If you're interested in the Egg but the price is an issue, see about getting an demo from an Eggfest... It will have been used once... at the Eggfest... and will be about $200 cheaper than it would be otherwise. You could even sign up to cook and then your egg would be brand new! Did one Eggfest and it was a blast. Probably have to wait until next season, though.
You're in a win-win situation. Enjoy your new cooker.
Whatever you get, I'd suggest this...
You might use it only once or twice but it will be worth it.
