Hi been a while. I have a decent ECB that Ive used for a couple smokes with pretty decent success. It does take nearly constant babysitting though. well Im getting a decent bonus from work and Ive wanted a Kamado for some time now. All I really knew about for a while was the BGE, now there seems to be a lot more that are out there. So the question....go with the BGE or is there another one that may be better? Im opened to just about anything aside from the really expensive ones like the Komodo Kamados or those super cheap carbroils.
