    Finally bought a Big Green Egg!

    I've been wanting a ceramic grill for a few years, just didn't want to spend >$1000.
    The Big Green Egg, Grill Dome, and Primo's all had my interest. I'd never seen one near me on Craigslist until a few weeks ago. I bought a like new Large BGE with nest, side tables, and a platesetter for $500.

    So far I'm loving it. I smoked a Pork shoulder for 18 hours at 230 degrees without ever messing with the Lump charcoal, and had enough left to bring it up to 350 degrees and cook a "spatchcocked" chicken for an hour. Both were fantastic. Will be doing an 8 lb Brisket this weekend.

    Very nice! I'm just now getting into smoking but I've been looking long enough to know those are top notch and go for top dollar. You found a great deal!

    I have one, the wireless upgrade hasn't worked for me yet, but it is a great thing. I gotta send it in to get it sorted out, but it's indisposable for peace of mind overnight smokes.

    Something else OP may want to look into is a Woo3 (I think I'm calling it correctly) setup, it's a ring, smaller pizza stone, and an extension grate, I can smoke ~4-5 butts on my large egg with that running



    the superbowl butt


    If you haven't found it already, the nakedwhiz has a TON of good info.

    why do you have your butt in a metal pan? I've never put my butts, briskets, ribs etc into a pan....I do Foil my ribs, but that's about it...Just curious.
