What makes a BGE better than the rest?


I hear a lot of people swear by the BGE. I'm kind of ignorant to this subject and am curious as to why they are much better than everything else?

I think it sucks you off while your food is cooking. I'm not exactly sure that's what really happens, but based on how people praise those things, it probably does.

I just know things come out phenomenal on it. Grilled a boudin stuffed chicken last weekend on mine. Meant to cook it for 20 min at 325 on each side, but forgot about it. Ended up flipping it at the 40 min mark and let the other side go for 10 minutes. Was one of the juiciest chickens I've ever had, none of the boudin was dry at all, etc.

I have heard the ceramic keeps everything moist and keeps it from burning.

I think they look pretty cool myself.

I love mine but I won't say it's better than a primo or the other comparable ceramic cookers.

Contains moisture better, contains heat much more efficiently, can cold smoke fish and cheese at 150 degrees or sear steaks at 900 degrees and everything in between. This is for ceramics generally. I have the Primo XL and think it's the best. BGE owners feel the same way, no doubt. As do Grill Domers.

Maybe you can. I sure couldn't. I haven't had an Old Smokey since college apartment days, though. Love the temp control for long cooking on the BGE.

That is sort of the same argument as people who say, "I dont go to restaurants because I can cook better at home than any cook in a restaurant."

Sure.

The thing I like about my Primo (and I assume BGE is the same) is the efficiency. Last Saturday I filled the left side of my firebox almost full. Once at 225* (11:30 AM) I put a butt on. I pulled the butt at 9:30 PM at 195*. During the 10 hour cook, I mowed the lawn, went to the grocery store and did several other things. I never once had to babysit the cooker. That is the biggest difference I see form my old smoker and my old smokey I had in college.
