I gave my fancy stainless propane grill to my sister after I tried a BGE. As others have mentioned, it really spoils you for other grill types. Just like brad said, sear steaks at 800* plus or slow cook stew meat at 250* or pretty much any temp you want. After a little practice, just set the vents and leave it alone and it will maintain temp for hours. I built a table on casters so I can move it around easily.

The only negative of the BGE I can see is the $$$. I have the WSM and use a power draft system, a pitminder, which eliminates temp spikes,vent adjustments, and saves charcoal. I've done 4 butts at a time with no water in the pan and did not have to add any fuel. This set up will let you start the cooker then go to sleep, keeping very accurate temps throughout the night. Pitminder from BBQGURU is 145.00 and WSM is 209.00 with free shipping from Amazon. Here's a great site if you like to smoke: http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/

I HAVE A LG BGE. I HAVE LIFETYME SMOKER($600) THAT I HAVE GIVEN TO MY SON IN LAW. I ALSO HAVE AN ELECTRIC LIL TEX SMOKER THAT IS REAL GOOD($650), A DUCANE GAS GRILL WITH ALL OF THE EXTRAS, I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I SPENT ON IT. I HAVE HAD MANY OTHER GRILLS/SMOKERS IN THE PAST THAT HAVE BEEN THROWN BY THE SIDE. THE BGE IS BY FAR THE BEST COOKER THAT I HAVE EVER HAD. SEVERAL OF MY FRIENDS HAVE PURCHASED THEM AFTER SAMPLING MY COOKING. I GRILL & SMOKE CHIKEN, TURKEY, FISH , MEAT AND COOK CORNBREAD, PEACH COBBLER, CAKES & PIZZA ON IT. NEED I SAY MORE IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY AND DON'T FORGET TO GET EVERY ACCESSORY FOR IT.

Our BGE is one of the best things we ever bought. We have the large one. It handled our Christmas turkey.
Someone said that there is two sizes of BGE. Wrong, there is 5. Mini, small, medium, large and EX-large.

Is there room to do a two-level fire (coals piled to one side for initial searing and few or none on the other for longer roast) for a good sized steak, etc.?

2 level is not needed. Sear, close the lid and adjust airflow. Closing the lid stops flare up.

Highpoint--
Are you leaving that burner at high for four hours to get 200 degrees? Does that restrict you to usage at certain times of year?

I wonder if there are rheostats that go up to a thousand watts that can be wired in line.

Just saw one of these babies at Sam's for $695. Looked pretty big. Guess it was the extra large. Is that the standard price?
