extra large versus large

Is the extra large harder to cook with than the large?

    Not at all, sometimes easier. There are pros and cons, depends on what you want it to do and how much you cook.

    This post will answer a lot of your questions.

    I wouldnt say that cooking is any harder to do on the large vs. extra large. Both are easy to maintain temps on. In my opinion the set up for the large is just a smoother process as the platesetter is easier to use but the xl has alot more cooking room but you would be suprised at how much you can cook on the large as well.

    No. They each have their differences, so just make sure you get enough cooking space for your purpose. I have both, and so far the LBGE is the more flexible of the two, but I certainly would not be in dire straits if the XL was my only cooker ;) Beats a smoker/kettle/gasser any day of the week.

    No. To me, the XL is almost easier with its extra room, and temp control is steady as a rock.
