Does anyone really need a $1,000-plus kamado grill?
For that price, you might expect an actual fossilized dinosaur egg, not a grill that looks like one. After all, some of the top-rated gas models cost a quarter of that price and you can snag one of the best kettle- or barrel-style charcoal grills for as little as a $100. In summary, the Egg is excellent at cooking, just like every kamado grill that was tested, but big differences appear in features, convenience, and cleaning.
