I've done them on the grill before, but I think it's time to try them on the smoker. I wish I had a tiny little electric smoker. Something portable I can take to friend's houses.

Not electric but certainly portable. I have the full-sized one & am really liking it.

Have you compared that to the big green egg?

I have to wonder if the actual big green egg is worth the money or if you are merely paying for some green paint and a name.

The BGE is ceramic & definitely a higher quality product than the Char-Griller but way out of my price range. I picked up the Akorn @ Menards for $250, so far, so good.

I love my BGE. I haven't seen the Akorn you showed above in person but the product description lists it as steel with double walled insulation. That's a huge difference from a full ceramic cooker.

My guess is if you found two similar specced ceramic cookers, that they would perform reasonably the same. In that case a cheaper vendor than the BGE would be a better bang for the buck..

The BGE is massive, thick and heavy, holds temps like a champ and is versatile like crazy. I've cooked everything on it from steaks, to fish, to smoking, to baking. Sure it's expensive up front, but I fully expect barring unforeseen circumstances that my 2yr old will be cooking on it as an adult.

What many people don't know is that the big green egg is not the first kamado style grill. It is merely the most popular. Kamado grills have been around for a long time.
