Pros: Excellent heat control and stability
I love my BGE! When I bought it and started putting it together, I was concerned it was too big, and caused me to re-think the size. After using it for the past year and a half, I do not regret spending the extra money to have the most grill space possible. I use it cooking for my family of 4, used it for BBQ competitions, and parties. I have enough space to BBQ 3-4 pork butts at a time. Or if I want to cook a few steaks for the family I can do it. I live in Fairbanks Alaska where is gets down to -40F in the winter. I have BBQ'd at -10F without problems, and I know I won't have problems in colder temps. When cooking in the cold, I am only limited by what my body can stand, frost bite isn't good when BBQ'ing.
I have no regrets about this investment, and I am proud to be an Egg-Head
