No contest for your climate, get the BGE. The Egg is a great cooker but the nest is not useable and the accessories over priced IMHO. Most Eggr's build a table and treasure them for years. The Vision Classic Kamado comes with a nice nest, cover, second rack that needs a bit of attention and decent folding shelves-- a great value. If you can swing it a Big Joe would be high on my list but I don't own one.
Thin metal with cool/cold wind and/or rain prevent consistant smoking here in MO.
