thing successful to those that are using it? If anyone want's to buy a large egg with stand and eggs. it's up for sale if the merchant will not refund.
