Default Egg cooking comparison feedback

Hi all,

Anyone who has cooked on both a large and an XL notice a difference in how they cook? I may be wrong but it looks as though the XL is more shallow and closer to the fire ring.

I own a large and a small. I've cooked next to XL's at our Eggfest, and 2 buddies have them. The headroom is shorter, but I think they have changed the fire ring height to give you more room. Everyone does say it's easy to get the pit temp higher than what you want, but once they practice with vent control it's no big deal.... just different than a large is.

The XL is really big compared to a large. Tom at ceramicgrillstore.com has a lump reducing ring to use if you are doing a smaller cook in the XL Egg.

Also FYI...., Primo has just come out with a special Jack Daniels XL Oval edition, and is planning a Large Oval (which will be in-between the Oval Jr., and the XL Oval.)

Of the Large Oval, no. I saw the JD edition XL in a "cool new stuff" thread on the P forum. It was taken at some event today in Florida.

Whoa, I just saw a new XXL (or Double XL) Egg in the Green Room. 29" cooking grid.

Great info. I did not know about the primo oval, looks like competition in the ceramic grill industry is spurring these new models. Thats a healthy thing. I am about ready to get one so not sure if I can hold out for the new Primo.
