I never knew they had this so I checked it out. Some of the prices are around $300 and others go up into the thousands. I think we will be keeping ours for a while longer. Unless we break out and decide to start competing I don't see a need to replace something that already works.
Is the egg that much better than other grills? $300 + is a big price for something to cook on outside. If it lasts longer and cooks better than I say go for it. If not, go to Lowe's and get one on sale. You'll get the same results.
I've never seen a grill like this before. Do they have more features than a regular grill, or do they cook better? I'm not sure that I would be willing to spend that much money on something that does what my grill does now. I guess if my grill ever needs to be replaced then I might consider one like this because it seems like it takes up less room.
I have had mine for years. Finally replaced the felt around the lips. Otherwise it still looks as good as new. It is costly and you could do with cheaper but I the thing works well as an all around grill/smoker. Holds temperatures nicely without using too much charcoal. I can grill at high heat or smoke at 200 degrees, sadly not both at the same time. The round shape is a bit to get used to. The wife does pizza in it and it comes out pretty good. http://www.bbqgeeks.com/forum/media/albums/pizza-9-2014.1/

.it has a rubber gasket to keep heat in..it is ceramic..it will cook just like a oven.
We cook everything in it just like you can a stove..its expensive but once you get use to it..youll love it..well I do anyway
