Big green egg vs primo
Almost bought one of these last year and seriously considering it again.
My current set up is a chargriller smoking pro with side box for smoker. Weber genesis for propane and classic weber for charcoal
1 Would it be worth considering what I already have
2 would the small or medium be even worth considering vs the large and xl. (Could small or m be easily transported for tailgates
3. What are the major differences in the two. I have dealers of both in the area.
1. If you have the money, yes.
2. No. I would probably take what you have now to the tailgate, instead of buying a S or M,IMO.
3. BGE has been one of the first kamado grills/smokers out there.
I recently bought the vision kamado grill. I love it.
Hope this helps.
I have a BGE, I love it. If I had the money I would buy the primo XL oval. I would buy at least a large though. If you go large it would buy the BGE. These aren't exactly the kind of grill you'd want to lug around to tailgates, they are ceramic and you don't want to break it. Attached is a badd ass tailgate grill IMO.
1. I would sell the Chargriller and the classic Weber and buy an XL BGE or Primo If you have the money, as it could easily replace both. It's nice to have a gas grill around for entertaining, so I would keep the Genesis.
2. Even the small and medium ceramic cookers are pretty heavy. The Primo I have is the smallest one they make, and it isn't what I would call easily transportable. I'd also be worried about it moving around and cracking if it weren't secure.
3. The major difference between the Primo and the BGE is that you can get the Primo in an oval design, while the BGE models are all round. The oval design helps with offset cooking, but I would just buy the one you get the better deal on. They are all about the same.

I just have the M BGE and it is awesome.. Cooked these on a friends BGE this weekend watching some bball.. Smoked em for 5 hours.. Applewood smoked
Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
So jealous of everyone in this thread. Last March it was in the 70s here in Chicago. This year it's the 30s or low 40s. I'm dying to bust out my smoker and get some brisket, shoulder and turkey thigh going. Also bought a meat grinder to try my hand at hot links this summer, but I've never made sausage in my life haha. Hopefully I can figure it out.
Why can't you smoke when it's that cold?
Grilled a couple of pizzas and a calzone last night in a Kamado
Publix paper plates?
Just not ideal weather for it. It has snowed some here and for the most part been overcast and crappy. When I smoke I like to have people over, sit outside and have some beers and enjoy the weather. Also the cold messes with the temp of the smoker a little bit. I've tried a few times and it's just been a pain in the ass and the my friends end up waiting for an hour or two longer and don't like eating at 9 PM haha.
Thanks for the reply everyone.
The oval shape does intrigue me for off set cooking. The big green egg having more accessories and support may be a factor also.
Its a tough choice for such expensive grills.
I gotcha. Never had to deal with that. Lol
You can't go wrong with any ceramic komado grill honestly. The grill 01 bought is just like the large BGE but about $300 cheaper.
