Thanks for the comments, very insightful. I will say, he was quite impressed yesterday as I lit the egg for the steaks. I had to leave for about 30 min. and asked if he would just watch the temp as it climbed and keep it around 400 until I returned and then we'd throw it open to sear the steaks. When I returned he thought the grill was struggling to get up to temp as it was stuck at 300...it was actually pegged all the way around....he was very impressed by that! I like the idea of going with a Egg and picking up a cheaper gasser for the quickness factor as that certainly will play apart for him. He is a much better cook than myself so I'd love to see what he could pull off having an Egg to do it all on!
Just received word that my warranty has been approved and my new base will be on the next shipment coming to my dealer. I hate to have to deal with this but I have had nothing but a good experience with the warranty from BGE.
