I would like some advice on a small BGE I found listed on Craigslist in my area. The unit is approx. 1 year old and they have it listed at $225.00. Comments welcome.

grate diameter is only 13".

before you spend $, determine what size meats you want to cook, what quantity to see if this is going to be ideal for you or not.

Likely can get it for $200 or less if you negotiate, but the price means little if the unit will not meet your needs.

Assuming that it doesn't have any major issues, that is a great price for a Small.

It is a bit limited in space but with some creativity you can pack a decent amount of food on it. Here's some things you can cook on a Small Egg:

I use my small more often that my larges. It's perfect for two people (two steaks, some sausages, chicken pieces, etc.) and heats up faster.

I paid $180 for mine including a table, but that we at least 4 years ago. If all of the ceramic pieces are intact I'd offer $175 and settle for $200.

Here is a Chicken on my small;

As mentioned, its a perfect size for small :roll: cooks.

Sausage, burgers (4), steaks (2) or as pictured, Spatchcocked (1) or whole (2).

I bought mine on CL, it was new in the box for $400, I say offer $200.

Thanks for the advice.
