Wondering if you have an XXL and your thoughts on it. Have an opportunity to get one at a very good price (due to the newly designed 2XL).
Thanks

    I have one, it's a monster. I don't use it as often as I thought I would, still glad I bought it. With my XL and AR, I rarely need the real estate of the XXL. You can use your XL AR in the XXL. It takes a good bit of charcoal and takes awhile to get up to temp.

  • Wish I did, could only find a 2XL in my area. I love the 2XL still, I use it when I want a lot of horizontal grill space. Size comparison sitting next to my medium. They got matching thermometers last night.

    I would like to have one just because. If had just a fraction of the money that some of the high rollers have I would probably buy 2 of them. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    I have a slightly used nest, handler, mates, and cover for one......if you want to save some money. 
  • Noobie here.  So I got an 2XL, my first Big Green Egg, and love it so far.  This community is great.

    I understand that the 2XL is a relatively new product and that a lot of the accessories for it aren't quite there yet.  Specifically, I am interested in the Eggspander.  My local store (and the online catalog) has the XL, but they said that an 2XL Eggspander is not available yet.  My question is does the XL Eggspander fit on in the 2XL?  Obviously, I understand that it should fit inside a larger Egg, but I mean, does the bottom ring sit flush on the ceramic, or would I have to put it on top of the traditional convEGGtor surface, thus limiting the full circumference?  

    If it doesn't fit, are there plans to release one and if so, when?

    I've done some research on here.  What is KAB?  I see a lot of posts about how the KAB in the XL fits the 2XL.  Not quite sure what a KAB is.  I looked over the entire Big Green Egg site/accessories for something that KAB could stand for, but I can't figure it out.  It's like yall are keeping something secret from us newbies... ;)

    Thanks!
  • KAB is the Kick-Ash-Basket.  A basket for holding the charcoal.  It helps with air flow as the coals are cooking.  Great product.

    I believe accessories are very limited for the big guy.  I hope that will change with the new version.

    I have the eggspander for my 2XL and love it.  I also bought a KAB for an XL to use in my 2XL.  I used both last week for turkeys. Can’t see the KAB, but that is a eggspander for the 2XL in there.
