Plus, they hardly use any fuel, they don’t keep burning up the charcoal once you shut the air flow off. I can do many cooks with a 20 pound bag of lump charcoal. And they don’t seem to wear out or rust out. I’ve change a gasket, that’s about it.

The downsides are they aren’t portable. The cook surface isn’t all that big. And they cost more to get into, but after a while, that probably evens out with having to buy less fuel and not having them burn or rust out.

It’s like having a grill and an oven and a smoker rolled into one unit. I use an electric starter and those last a long time. They cost about $10. No lighter fluid to buy. Lump charcoal burns with a lot less ash and waste. I put chunks of whatever wood, oak, Cherry, hickory, orange, I want to add flavor.

SPOT ON WITH MY THOUGHTS ON KAMADOS too. I use it as a pizza oven. As a smoker. As a grill. look up Costo Kamado Joe Roadshow. When they come around its about $400 off the price. But you cant go wrong with a BGE, Or any other brand. My suggestion Get the largest you are will to Pay for. Mine is 24" I believe.... Just right for me.
