Blue Big Green Egg? (pic)

edited May 2012 in EggHead Forum

I ran across this auction while browsing on Ebay.  Anybody know the story behind the blue BGE?

  • I smell a hoax...look at the user's profile. No feedback to speak of, no record of selling anything else on Ebay. Just doesn't add up. Ebay has been full of scams lately.

    blue eggs really were made, and were sold in florida from what i remember.
    if i were going to scam on eBay, i don't think i'd start with an obscure version of an expensive obscure grill with a high minimum bid and which is limited to local pick-up only

    I think it is legitimate. Paypal does protect buyer, and local pick up sounds secure. Could probably send seller message for cash at pick up for preferred method of payment.

    Limited item from years back what I've read. I think some of the the pool places that sold eggs thought it would be neat to have a blue one. Not sure why they quit making them or how many were made.
