Big Green Egg

We bought this Big Green Egg for only $26,000 but they threw in a new Hemisphere as an incentive!

We've slow cooked Pork shoulder, hamburgers, Dutch Oven Curry and veggies, briskett. WOW what a way to cook!

I knew BGE's Were expensive.....but man I have heard nothing but good things about these. I thought long and hard before buying my last grill....ultimately stuck with the weber kettle.

We purchased our TT at the Ohio RV Show in Cleveland this past January and BGE's were an incentive by our dealer, Avalon RV; Medina, OH. I think other FR dealers were given them too.

Those are some awesome smoker/grills. I have the steel version called the Broil King Keg (Used to be the Big Steel Keg and before that Bubba Keg). They turn some amazing barbecue but you don't want to have to move that egg around very far. I'd take one with a TT purchase though .

Heavy is right. They had to use a forklift to get it in the truck. Luckily, when I broke down the shipping container, the heaviest piece was the bottom shell which weighed in at about 75lbs. Assembled i guess about 160 - 165#. We're parked at a seasonal site so it won't get moved other than on it's casters!

For $26,000 it should not only cook great,but serve the food on silver platters with music and wine.

Can't bring myself to pay that much for something so appropriately named: EGG

I'd be paranoid of tipping it over and watching it shatter.

I'm thinking oxcamper meant to say perhaps $260.00 and not $26.000 - I've heard they are good,but not that good.

Nahh, he meant he paid 26K for the RV and got the egg with the deal.

Here's a review on the big green egg grill;

http://bbq.about.com/od/smokerreview...apr072405b.htm

The "nest" (wheels and frame) runs around $150.00

It looks like the large size is around $800.00

See what I mean about paranoia about it tipping over and shattering?

On second read I think you're correct.
