We are cooking for 2 but I like the control. Roasting/smoking turkey are considerations, smoking alot might be the deal breaker. If I can fine a BGE for less I will go that way. Kicking my self for passing for a large one for 650 on Craigs list.
I spent a lot of time thinking about getting a BGE and after at least 6 months my wife said just do it. So I did a lot more digging and someone told me about Bubba Kegs or the Big Steel Keg (BSK). I ended up ordering a BSK from Sears and had it shipped to my local store
Here is a link to the Bubba Keg on amazon: http://amzn.to/khB4Yj
Though the Bubba Keg was replaced by the Big Steel Keg but I couldn't find those on amazon. I think the original company InZone sold the product to someone else. I still see them at my local ACE Hardware. They usually go for 599 and include a lot of stuff you have to pay extra for with the others. At the local ACE they have a deal where if you buy the grill you get the diffuser for free, though I'm not sure if that is just my local ACE that does that.
Along with my Maverick wireless thermometer (http://amzn.to/jmjqXX
) I've been really happy. The first couple of overnight smokes I did I would wake up to the alarm from the maverick because my temp was too low or high, but the last 5 or 6 that I've done I haven't been woken up and the temp is just nailed. It's probably the same for any cooker, it takes a little while to get the feel of it.
Aside from the normal smoking and grilling my favorite thing to cook on it is pizza. Comes out perfect, though I need to get a larger diameter pizza stone but I usually just make 2-4 in a row and the timing is perfect. Throw one on and there is just enough time to shape and prep the next one so as soon as it comes off I put the next one on.
