With all the food I've been seeing cooked on here has made me purty dern interested in getting 1. Me and the ole lady's BDAY's are this and next week and might go ahead and get 1. We do a bit of grilling on conventional gas grill and have a big smoker and just wanted to know the in's and out's of the BGE? I would be getting the large 1 since there are 5 in my family and cook fer friends and family a few times a year. But after looking up all the accessories that there are, what kinds of accessories are must haves and what accessories have ya'll thought you needed and don't use?

Any assistance will be GREAT!!!:letsdrink

Jason, we are going to be grilling steaks for my birthday next week, if you wanna load up the family and bring them over we can throw on a few more and I can show you the ropes with it. They are exspensive but they are worth every penny. You gotta have the indrect plate setter, pizza stone, sitting chicken just to get you started. Also the electric starter is a great thing to have as well.

Con: RAKE the coals EVERY time you use it and make sure all the holes are clear (not hard but you have to do it everytime... rake the dust out frequently (too much dust under the firebox will lower the temp and make it harder to control) Again, not hard but a little messy.

Con: Temp control takes awhile to get a real handle on as compared to your gas grill

PRO: EVERYTHING tastes GREAT!!!

The spring assist hinge comes with it.My opinion, Plate setter, pizza stone (pamperedchef will do fine), rib/roast rack, coal rake and electric starter for natural coal. Have fun!

Be careful using the Pampered Chef pizza stone. Mine broke in two the second time I used it. I'll see if I can get the pic from my phone. I was cooking my second pizza. About 5 minutes in, I heard a loud thump. Opened the lid and removed the pizza. That is exactly how I found the stone. I did not move it.

Nothing else compares to it. Ive had one for about 5 years and once you figure it out it is unreal . You can sear ribeyes at 700 degrees or slow cook boston butts at 225. Its the best thing I have ever seen and I use it 4 times a week.
