    That's tiny for a class A. Been debating whether to go class A or C myself.

    Did you put water/liquid in the drip pan?
  • Re: Brisket Flat or Small Packer?

    Your chances for a success are much better with a full packer. You will learn more, and if the flat comes out too dry you will probably still have the moist point to enjoy, and can use the flat for chili or chopped sandwiches.
  • Re: OT: The "Devastated" Thread

    @nolaegghead you are the best devil's advocate I have ever met!  Your ability to make someone stand back and re-asses is fun to watch.  Either that or I am to empathetic.

    The man just implied that you are at best an intolerant segragationist, and at worst a racist. All for not embracing a massive trolling thread on a cooking forum?

    Where is the epiphany in that?

    I haven't personally cooked on one, but a lot of respectable posters on this thread and threads alike have. The reasons to buy BGE over any other ceramic cooker seem moot aside from price. BGE IS the premium brand for ceramic cookers. 
    I think this is what it boils down to: 

    Do you want to show up to the party in a Bentley or a in a Ford. 
    I have owned both...BGE has rested on it's laurels for far too long I'm afraid.

    Folks can come up with justifications of BGE superiority due to Eggfests, perceived necessity of a larger dealer network, forum content, hecho-en-Mexico-Space-Shuttle-ceramic loyalty, or whatever they wish. Most, if not all of that logic is so subjective as to be unassailable. However, I must say with all honesty that the Big Joe on my patio is a far superior design and value to the more expensive LBGE that I sold off. I'm not referring to its increased size over the LBGE & XLBGE either...

    The hinges are better (I got so sick of F'n with that stupid overbite), the gasket is better, the D&C grid is phenomenally better, including the accessories is better, ceramic mass is better, product development is better (love the pull out ash tray!).

    I will give BGE a slight edge on fit and finish, It's appearance is a wee bit more polished.

    The made in China from toxic waste arguement is similar to the "rice burner" stink eye treatment you can expect to receive if you were to ride in to Sturgis on a Goldwing. That is a much closer analogy to what we see here in my view.

    Super Respected Poster can say whatever they want about my "second tier kamado" that just made last night's brisket...I know better.

    Also, I come her now and see many more train wreck threads than I ever recall seeing when I first joined. It's a shame really.

    Going back to biting my tongue now.
