Weber's cannot smoke, cold smoke, etc. I like webers, I use them, but they are nowhere near as capable as the Egg is.

I've had my Green Egg for almost 5 years. I use it most the time instead of the Tec grill.

costco has the med one for 580 not sure what comes with it. I think the nest and the side tables. They also have the vision classic which is bigger that comes with all of that and a cover for 550. Which one is the better one to get?

I craigslisted my trager a week after I got my primo ( like bge, different company). And not only can I cook a pie on my primo, I've won both bbq and pie contests with it. You have received VERY bad info about ceramic grills.

not downing the egg here, they are great. However, anyone considering them should look at a primo as well. They are the same style grill (ceramic). I have used both the bge and the primo and choose the primo because I felt like it was more versatile (more grill for the money). Either way, they are imho the best two grills on the market. My wife won't go out anymore cause she doesn't like restaurant food. She makes me cook. We also do our own deli meats, jerky, bread, wood fired pizza, etc etc etc. It actually paid for itself in deli meats in a little over a year (5 popple in our family, 3 teen boys- we eat a lot of deli meat). It's worth the money.

That's awesome that you cook so much on your kamado, lunch meats are an awesome way to use smoke healthily.

What is the device for indirect cooking on the primo exactly?

Do you have a stoker?

I just put mine out in the rain making pulled pork for the weekend.

I do not have a big green egg, but I do have a Weber smokey mountain cooker, and it indeed smokes very well. Bear in mind that the Weber Smoke Mountain is not normally sold in stores, so many people are not aware of it. It is a bullet smoker Vertical cylinder with fire box and vents on the bottom, and vent on top. I cooked a brisket today with it and it requires very little attention to keep temperature. 8 hours at 250 with only a few adjustments early on. Look it up on the net there is an entire community devoted to these. Also read the Amazon.com reviews. Personally I think the BGE is probably a great unit but the cost is really high, you can get a new Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker for 299 new.

Is the weber guaranteed for life? Can you make pizza on it?

I have a BGE and a four burner gas grill (I need to find a new home for). I never use gas. BGE is easy to use, once you learn to use then...

As someone who just added a medium to a fleet of the four other sizes, I'd advise that the Large is the best of the lot. Unless we have company, the large and the mini are the go-to grills. The x-large was great when the kids were home every night but now only gets used for parties or overnight cooks. The small is the least favorite ... feel the bottom air vent is under designed.
