I'm thinking about buying a Big Green Egg. Does anyone own one of these? I can buy the large with the nesting cradle and the fold down shelves for $609 plus tax. It looks really cool and it may be my all-in-one griller/BBQ/smoker I've been looking for. Anything special one should know about it? I'll be using for ribs, chicken, steak, roasts, smoking fish, and even maybe a pizza or two.

I have heard they work really good. But I have never seen one in action.
The shop where I bought my fireplace insert sell the Egg's and I checked it out when I was there.
They look really well made and they are HEAVY. The only down side I thought was the cooking capacity it seemed a little small inside.

I was a little disappointed that it doesn't have a second tray level too. The large egg weighs in at 140lbs :eek:

I see an optional grill extender that doubles the capacity. I guess I'll have to get that accessory too.

My bosses' dad is a spokesperson for the Big Green Egg in Florida. My boss got one for Christmas and thinks its the coolest thing around. My administrative assistant is retiring at the end of the month (with her gone my IQ will go down by at least 50 points) and I challenged my boss to a pulled pork cook-off for her going away party. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thats a good price. I'd be running to pick it up.

My buddy cooks on his all the time....so we go over to his house all the time. I'll be getting one as soon as I have a place to put it. They hold heat very well, can get quite hot, and I think you'd have a hard time finding a BGE owner that would switch to anything else.

I'm going to buy it here in another month or so. My mom just started to sell them at Rich's so I get a pretty good deal. I just wanted to see if there were any happy owners that could tell me more.
