As Tiger Woods would say: Just Do It!

Seriously, I've had mine for about 4 years and aside from the replacing the gasket on the lid I've done no maintenance. You add charcoal and rake out the ash occasionally. If you follow the thread you know the pros and cons. Put it to your wife like this, in 6-7 years you would likely go through two gas grills which is comparable in price to one BGE. I'd recommend getting a large and in a cart. You're looking in the neighborhood of $750-1000. A pizza stone is helpful as is a plate setter.

If you do it, you won't look back.

How do you know when the gasket needs replacing? Smoke comes out?

Look at it and you can see it is burned/scorched.

I don't think this thread needed it said again, but i have to.

Egg's are where it's at.

A friend has one that is at least 15 years old. Moved it out to Wyoming, back to GA, been all over the place and just keeps on cooking. Best all purpose grill/smoker out there.

The headquarters is near here in Lawrenceville, GA. Cool guys, seems like a good company.
