The copper-ish one looks familiar ... someone posted a picture of it on here the other day.

The Holland is a great gaser I've cooked on several but I have no clue on the Ceramics if they build to the same quality I would expect them to be good but it's night and day from a gaser.

They look very similar to the BGE. I have been cooking on a large egg for over 12 yrs. unreal cooker! I am a big fan of ceramics. Low and slow w no Maintence or very hot sear for steaks. Don't think you can go wrong w a Grill Dome.

I posted a pic of the copper one.

I have a Grill Dome. I really like it. I went with it over the BGE because I liked the color choices, ceramic is little thicker and the base and the lid are both machined for the gasket. I haven't changed a gasket since I bought mine. Same warranty as BGE, lifetime. Also the price I got on mine was a major factor.

I drove 22 hours round trip from PA to New Hampshire to buy a brand new G.D. for $200

Anytime I needed anything I called and got replacement with no issues.
Years back they had some paint problems in the colors but that has been resolved.

Also not sure if the BGE I used were setup correct but the auto hinge on the Grill Dome is much better than the hinge on the BGE. The Grill dome is light as feather to lift the lid. Not that egg is heavy, they G.D. is just so light.

I think any ceramic will do a great job.

I have definitely heard good things about the grill dome, but have not heard anything about the other company.

I've heard of Grill Dome. From what I've gathered, they have a good kamado for the most part, but lousy customer service.
