Pros: Easy to be a great cook with the BGE!
Cons: Accessories are expensive!
The BGE is the bomb! Before getting it, I had never had a smoker and had never smoked any type of meat. First try was 2 chickens and they were off the chain! Have cooked chickens, turkey breasts, steaks and all have turned out wonderful! Easy learning curve on how to control temperature. My problem is deciding what recipe to use next! It can grill @ high temp and cook for hours @ low temps. Be sure to get the plate deflector so you can cook by indirect heat. Unless something BETTER than a BGE comes out, this is my grill/smoker for as long as I can see!
