    Going to throw an "Egg" in to the smoky mix....Green Egg that is.....Uhm...Uhm...Yummy. That Ribeye was delicshhh last night.
    We use the "small egg" to do steaks and the "big house" to smoke ribs.

    Those "Egg" cookers can make any piece of meat taste good. I could only imagine what it could do to some steaks like that. . . . . . . :yesss:.

    Lol. Yeah and those big green eggs are anything but cheap. I have been pan frying my steaks for the last few years now and my wife has said she will never go out to eat again just to get a steak.

    Ok you got me hooked I have been looking at one for a couple of years but because of the price kept walking by and never been able test one or any of my buddies own one . I have a million questions but the fist one is it better than a standard gas barbecue and how and would you buy one. Give all the details please

    Haven’t tried the egg, but I have two Traegers. Love ‘’em. Pellet fired and indirect heat. Smoke to 450 degrees. That is one place the egg has over the Traeger (high heat). I never cook on the highest temp setting anyway. Cooks unbelievable pork butt, Tri-tips, chicken, fish, veggies, pizzas, nachos, carne asada, bread, ribs, shrimp, steaks.... damn, now I am hungry. You can choose a multitude of types of wood pellets for flavor of your choosing.

    Oh, to answer the question about the gas. IMHO the Traeger is the convenience of gas with the flavor of a wood or charcoal BBQ without the hassle. Just go turn the knob to the temp you want and in about 10-15 minutes it’s at temperature and ready to rock!

    Wife has a small gas grill for quick burgers and brats, I use a charcoal/wood grill for better flavor (burgers, fish, steaks) and my smoker of course for ribs/brisket. I use an entire bag of charcoal for steaks, I want it HOT!

    The Traegers and the eggs are the most versatile though if you only have 1 device.

    Well Snoop's where to get one is a guess as good as yours. I really don't own one. My buddy @DB4SPD Derek has owned his for several years and he and I have been doing the ritual beef eating from them for just as long. He started out with the smaller egg and a couple of years later got the "Big House". I guess the secret to them is their "Fire Brick" liners. And the simple design lends themselves to get a hot fire with only moderate amounts of charcoal. I know he likes to burn the "Royal Oak" brand lump wood charcoal and then throw mesquite or apple wood chips in for flavor. Both grilles are really "seasoned" up good from long use but the bigger one just recently (last year) got a new fire brick liner under their lifetime warranty. That unit is about 11 years old. Did not cost him a penny.

    Yeah have the firebrick liner is what makes them so nice as once it’s hot it will maintain its heat.

    Snoopy if your just looking to try out smoking then I recommend what I did. Told me wife I wanted an electric smoker for Christmas and only to get me a cheap one. I think she paid $85 at Walmart. Yes it’s a small electric unit but it’s a small enough investment that if I end up not liking it we aren’t out a lot of money. That being said I have used mine 3 times now and loving it. The plan will be to run it until it dies and then upgrade to a nicer unit.
