Anyone really use these? My wife's parents have a Big Green Egg, so now she wants one. We already have two propane grills. To me, it seems like it would take a while to get the fire going and temp right on one of these things and it would take more work and time to cook anything, unless you planned on just smoking a turkey over a few hours or something instead of grilling up some burgers in 10 minutes.

There is a learning curve for temp control. I suggest looking at YouTube videos. The Jr is great for 1-4 people. Very efficient with charcoal. Can smoke an 8 lb pork butt7 lb brisket flat, 4 burgers, whole chicken, 2 racks of ribs or 4 small steaks. I would suggest this if you want to cook a meal for 2 (meat and veggies)

I have the classic 2 and Jr. I use the Jr more since I cook for 2.
classic is for parties or smoking big meats like brisket.

you'll need a 2ft table to put the Jr on unless you want to bend over to cook.

AGC doesn't charge tax unless you live in GA

I suggest an ash basket as your first accessory to easily shake ash out and better air flow. KJ basket is good quality but expensive. My classic uses onlyfirr basket that was $30 and still good after 2 years. Jr came with a KJ basket that was $50 at AGC from a deal.

It does Chicken (beer can and spatchcock) very well. You can build an intense fire fairly quickly so if you were searing off something cooked via sous vide.

Most kamado/BGE users recommend using lump charcoal rather than briquettes in these ceramic cookers. There is a differences in the two and that has a learning curve as well.

I bit last time this was on SD at Walmart, and I love mine. Yes it's small, but that's actually why I love it so much, it doesn't weigh 600 lbs and I don't need a 20lb bag of charcoal to fill it up.

I would not buy this is speed is your goal. They make propane and george foremans for that kind of thing so you're already set.

Do buy it if you like the 'process' of grilling.. prepping the charcoal, getting the temp up and then letting things cook. This allows you to get way longer cooks for things like pork butts and ribs. On a full load you can def do a brisket on it, but you will have to cut it down, as the main cooking space is appx 13.5" in diameter.

The soapstone lets you do indirect cooks very easily, chicken, fish, beef, pork... have done it all on this thing.

Can it do hot fast cooks? Absolutely, you pour a chimney full of charcoal in there and this thing will rocket past your oven in 5 min.

TLDR: This is a jack of all trades. It does pretty much every type of cook and your only limitation really is the amount of meat you can fit inside. Also the longest cook time on this would probably be around 12-13 hours on a slow 225F cook on a full load of lump charcoal.
