The Big Steel Keg (Formerly model 2000) lacks the cast iron grid, the swing away upper grid and wheels. It sells for about $650. I think the more expensive one is worth the difference. If you decide on ceramic (I love my Egg), consider the Kamado Joe... Accessories such as the stand and side shelves are standard and the price is usually $100-200 less than the BGE.

AH man, I didnt know. The one I was looking at was 650$ from sams club. I figured it came with the wheel stand and side shelves and what not, but maybe not?? I will check into that thanks

I had an electric then moved to a Traeger. My opinion is you'll still be wondering "where is the smoke". I had the little tex as well. The only way I could get a decent smoke flavor was to put it on the smoke setting, 180 degrees....I had it for a year and never did like it for a smoker.I sold it and bought an Oklahoma joes longhorn. Not the best pit out there but suits me for now.

I had a traeger for a little while...didn't like the flavor...sold it. I had a BGE large for a while...it cooked fine, but in my opinion not any better than my weber kettle, and if I wanted low and slow I used my stickburner or WSM because capacity was limited on the BGE...sold it. So how does this help you? I don't know. I'd say buy a 22.5" WSM for low and slow, and a 22.5 OTG for searing steaks and grilling. You can buy a lot of meat if you've only spent $550 for the WSM and OTG compared to the cost of a BGE and Traeger.

what he said. this is the best advice i have read and he is 100% right. 22 WSM and 22 OTG will do it all.
