    Glad you like your kamado, but I haven't found a single kamado-style smoker/bbq that has had the fit, finish, or beefy build as the BGE. Wall thickness of the BGE is twice that of the Chargriller, which is one of the reasons I went with the big mama jamma. Believe me, I looked long and hard at other BGE-style units...

    My XL BGE is the best thing I've ever cooked on, bar none.

    the powdercoating can wait.
    Have you thought of some gasket material to seal things up tight? Felt with some food-safe adhesive (though it might not stick to metal as it does to my ceramic grill)?

Then you've got the "nest" (stand)($200), plate setter (stone that intercepts the direct heat of the coals, preventing burning)($100). And if you're going to go that far, you'll want to spend the extra couple hundred on the large. It's a lifetime investment and it's totally worth it in my opinion. I do a lot of cooking, and I've only turned my oven on once since I've owned it.
    Basically, what he's saying, is that the BGE is like Barbie for men. Sure...buy the doll...but you'll wanna buy the shoes and the dresses and the hats and the dream houses and the Corvettes. THAT is where the money is made: accessories.

    I will say that normally I'm very leery about that sort of way of doing things. But I have not had one POS accessory from BGE. All have been top-notch quality. And when I have had a problem (i.e. with a missing set of hardware or a snuffer lid I broke myself), they've had the replacements in my hands within two days. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE goes a LONG way with me.

    it might not, and with the heat on the surface, the adhesives can, and will, fail.

    just looked up heat-resistent materials on the interwebs. silicone? rubber? seems the max temps it can withstand is 700F. hmmm. I don't see a reason to bring my smoker up that high or over.

    I think the flat bars will do the job just fine. it is just the science of plugging the holes the right way.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    There's adhesives that'll do high temps. The BGE uses something that will withstand over 700 degrees AND is food-safe, but I'm not sure what.

    I don't believe that stuff is food-safe. Isn't that for automotive engines?

    BGE is definitely the luxury model, but if your looking for a nice cheaper substitute, WSM is very competitive at much less dinero...
