Yeah, I agree with you. I used to grill a lot of food on both a Gasser and a regular Charcoal Weber. I had never heard about the reverse sear or the T-Rex method until I started reading through this forum and reading up more in general on the subject. I even find myself watching the Cooking channel with my wife nowadays. The egg has definitely contributed towards my general education towards cooking.
I find the egg is like taking a leap from a point and shoot camera in auto mode to a DSLR camera. The DSLR has a learning curve but puts you in complete control and you can create supremely better images. To get there takes time and effort.
However I wonder how the average egg owner compares with an egg owner that frequents egg sites like this one? I have a friend that bought an egg and love it, however I was shocked that they didn't know what a plate-setter was.
Since the device is so portable there are a bunch of interesting use cases. For example, lets say you're on vacation and the kids want to watch a Netflix movie in the hotel, you can just plug it into the HDMI port, quick setup and you're good to go.
