    i gotta tell ya, i LOVE my BGE! my gas grill has basically become a table next to the egg, i had a weber smoker i was quite happy with prior to getting the egg (boss gave me the egg when he got the "biggest BGE" i brought it home did a simple "salt and pepper ' pork chops, took my weber to my neighbor the next day and just gave it to him, i knew it wouldn't be used again at my house. the gas grill is essentially brand new as the wife bought it for me when my old gas grill needed rebuilding( again) ive used two tanks of Lp in it since purchase in 07.

    that said , i still quite badly want a pellet grill just to have one , i know i'd use it a lot, though i still dunno if it would completely replace my egg, there's simply no better way ive found to cook some meats (beer can chicken is the family favorite by far , i have done it over gas, in the over, and in the egg and its simply no contest) might have to whip up some chickens and try it on the one we have at the office, ryan did a turkey in it a couple weeks ago that was simply perfect. hard part is getting the boss to believe me when i show up with a bunch of chickens and a 6 pack of beer as i 'clock in" ;)

    Now THIS can get interesting. Sounds like Englander is taking the pellet grill to the next level.

    In order to get cold weather performance out of a pellet grill, it either needs to be an insulated grill like the Louisiana grills or you need to get one of the blankets for the grill.

    PS I gave away my Big Green Egg. Too much work compared to the pellet grill.

    the "work" is half the fun, similar to building a good wood fire in a stove , getting the charcoal settled, cooked out to the point you want it and all that is FUN! especially because i can knock down a couple beers on the deck "getting the grill ready" ;)

    that said , i still want a pellet grill to play with, but im not dumping the egg unless the pellet grill is beyond unbelievable, i enjoy the "process" of cooking on charcoal, its a skill, its fun for me, and like i said , its an excuse to enjoy a few beers outdoors.

    The proper term for those are "grill preparation equipment" :)

    we've put a lot into it. as far as we are able to determine (and we looked extensively) nobody else out there has a UL listing the storage area in back of the lab has quite a few "attempts" which didn't get it done so to speak. our control system is far and away more advanced than anything out there. its very similar to our "heating" stove circuit board, control is not an issue with this setup and it passed the 45 degree water test (basically the grill is subjected to a simulated downpour blown at a speed which pushed the water to a 45 degree angle for several minutes then the stove has to come on and start up with no electrical fault. its a tough test, we had to work pretty hard to get past that consistently but its able to do it now right out of the box.

    its a serious appliance

    Danm, this does sound like a serious appliance. I guess cost and all that electronics, motors etc would be the deciding difference. Low tech vs high tech. Unfortunately high tech costs more and potentially has more maintenance, issues and future cost.

    If I did not have the egg, this would be high on my watch list. Actually it still is as my "man-card" is up to date and we all know that gadgets are at the top of the check list for that :cool:
    At the same time, the older I get it seems that I appreciate simple more and more.

    My mower has a Cooler mounted on it :) (no joke, it really does. Holds a solid 4 pack with lots of ice or a 6'er with minimal ice).

    As for the Grill. When I sell the Quad in the next month or so. I may invest that money in one of these grills (Pellet in general). The Englander is near the top of the list, but for that money, it would be nice to rub on one at the store?!?

    Any way Englander wants to get some out on the Market cheap? A couple members of Hearth is all it would take ti get the "Buzz" going on how nice they are. Pics of the units and food? Just a thought? Maybe a drawing? Raffle? One member from here is all would take for a Full Spread (thread) ;)

    How bout they raffle one off to a BGE (or kamado in general) owner for a cook off :cool:

    Sorry, Mike doesnt qualify; that would be insider trading :p May have to even disqualify mods (okay that makes at least 2 less). Hmm, how many other rules can there be to whittle it down to 1 raffle ticket ?

    Mike, are any of the places (Lowes, HD, etc) going to be selling it? If so, will they have display models? As Dex said, be real nice to be able to look it over in person.
