Better? I think the pro's are in favor of the Summit.
The drop down charcoal grate is pretty cool. The flip up diffuser is OK.
I've never had to add fuel to my egg so it's kinda even.
The storage, the SS gasket, the ease of cleaning and lack of frailty are all big pluses for me.
I just watched a vid of a guy that did a burn test to see how long out of a full fire box (3 chimney's I believe) 50+ hours @225.
The best I've done (while cooking. He was just burning) is about 35 hours.

All that said, IF I had the money, I'd get one and keep the egg too.
The only way I could come close to doing it now is to sell the egg and probably a gun to finance it.
That guy is a brethren named baby back maniac and he's been making great videos detailing the cooker since he got it, which was early on.

Another plus is that if register your wscg weber is sending out a free cookbook.

How could I crank it up higher?
I was able to get 500+ using regular KBB.

Charcoal grate on upper position
Leaving the gas assist on for about 10 ~ 12 minutes
bottom vent fully opened
lid is completely opened

After turning off gas assist, close the lid and flip opened the top vent. Temperature climbed rapidly to reach 500+.

I'm the guy in the video. I think you're assessment is dead on except I like the flip up diffuser. It's nice to be able to access the coals just to stir them or add wood which is something we as kamado users work around by how we set up the kamados.

I probably wouldn't sell a BJKJ or BGE XL to get a Summit unless I had a good reason. The Summit is just lighter, less fragile, more convinces, and has a smaller footprint (once you account for prep space, stuff storage, charcoal storage that we all have by the grill...and sometimes weed burners and shop vacs.)

Having said that, the cooking experience itself is pretty much the same.

I love Weber Summit Charcoal more than Big Green Egg. It's worth every penny. You can read a great comparison article here: https://www.bbqqueens.com/weber-summ...-kamado-grill/
