I've been a pellethead for years, but I'm also an Egghead. I see no reason to try to adapt an external burner to an Egg. I have run my large Egg for over 20 hours at 240 degrees on one load of lump. When I do have to open the lid it recovers temperature within 10 minutes, 15 if it's very cold out side. Why add extra cost to something that works extremely well as it is.

I have to disagree here. Maybe Traeger has temperature swings, but my FEC-100 and Memphis Pro do not. Once they are up to temp they hold temp very well.
