Picked up my Mini Egg on Saturday, I have to say posters like Mickey and others showing creative ways to use the mini sold me on giving it a try. I must say I was pretty suprised that the dealers I spoke with didnt understand why I wanted a mini as my first egg and really undersold the product. I mentioned the forum and how people were using them creative ways. Anyway I was hoping I would get the latest new version and it appears I did all except for the grid. I got the 9.5" stainless grid.
I want to thank Mickey for taking my call as I was trying to decipher if I had the latest version and what I was missing. So after confusing my dealer in asking for 10" grid I called into Greenegg today and they said they have no 10" grids in stock and it will be a while if they ever do again. I was told the porcelain is 9 3/4" of an inch and he could help me with that as its a better fit that the stainless version anyway.
So i guess my question is what am I to do if I do in fact want a woo. Are older woo's available that would work with the older grids? Do both the older grids work with the older woo? Mickey I may need to track down the dealer you mentioned having a few available, but the customer rep I spoke with said have him lay a tape to the grid because he does not think they are out there.
I have not used the egg yet just put it together, only reason I want one is to do all the cooking methods (wok, pizza, cast iron pan). The mini should be adequate for my family which is wife and 2 very little ones. My other smoker is a terracotta pot smoker i made last year which serves me just fine (butts, ribs, jerky,pastrami) so i didnt want another big grill with that and a weber performer.
