been an egg owner for 9 years now and have been on this forum for just as long.
We have had some bad luck with our beloved egg. My fiance' fired up the egg a
few weeks ago before I got home from work so it would be ready to cook a
spatch-cocked chicken with some Dizzy Dust rub....yummo! Six minutes later the
garage was on fire with 30ft flames. The egg cart was 3 feet from garage entrance.My hand built 911 was in there along with
a med egg, motorcycle and brand new appliances to name a few things that were
to go to a new house we just built. Everything I have saved for the last 30yrs
was in there ready to move to the new house and now it is gone. Thank the lord
no one was injured. My insurance does not cover vehicles and they were all
uninsured at the time because the garage was so full of stuff to move I could
not drive them. My new Audi A3 was parked outside the garage with my Seadoo and
both are a total loss.The A3 had full coverage thank goodness. I could see smoke from the freeway driving home from
work and my heart sunk knowing it was in the direction of my house. Driving
closer I saw 30 people standing in front of my neighbors house and I could see
60ft flames coming from my garage.The only good thing is that Connie and my dog
were there and safe. I have cooked overnight hundreds of times with out issues. I now would never use any Egg or grill near anything flammable unattended ever again.Neighbors on each side have substantial damage along with the back of my house.My insurance say's they will not par for neighbors because I did not light the Egg, my fiance' did... :(
the lessons I have learned are;
let your fiance lite the Egg....(just teasing)
the Egg is just getting going make sure it is attended.
all your vehicles even if they are being stored.
