What is your budget? The Big Green Egg is expensive, but there are several options that you should consider as well as the Akorn. The Kamado Joe Classic, which is the same size as the Large Big Green Egg comes with cart, side tables, ash tool, and grill gripper for $799, which is about $300 less than the comparable BGE. You should also look at the Vision Classic that is available through Costco (I believe). It's an excellent ceramic kamado and it rings in a little less than the Kamado Joe.
