If you were going to buy one of these grills, what would you choose and why?

I don’t have a BGE,  but I have Bubba Keg which I rarely use. I haven’t mastered keeping the temps low in the keg, so when I’m bbqing, I rely on my WSM.

For grilling and high temp, the Bubba Keg can’t be beat. It’s also unbreakable in comparison to the egg and has a great trailer hitch for portability.

I recently decided to go with the Bubba Keg over a BGE for the reasons listed above (portability and durability).  Price was also a factor, about the only downside is the lack of accessories, especially a plate setter/diffuser.  Low and slow is a challenge; there is a pretty steep learning curve at low temps.  I also will continue to rely on my WSM for long cooks, but the BKCG is quickly replacing my kettles for grilling and high temp cooks (steak, pizza, and bread).

FYI - The folks at Bubba Keg have a diffuser shipping either now, or very soon. I hear they will also have a cover available soon.

I can’t speak directly to the Bubba keg although I have heard the side tables will melt .

You can’t beat the BGE for durability, control or versatility. I have had mine for 5+ years and it is as good as new. I have not even had to replace the felt ring. i use it several times a week. It also has a lifetime warranty. Does the Bubba keg? you can also trade in your BGE for a larger size and get credit for the one you turn in. it is expensive upfront, but with the warranty, durability and trade in program, it turns out to be inexpensive.  You may also be able to get a demo Egg that has been only used once or twice from your distributor at a reduced price.

I can easily get a stable fire around 200 degrees. of course, you are going to have to play with your BGE to figure out just where to set the daisy wheel and lower vent, but once you are familiar with your unit, you can smoke at 200 or sear at 700

I wouldn’t even consider getting one of the many BGE imitators that are popping up

I have both a BGE and a Bubba Keg, they are both excellent products, though the Big steel keg is a better value

The keg is significantly more durable than the egg, its made of thick double walled steel with oven insulation in between, there have been no reports of the side tables melting. It comes with a 5 year warranty and has no parts designed to wear out like the felt gasket (it uses a soft metal mesh sealer like your oven), The BGE is fragile and is prone to cracking.

Control wise both grills are near identical, its just as easy to dial in a temperature on both grills using near identical controls.

The point about upgrading is moot, the Bubba Keg comes in only one size, which is the same size as the large Big Green Egg, incidentally all BGE accessories such as pizza stones or heat shields also fit in the Bubba Keg

Lastly the Bubba keg comes with everything you need, stand, cleaning tools, accessories in one package for $599, the same size grill from Big Green Egg costs $749 and doesnt include the stand ($125) or side tables ($60)

As for the plate setter. I made one that works great. I bought a Weber Charcoal Grate from Home Depot. It’s for Weber’s 18.5 grill but the charcoal grate is 13.5. About $9. Also from Home Depot I bought a 3’ x 1” x 1/8” stick of flat steel. About $5. You only need 18”.  I cut three 6” pieces from the flat steel and bent them 1” from the ends. I then had a friend weld the flat steel to the charcoal grate. Then I bent and tweeked the still hangers to fit the lip inside my Bubba Keg. When inserted into the keg the grate hangs down 5”. This depth looks good to me. It could set at any depth depending on how long you cut your flat steel. The kegs cooking grid sets down over the hangers. Up only 1/8”.  Now you can use whatever kind of pan you want. Drip pan, water pan, or just something to defuse the heat like tin foil.

5 Features of a good Legal Website  
 
The ABA reports that buying a website will help you improve your practice. However, they qualify that this website must be search engine-optimized for it to be a good investment. Search engines optimized website is but one that is easily located on the internet by prospects. An internet site without SEO will go unnoticed by most web traffic, and might as well not exist. So, the very first feature of an effective legal website is that it must be search engine optimized. SEO is primarily achieved because of your website developer. It includes properly adding urls, meta tags, and descriptions.2.  The second feature is it should be client-centric. Prospects considering your services are looking for your specialty (practice areas) and client testimonials. Everyone is inherently self-interested, so you need to immediately communicate how you can help them. If you need to communicate info on yourself, it is best to put a spin into it. The correct way to brag with regards to you, for example is to say, “Are you frustrated with all the rules and regulations imposed with your small business? Following federal and state employer guidelines could be almost impossible with limited resources. Fortunately, the Smith Law practice can make compliance easier.” Notice that the content was mostly about the prospect, not the lawyer.3.  An effective attorney website creates a good impression with industry-specific visual design. Individuals have certain expectations about how lawyers should present themselves. This presentation also includes the look of your website. While websites beautifully made with a rainbow of colours and flashy animation might be stimulating, they do not supply the impression of professionalism. It is advisable to use graphics that won’t overpower your written copy. The graphics should complement the copy, making sure that website visitors can easily find helpful information and phone numbers.4.  The internet renders it possible for individuals educate themselves. Make use of this fact to your advantage. Help people satisfy their dependence on information by educating them through your website. You can post articles, resources, or a blog. Prospects can become accustomed to visiting your blog to get information, and definately will begin to see you just as one authority figure. Eventually they may contact you for legal help. Fundamentally that an educative site converts visitors into clients.5.  Finally, a powerful legal website can be easily updated. You might need to feature an 800 number, make positive changes to contact information, or post a whole new article on your website. These are changes that you should cover the cost of yourself, without experiencing your website developer. Updating your site on a regular basis is a good supply of a better search ranking. Google, along with search engines, look favorably upon fresh content.
