    How much pre-heat time does it take to get one up to 600 degrees? I am considering building my own smoker but I may just go with one of these instead.

    Just a bit of input.....recently bought a Traeger Pellet Grill from Cabelas instead of a Kamoto.... Love it!! I was researching the Black Olive before the purchase which is a pellet fired Kamoto. I think it would truely be the answer for no muss no fuss BBQing. But it was 4 times the cost of the Cabelas unit.

    Love my BGE. Only problem is my wife wants me do do all the cooking now. I agree that you need to get a place setter to cook a variety of foods. I have cooked a brisket, smoked a turkey, grilled great steaks, barbequed chicken, and smoked a specklebelly on my Egg. Very easy to control temperature and a lot of resources to help figure out how to cook almost anything.

    I've never heard any negatives. The control of the temp is the biggest thing with the egg. Lot's of control to dial in the temp.
