    Summary: I purchased a large Big Green Egg grill/smoker for my husband for Father's Day. He enjoys grilling and, while I consider myself a very good cook, I have never mastered the outdoor grill. The Egg promised to be idiot-proof, so I thought it would be a ... read more

    Pros: Easy to keeps temp, does not dry food, easy to use
    Cons: No factory online ordering especially for parts

    Summary: We purchased a lake house that had a BGE on the back deck that the previous owners left. I thought this thing is useless and it needs to go "after all we have a propane grill". It was dirty, the grate was caked with junk, hinges were rusty, it was a ... read more
