My large egg has been the perfect size for us so far - typically during grilling season I'll cook for between 5 and 15 people and get food cranked out with no problem. For briskets, etc, I've never had trouble fitting anything on.
I can vouch for the tandoor. 900 degrees is totally doable, although you'll want to upgrade to the high-temp felt lining, because the standard stuff melts at around 600 I believe. Use the "T-Rex" method to get it way up there for steaks and things.
Also, DO NOT PUT IT TOGETHER BY YOURSELF (if at all possible). Have the guy from the shop come down and put it together. We had to take ours apart for the trip overseas and when I put it back together the lid wasn't seated quite right, and it's a b**** b**** b**** to put on correctly. It'll be worth it. Also, build a nest. The tiny nest that comes with it is nice, especially with the little flip-up side tables, but you'll be thankful for all the extra prep space if you build a bigger one. Plans are available on the BGE site for free fitty.
