My husband, an avid BBQ/grill master, was looking to replace our big, bulky gas grill with something more compact and efficient and one that could be better closed off after use, so as not to attract uninvited guests from the animal kingdom to our veranda at night. The result of his search ended with the marvelous discovery of the Big Green Egg at a company in Kemptville, ON called THE HEAT SOURCE on 417 Rideau Street across from the beer store. The "Egg" he acquired, 15" grid diameter, is far more than a BBQ but a grill, a baking oven, a smoker and cook-stove all in one. It's a 2000 year old concept derived from the ancient clay cookers. It's thick ceramic egg-shaped sealed chamber made from space age material, hugs both fuel and food and delivers an entire meal fit for a king. The aroma and texture whether meat, fish, bread, veggies etc. is second to none. The rising crust pizza we enjoyed last night was the finest we ever tasted: Crispy golden on the outside and soft, fluffy and flavourful on the inside. What a marvel! Its one of the best investments we have made, it seals perfectly and takes up very little space. I highly recommend it.
