It is a green ceramic grill similar in shape to an egg.

The Egg is great because the ceramic body keeps the heat in so you can grill in really cold weather and cook more food with less fuel.

Have you ever gone to the Egg Fests in Ocala at Silver River State Park?
I haven't made it to one there yet. I went to the Egg Fest in Atlanta in 2006. That was good fun.

This is smaller, but a lot more fun. It should be about ready to go off for '08, I'm sure there are details at the BGE forum. Good way to get a discounted unit )demo), too

I think mine looks like a big avacado to be truthful.

Bge

Would you believe I got my BGE in Okinawa in about 1964. Expensive? Yes, if memory serve me I paid about $9.00 US for it.

Served me well the two years I was in Okinawa, brought it back to the states. Used it for another year or so. When I got my gas BBQ I gave it to my daughter as marriage gift.

Most things I cooked had the smoke flavor plus the ease of grilling. The temperature was very easy to control. My favorite was Flank Steak.

Enjoy,
Charlie

The egg comes with a lifetime guarantee, I think... the company stands behind it. Look on their site (www biggreenegg com), and you can get great deals on demo units used at Eggfests. They get used for a weekend, and you take them home, saving hundreds, still with the guarantee.

I just got an XL, and used it all day Sunday. Using about 7 lbs of lump charcoal and some wood chunks, I first baked French country bread, then grilled scallops, then smoked a prime rib, then baked puff pastries. I've never used a unit that would do all of that so well and with so little fuel.
