FAQ Subject: What about the Big Green Egg?

Hi Smokey,

I've recently discovered your website and love it! Could you answer a question for me please? I've finally decided to move up from my electric water smoker to something better. I was pretty much decided getting an Oklahoma Joe's with offset firebox but then I read raves about the Big Green Egg smokers. They seem to use less fuel, lock in moisture better and are easy to clean. But they are expensive! Can you give me a suggestion as to which type I should go with? The taste of the food is my primary concern.

Thanks very much!

Hi Bob,

Welcome to the site.

Click into "According to Smoky" and read the "Glossary" for some background, then read "Burning Wood & Blowing Smoke" for a little more then read the article on "Choosing a Grill". That one is written for gas grills but some of the questions are the same. Actually, you could benefit from a copy of "The Great American Barbecue & Grilling Manual" (check it out in The Barbecue Store at ) which has chapters on "All About Grills" which provides information on design considerations, construction, with illustrations and leads you through questions which will help you decide which is best for you. It also has plans and illustrations for making your own.

Personally, I feel that the ceramic Komodo type is limited in versatility as well as being expensive and fragile. There are ceramic grills beside the Big Green Egg which are substantially cheaper. The Ol' Smokey in the Barbecue Store will do the same thing for a lot less money.

But in the final analysis, you need to decide what is best for you.
