Totally agree with you. It is a great product and makes some EGG-selent food.

Although, we have dinner reservations Saturday night with some friends.

The Egg is just so versatile. I do Pizza, veggies, potatoes, pork, fish, beef, chicken. Heck, I did chocolate chip cookies on my plate setter once.


Sounds like a great time I want to try your pork, what sause do you finish it up with? I will also have a serving of that cornbread.

I put out a few sauces. I make a NC vinegar and than just by some Sweet Baby Ray's to put out.

No, it is a cornbread casserole. It is creamed corn, sour cream and jiffy cornbread mix in a casserole. It is good!

I looked at these and they seem pretty cool. My question is are they really as good as they claim to be. And how are they in expense wise compared to a gas grill. Gas refills vs the lump charcoal...etc??

Gas grill vs charcoal grill, to different animals. Convenience gas, taste charcoal.

I believe the EGG heads on here are trying to say its a smoker, baker, pizza maker and a steak and cheekin grill.

I've never owned a gas grill, never will, so I can't compare costs. A 20 lb bag of lump charcoal is about $10-$15 and will last a long time. I got tired of dealing with tons of ash, rust, and replacing Weber kettles every couple of years and switched to the BGE a couple of years ago. IMHO, it's every bit as good as they claim it is. It has exceeded my expectations in every way.

As mentioned...gas = convenience and that's about all there is to recommend it. Nobody buys a gas grill because they prefer the taste to charcoal. Personally, I've always felt that if you're going to cook a steak on a gas grill, you might as well broil it in the oven.

Best left to the men anyway, don't worry your pretty little head about it. Now run along and get that ironing done.

Almost correct, the new pro gas grills can sear steaks at very high temps and produce a great steak. They are similar to how Ruth Chris does theirs under infrared broilers.

Still hard to beat charcoal grilled steak.
