Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

How big is a "boxed" small?

I just "won" and auction for a Small BGE with nest and shelves.  Do you think the "boxed" egg will fit in the trunk or backseat of a Toyota Corolla?

Even if I have to drive the pickup down to Milwaukee, $310 isn't a bad deal.

    I had one I just bought that was assembled. I took it out of the nest and set it in the folded down rear seat of a chevrolet pu. I would guess it would be no prob. Worst case take the parts out of the box and wrap with blankets.

    Yes it will. I sell Corollas and had a small. No problem.

    Ha Iwrehm, I won a small also, you can not beat the price. I purchased a large last year the same way.
    Fat is tasty, everything else is filler.

    Are these auctions? What type? I never see any smalls on eBay.

    It was a local radio thing called "Bid on Milwaukee", an Ace Hardware had a couple units for sale.

    I was not going to bid, they had 1 large and 3 smalls.  About 45 minutes before the auction ended, there was 1 small with no bid, (minimum bit $310).  So I signed up and with about 15 minutes left I dropped a bit of 350 in, and I was the only bider with tax $329 for a small, nest, and side tables. 

    The large went for about 580 with nest and side tables.

     

    I just couldn't pass it up.  They run this auction 1 or 2 times a year and Elliot's ACE Hardware always seems to pony up a few BGE's for the masses.
