    my BIL has one, and he cooks about anything in it. Can control temperature almost same as in oven. He loves it, but then, he also paid R10 000 for it.

    i looked at the green egg to smoke some meat for a xmas party but it couldn't do the quantity i was after, so i modified a wine barrel. whole setup cost me just over a grand and took a couple of hours to make.

    slow smoked about 10kgs of brisket for just over 12 hours without needing to refill the chimney. delicious delicious murder...
