I certainly enjoyed cooking on the Big Green Egg at the recent Eggfest. I had never seen one let alone cook on one. I must say it the best over all cooker and grill I have ever used. You can use it as a grill as well as a smoker. We set it up to smoke and with out adding any charcoal we maintained 300 degrees +/- 4 degree’s from 9:00am until 3:30pm with out touching the smoker. We also cooked ribs and won first place in the Eggfest cooking contest. Highly recommend this product.
