A BIG, GREEN EGG!
Eileen surprised me yesterday evening, no particular occasion. Now I got to learn how to use it.

Congrats, Drew. Have never used a BGE but hear nice words about them. You'll probably use lump charcoal for fuel; I've used wood smokers since the late 80's - same idea. All I can say is practice, practice, practice.

So ugly it do be cute. There's a bunch of dealers close to the shack so I'll look at the sucker. WW

That's great, Drew! Big enough to be useful! Just don't let that sucker fall on your foot...

I'm trying to figure out how to move my smaller pit up to daughter and SIL about 175 miles away.... built it in '99 and now they'd like to have it.... weighs in the neighborhood of 500-600 lb. Planning to install a power hoist on the utility trailer... It looks something like David Klose's 20"X36" pipe smoker, only mine is 24"X36" (Klose is the premier builder of wood smokers these days; see his pits at [url=http://www.bbqpits.com).]www.bbqpits.com).[/url]

Drew, your kamodo (sp) design is probably the most efficient style available. My "offset" is definitely not.... to cook a load of brisket, I have to tend the fire constantly, adding 3-4 oak logs every 45 minutes or so. That makes for a long night. It's only advantage is its shape, lending itself to trailering (and a chain hoist is required to even lift it). You'll like that egg.

Gil, I looked at David Klose's smokers several years ago but couldn't justify the price...he has pretty cool stuff though.
