  • Weber WSM + Weber Performer < XL BGE

    Hi everyone, first ever post and although I'm not worthy to be called an EggHead yet, I am seriously on the brink of unloading all my Webers in order to join the green team. These Webers are great but I want something more substantial and one thing that will grill, smoke, bake, roast and whatever else I want to do on one cooker instead of two. Patio space is getting limited with all these grills and smokers (I also have a gasser) and I think by getting a BGE, this would solve this problem and give us more room on the patio.'s the only reason my wife is even entertaining the idea of getting a BGE.

    So I ask you fine my equation in the title correct? Is an XLBGE greater than the weber duo and then some?

    I know the space is definitely going to be a benefit, the temperature control especially during inclement weather is far better than the Webers, the BGE can cook for hours on end without adding extra fuel and the most important's just way cooler than the Webers. 

    What else am I missing? Good or bad? How about the taste of the food cooked? Same or better on the BGE and why? 

    I apologize for all the questions, just worried about making a very expensive mistake.




  • Any Canadian's purchase their Egg in the US?

    Thinking about going over the border to purchase my egg because it's a lot cheaper and I refuse to pay the CDN mark ups. It's just ricockulous if you as me,

    I know about the warranty concerns and I have no problems going back to the US dealer should I need to so this is not an issue.

    I was just wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences when they bot their egg in the US and bringing it over the border. Did you have any issues, were the duties higher or lower than expected, any other issues that came up?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  • Can Lump go stale?

    Not sure if calling it stale is the proper term to use but I ask....can lump go bad over time? If so what is the shelf life and what happens when it does go bad? Does it burn weaker or smell different or deteriorate into smaller pieces over time?
    I have four bags of lump from Feb 2012 and I'm wondering if its still good.
