ceramic/kamado cookers - different makes pros/cons

I know there have been several discussions on the BGE, kamado and other ceramic cookers before, but i'm wondering if anyone has a strong opinion on one brand over another and why.

i know of primo, kamado, big green egg, and big dome (is that the right name?). I know BGE is the best seller, but that doesn't make it the best unit. Are these the best? Am i missing any options?

What brands do you or, more importantly, don't you recommend , and why?

I live in an apartment in NYC - a five story walkup apartment with a 13' x 9' balcony space.. so if that influences your opinion let me know.

many thanks

  1. those who promote Kamodo say that they are priced better than BGE, and that they came first

    as far as model, I think size is the main determinant-just make sure you get one that's big enough, which you may have to balance with the size/sturdiness of your balcony

      Before recommending Kamodo, please read the other thread involving this subject, paying special attention to professor salts post.
