I know it may be considered a "wannabee" But, I love my Akorn and at the very least it has shown me what a wonderful cooker this style is! So very versatile. Dialing in the Akorn is not that tough after a couple cooks. So, if budget is a concern- as it is for many of us- not a bad bang for the buck IMO.

Love my akorn but I also want a ceramic. Hopefully towards the end of summer. I'm leaning towards the big joe or primo I would go for the egg but I think the green is ugly if they had a Big Black Egg than I would consider it.;)

They're $699 delivered from Costco and Home Depot with the exception of the HD model being the PRO (with the pull out ash drawer) but if you go into a Costco they shouldn't be more than $549. At the near end of summer they close them out for $399 and some guys even got lucky to get them for $199 with Costco just wanting them gone to make room for fall products.

If you are going to pay $699 might as well get the Kamado Joe Classic. I promise you that you won't be disappointed.

You have to ask your wifes permission to spend $300 to feed your family?

Be a man and buy something.

I can't speak to the other grills recommended here, but I would also recommend looking at the big steel keg. They are the same size as the Large BGE and come standard with a CI grate, second level SS grate, stand and grill tool for less $. They won't break if you drop them either. I find mine to be very well constructed.

Not knocking the nice Primo XL, but I've compared them side by side at my local grill store to an XL BGE.

I did not see this extra size, in fact the XL BGE appeared to have much more room.
