Big Green Egg???

Are they worth the $$$? I know some people swear by them but it sure is alot of money to cook! My Aussie seems to do just fine.

Google it. They seem pretty cool. Porcelain lined grill that is green and sorta egg shaped. The big problem is that they are around $700.00! OUCH!!!

They hold heat really well, and it's said that because it takes so little charcoal to cook, a bag of charcoal will last a long time. But they are also heavy, so take that into consideration.
I know a lot of people swear by them, but I can't see spending that much money on a charcoal cooker.

The green eggs are really efficient. I don't have one but have seen them in use. I personally use a weber smokey mountain (WSM) smoker with wonderful results for less than half the price (as well as weight). Here is a great website for the WSM. We have used ours and fed 2 dozen neighboring campers while doing so.

It will last a very long time, no rust. The temperature is easily maintained and cooks evenly with a great smokey flavor and uses very little charcoal. Ribs do not have to be pre-cooked in the oven or boiled and come out perfect with minimal preparation. We love making brick oven pizza on the indirect heat plate setter. The Large egg weighs 140 pounds, the small one weighs 65 pounds so they are a bit heavy for camping.

They are really nice for a home grill, around the pool, or on a deck. I think they are to heavy and bulky for camping, not the most portable thing IMO.
