$900 for a grill is way more than I'm willing to spend. Even if I were hot for a ceramic shell grill, a Kamado is a better deal than an Egg.
I bought a 3 burner Charbroil T-36D (still waiting for it to come in off backorder from NFM), own a Weber Smokey Mountain and I'm planning on getting a Weber Performer. All three of those together still cost less than an XL BGE. All of those together probably weigh less, too.
Don't forget about the $700 accessory table either!
