Just brought home a new mini green egg and upacked the box and noticed
that there is no grate for the firebox. Is this normal or am I missing the grate.

    Butcher,[p]It should have one and if it came from Atlanta HQ, you may have to destroy then entire box. They get really creative with the foam spray when boxing them little guys up.[p]Z

    Butcher,[p]That is good news about the grate. Just another heads up, if you are also looking for the feet for the mini. This may not be true now, but was about a year ago. The mini did not come with feet when I got mine. I didn't know that at the time, so I destroyed the packing looking for them as well. [p]Z

  • Butcher,[p]I have a Large BGE. Thinking about either a small or a mini. How much did you pay for a mini? And why did you buy a mini rather than a small? [p]Your advice would be appreciated.[p]Anthony

    Zip,I also discovered that it didn't come with feet but I've got the ones that came with my large BGE and I just figured I could use those. I also have a good friend that is a extremely talented welder that says he can make me a nice nest for it with no problem.Butcher[p]

    Anthony Up North,I paid $129 for the mini, I bought the mini for traveling, we have a 31' travel trailer and do most of our cooking outside. Once I got the mini home and really started looking at it I believe I am going to have to end up getting a small because I think I am going to need more grate surface.[p]
