I know I saw a bunch of Big Green Egg posts on the old forum. My question is this. Are they worth it? If anyone has first hand experience, please share it. I have a chance to get one for Christmas and I'm wondering if I should get it. Thanks for the info.

Get it, get it, get it. You will thank us later. The food off the Big Green Egg will blow your mind it's so good.

It is definetly worth the money. I have a large size and the pork shoulders that come off that thing are ridiculous. Also you can et it up to around 1000 degrees and sear steaks. Now that is good. Ribs, turkey, hamburgers, everything is good. Makin me hungry just thinking about it. :hungry:hungry:hungry:hungry

you need to get the electric lighter. just lay it on the coals and it gets everything burning. get some racks to hold some of the ribs and you will be well on your way. the big green egg is well worth it.

I got a large egg last Christmas and it is by far the best grill I ever had. You can smoke a big pork butt/shoulder on there for 6 or 7 hours and it is as good as any BBQ you ever had.

As someone told me on here once, if mine was broken or missing tomorrow I would go immediately to Pinch A Penny and buy another. I am finishing up a big table to put mine in now.

I have had the 18" model for over 8 years now, are they worth it, yes they are. The trick is to use the fillerless charcoal and light it with something other than normal charcoal lighter (I use the wax coated paper blocks).

Everything tastes better cooked on it. I really don't think you can wear this thing out.

Clay, can't believe you have never heard of it, as much as it has been posted in the past.
