Big Green Egg
Luxury smoker/grill combination
Though some come close, no smoker can match the temperature control afforded by the thick-walled, charcoal-fueled 18-inch Big Green Egg. This Kamado-style cooker not only smokes meat at low temperatures, it can also get searingly hot, so you can use it to bake bread or pizza or put a proper crust on steaks. The ceramic Big Green Egg, which also comes in 24-inch, 15-inch, 13-inch and 9-inch sizes, can maintain its temperature in pretty much any weather. It's heavy and very expensive, but if you're looking to invest in a versatile smoker and grill, the Big Green Egg is ideal, reviewers say. Because it's ceramic, however, it is not indestructible. This makes it important to buy from a licensed retailer, so the lifetime warranty from the manufacturer will be in effect.
