Yeah, as great as the bge is, after reading into it, i personally prefer the kamado joe and primo, especially in the xl sizes.
But ya, I would also recommend getting an akorn and maybe a wsm or pbc.

Edit: It's 30$ more than the Lowe's one ($329.99)
I can't seem to find it listed online on Home Depot's site. When did they start carrying this?

The Primo is a super fine kamado. I'm a fan of them as well as the Kamado Joe and Big Green Egg. Out of the three, I think the Kamado Joe is the best bang for the buck because of it's price point. As far as cooking is concerned, I don't think there is a dime's difference between the three.

I just got a primo and I absolutely love it IMO it's worth the money

The oval shape of the Primo XL sets it apart. Of course that all depends on your budget. If you are tight for money, the UDS + chargriller option is not a bad way to go. I have a Primo and big daddy smoker (UDS). When I am smoking low and slow, I use the UDS. The Primo is used more for grilling these days, but works very well for smoking too.
