I have a BGE and I absolutely love it! They have excellent customer service and I have a local shop in town that is an exclusive BGE distributor so they can do any kind of authorized service, parts, accessories, etc.
BGE is definitely more expensive but I know nothing of the other brands so I can't really say if the BGE is worth the extra cost.

We have a PrimoXL and it is awesome sauce! I like the oval, the split grate and made in US is a plus also. Had it a few years now and there is nothing it won't do. It does low and slow like nobody's business. One load can run 225 for 20+ hours. We also got the cyberQwifi because who doesn't need to control their smoker from their phone, tab or anywhere else on the WWW.
I doubt you will find anyone with a ceramic smoker who doesn't rave about it. They are all amazing.
I have the Big Steel Keg, Same type of cooker (only Steel) and I love it as well. Operates the same way as the BGE or other similar set ups. I have had mine for years, probably lots of options now. Once you have one of these style cookers, I can't imagine being without it.
I've had a vision since 2013 when the pool was built. We love it and it's pretty versatile. I've done pork butts, beef ribs, beer can chickens and even pizzas. Definitely worth the money, but its like the Ford, Chevy and Mercedez battle. For the extra money, the BGE or Primo gets you a little more refinement, but at the dragstrip you have more fun in the 69 Mach 1.
