  • Re: OT....BGE vs Joe

    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.

  • Re: Devastated

    I feel your pain.

    The other day I was cleaning out my garage and while moving a cardboard box overhead, a caulking gun that I didn't realize was laying on top of that box slipped off and landed squarely on top of the gas tank of my (previously) flawless 95' Ducati 916.

    I smashed that piece of crap caulking gun until it was completely unrecognizable. Many words were expelled with great rage, wholly unfit to be mentioned here.

    Now the neighbors look at me weird.

    Sorry, you need to go to a motorcycle forum to get help. We're all about eggs here
    I would gladly pay for it if there was another perfect one left on the planet...

  • Re: What's your biggest BGE Bonehead Mistake? Mine killed 2 10lb butts.

    I overcooked some wild deer sausage once. Ran it at 250ish indirect for about 1.5hr because I wanted to be sure it was COMPLETELY food safe. It ended up being way too dry and hard to serve. I threw it in the fridge and considered using it later in a batch of chili.

    Every so often I would cut a bite-sized slice off of the link to sample and eventually it hit me. I dug out some crackers and jalepeno cheddar cheese I had, and went to town.

    Apparently I had just stumbled upon how to prepare a deer summer sausage snack tray. Now I cook sausage that way on purpose.
