Ok gang, I realize everybody here is going to say how much you love your egg, and from our first hearing of them and researching online it sounds terrific.
THEN! As we've taken a few days to read a lot more on the forum here we're really wondering if it really is what we are looking for.
We read about safety issues, gasket problems, funny tastes to some of the food, grease dropping on baked things - keeping temperatures steady - and then of course we see gorgeous photos of food prepared on eggs and would love to whole heartedly get on the band wagon with the rest.
But this is a big investment not only in the egg itself but we'll have to build an outdoor area for one and we want to be convinced it is what we want to do before going to the cost and the labor.
I want to do a lot of baking outdoors, breads and pizzas in particular. Do such things pick up the smoke/grease/charcoal tastes/smells from grilling other things? Does anybody have an egg dedicated to just baking?
We cannot go to an eggfest, much as we'd like to, but we live in a remote area and there is none near us.
Any input from experienced eggers will be most appreciated
