I saw these guys at Costco, price was about $500, what do BGE owners think? http://www.beso.com/kamado-smoker-grill/search?rf=gbn

I saw them at the store and asked the sales man (who was a long time BGE user). He said they weren't as good but really didn't have much to back it up. I love my BGE so I wouldn't change it but my guess is that this is pretty comparable; maybe a notch below but still fairly good.

Generic charcoal bbq question: I plan on cooking pizzas tonight on my charcoal grill. I don't think I have an appropriate pizza stone to use underneath my pizzas....can I substitute in some heavy duty tinfoil under the pizzas? I figure I'll cook 'em at a high temp...maybe 500ish for around 10 minutes or so, but just want to make sure I don't burn the crust. I'll likely just be using some generic store-bought flatbread for the crust.

I have a Weber kettle grill for camping and tried that. A burned up crispy mess is what I ended up with.

I haven't tried pizza on my egg because I don't have a pizza stone.

You could try some clay unglazed bathroom tiles or perhaps a clay vase drip tray. You could probably jimmy up something better than foil....

Turns out I have a regular pizza stone. I assume that it is fine to use on a charcoal grill with high heat. We'll find out I guess.

I'm making that very thing for supper tonight Wink I put the pizza stone over the place setter that I bought with the egg (legs down). I think that the pizza stone (at least the one I have) is too thin to put directly on the coals ...

I'm making Ribs and Spatchcock chicken this weekend. I was going to make Smoked Meat, but I just did a brisket a few weeks ago. I'm going to try the Guru again to auto pilot the heat.

I wouldn't mind taking a look at it, which Costco did you see it in?

I need a new stone. It broke in 4 pieces last night.

So my first pizza turned out fine off the stone, and the 2nd one got the crust cremated in about 3 minutes flat. I'm not sure what exactly happened, as my temp never got over 450 on the BBQ, but maybe it was an issue with a thin pizza stone over hothothot coals. Back to the drawing board for me!

It is a turkey covered in bacon. I cooked in while camping a couple years ago in a "box oven". A box oven is essentially a big cardboard box lined with tin foil inside, with a cooking grate and some charcoal in a pie plate. It's a poor-man's charcoal bbq. And it was wonderful.

Probably just a matter of some time elapsing before account is fully accessible. I was able to view the post:
Ontario-quebec oval primo for sale
barely used oval primo for sale. Comes with stainless table, divider, pizza plate and deflectors. It is in perfect condition. Make me an offer.

The grill is one hour east of Ottawa and one hour west of Montreal. you can reach me at gerryminer@yahoo.com
