I just so happen to be in the market for an XL, so I absolutely couldn't pass this up. The poor guy owned the XL for a little over a year. I of course wanted to know what had happened to the BGE. I got nauseous as he described the demise the massive ceramic cooker. So this poor fellow was PUSHING (not pulling) the Egg into his shed in preparation for a storm. As he pushed it up a wood ramp, it tipped over and cracked. I asked if I could see the egg in its current condition, and he told me broke it with a sledge hammer so it would fit in his trash can. At this point I think I threw-up in my mouth. I didn't have the heart to tell him the cracked half could be purchased separately from the mother ship. He's clearly not a forum member. I paid him and ran away like I stole something.
