My wife and I are looking at either dropping some money on a BGE or a Vermont Castings BBQ. Both are in the same price range, but the BGE is a bit more once you factor in the accessories, etc.[p]The BGE looks hip and cool and different from any other BBQ on the market, but for the price I can get a Vermont Castings VC400 top of the line BBQ with five times the cooking area, etc.[p]Is there a long learning curve for cookign with the BGE and how long
does it take to get the carcoal lump to heat the BGE to cooking temperatures? How much cleaning and maintenance is required? [p]All the showroom guy could tell me was that its different in many ways but nothing to specific.[p]Help!
