So I have been using my future father-in-law's BGE for a few years, getting the feel for it and such. My fiance tells me this past week that she thinks we need to buy each other a BGE as our wedding gift to each other....this girl gets better and better!
We take a drive to the local BGE dealer to purchase the egg on Saturday only to be told that they are sold out. The guy says they had been swamped all day and were so busy they did not have time to write down what had been sold, therefore he is 99% sure he does not have one left. He apologizes and starts looking at the show room doing the math in his head. He seemed like he was going to come up with one, but no. This store sold 68 eggs in 3 days and I show up 30 minutes after the last one is gone. A shipment of 72 is "on its way", he said, as he took down my number promising to call me Monday after the dust settled and he figured out the inventory. Until then, I went ahead and bought the plate setter, ceramic grate and a few other things.
I got a phone call this afternoon... I am now the proud owner of my very own large Big Green Egg. The last one in stock. He even knocked off $100. Tomorrow I am gonna do my first cook on my own egg. Any suggestions?
