Let’s take a look at some of the grills which Green Egg shares their market space with in this article. I’m not even saying these cookers are better than the EGG but it can be interesting to see what else is out there.

One new player on the scene of the Green Egg Grill competitors is called the Bubba Keg. This thing definitely looks like it was designed to directly infringe on the success of our favorite, the Big Green Egg. It is shaped like, guess what, an egg. And it is being marketed in a wham-bam type way. I think maybe they’re going for the younger crowd judging from some of their ad campaigns.

The Bubba Keg is about thirty pounds lighter than the Green Egg Grill. Well I’ll have to give them some admiration for that one. All things equal, lighter is usually better. (As long as it doesn’t blow over in the wind.) They are obviously marketing to a cockier male: Their website gloats: “Become a legend in your own backyard.” I’m laughing out loud.

Bubba Keg is a convection grill. For some reason the company seems to be dually in the business of mugs and thermoses on the one hand, and grills on the other!? I don’t quite get that. Anyway, it’ll cost you something on the order of $600 to get one of these cookers. Can this really be considered one of the top Green Egg Grill competitors? Not really: it uses steel walls versus Green Egg’s ceramic, so it sounds like it’s just not quite as high quality and won’t give the outstanding results we’re used to with the EGG.

How about the Weber Kettle? This one should be a little more familiar to most readers. Although it’s really a smoking grill, it excels in some categories where maybe Green Egg Grill doesn’t. For instance, it is very mobile or portable, easy to move around and light-weight.

A Weber, and really all other grills, cannot get to the amazingly high temperatures that Green Egg Grill competitors would like to get to if they really want to compete with the king of smoker outdoor barbequing, etc. Maybe that is not what they’re trying to do. I hope not because they don’t stand a chance.

Some people do like other grills because of the previously noted mobility of them. They also claim they don’t have enough cooking space on the EGG but I don’t know about that one. Maybe if they’re on a diet, or focusing on small portions of healthy organic foods then the other grills will be OK.

As you can see, there are a couple pseudo Green Egg Hill competitors out there, but none of them are really challenging the space that the king began to carve out for himself back in the 1970’s. Put simply, they are inferior products when it comes to cooking at super-high temperatures and doing things that all the rest of the neighbors only wish they could do.
