I'm a new sales person for the BGE at Stoves n Suff in PA.[p] Please give me your best selling feature for the BGE. What made you buy the BGE!!! in one sentence please.[p] Thank You for the help

    Bob, just keep reading this forum. Virtually every post tells why someone thinks the BGE is the most wonderful outdoor cooker ever conceived. Unfortunately, most of us cannot tell you why we spent this much money on a cooker. It's just that having spent it, we now realize what a good buy it is and wonder why we didn't do it years ago. In a sentence I have have never had an outdoor cooker that will allow me the flecxibility of temperature control that the BGE has. Also, I have never found a cooketr that will allow me to cook meat as well done and still be moist.

    Food cooked on the Egg is superior to any other method.

    Bob,[p]ONE - Flexibility is the biggest selling point to me. I can slow smoke a brisket at 200 degrees for 20 hours or I can sear a nice steak at 700 degrees for a couple of minutes. Very versatile.[p]TWO - All weather cooker. It cooks the same in 90 degree summer days or 0 degree winter nights. I've smoked a pork butt overnight with temps dipping below zero and the egg maintained a constant 220 degree temperature without skipping a beat.[p]THREE - Quality of food that you can cook on it. Moist, tender, wonderful. It does not dry out the meat like other grills have a tendency to do.[p]Good luck, you will get a LOT of great sales pitches here.[p]Have your customers take a look at this forum also. Put a PC on the salesfloor and have it logged into this website and let them see for themselves what people are saying about it.[p]Troy

    It is not your father’s Charcoal Grill.[p]Sorry, I just had to use the old Oldsmobile slogan. Most people have bad experience with charcoal, so they just assume that lump is the same way. [p]Also, the baking qualities of the BGE are just not possible on a gas grill.[p]Hope this helps,

  • Trout BumTrout Bum Posts: 343
    What a GREAT idea! I'm going to mention it to my dealer and see if he'll put a PC on the floor.

    Bob,[p]It's a complete package.[p]I agree with the Wise One....well worth the investment.[p]

    Word of mouth made me buy the BGE. This forum, the eggs versatility, ease of use, and the massive improvement in the quality of the meal is why I bought a second.[p]Sorry. Two sentences.[p]Good luck with your sales.

    Bob,[p]The best testimonial I can think of is the sheer number of multiple Egg owners. I am just one of many many on this forum. Invite your prospects to email any one of us.[p]K~G

    Bob,[p] One of the most forgiving cookers, you will ever have the pleasure to work with.. [p] Earl
  • BamabobBamabob Posts: 246
    Taste---Fun! Is that one or two sentences?:-) Bob

  • Char-WoodyChar-Woody Posts: 2,642
    Answer to the first question, it was the actual testimonial pages.
    Second question, it was the quality of the ceramic's, the integrity of the company, and the company service to its customers.
    Hard to do that in one sentence!

    This forum, the versitility of the egg, and the need to make great BBQ.

  • MACMAC Posts: 442
    You can cook high, you can cook low,
    You can cook in Rain or in the snow.
    It's all ceramic and rusting never,
    The Big Green Egg will last for ever.
    You don't even have to know how to cook,
    For those answers to the forum you'll look.
    You purchase an EGG and you'll agree,
    We are all just a BGE FAMILY[p]

    It's cute.
    All the other superlatives have been said, and all are true.

    The best thing about owning one is the confused looks on people's faces when you tell them you own a Big Green Egg. :-)
  • Tim MTim M Posts: 2,410
    Bob,[p]You are one of the first sales people to show up here - good for you. The stores around here that sell the Eggs are full of salesman who have no idea what it does. Glad you asked and you will catch on if you hang around a little. The Egg does the best job on ribs! Cook some some saturday morning - thats how I bought mine.[p]BTW, you need to pick another name - BOB is taken and the computr thinks its that BOB posting.[p]Tim

    “But this goes to 11”[p]sorry, just got out of a long meeting.

  • PainterPainter Posts: 464
    Bob, You are reading them now. Smart salesman.

  • JimEJimE Posts: 158
    The best thing about the egg to me is its unbelievable ability to hold a consistent temperature for very long cooking periods. Build your fire, get it to 225, scatter some wood about so some will burn now and some later, put on some butts at 8PM, go to bed, get up at 8AM and smile happily when the thermometer still says 225 and smoke is still enveloping that luscious doesn't get much better (or easier) than that. One more thing.....the look on peoples faces when you feed them what you cooked!

    How about this. I have a large bge in a table with
    all the bells and whistles. I just left the Atlanta
    store with my new MINI and felt like a kid at Christmas.
    I think that pretty well sums it up for me.[p]Chuck

    Bob,[p]You want a one liner?! Try this on for size.[p]You probably couldn't cook on one of these things anyway.[p]If you are a real salesman you'll figgure that out quick![p]Carey

  • SippiSippi Posts: 83
    Fascinating versatile year round hobby.

  • Bob,[p]Here's one--Damned fine grub![p]VFucci

  • Bob,
    I dont EVEN HAVE ONE and I want ONE!!![p] sheegh

  • Bob,[p]Your customers could buy one of those outdoor ovens....I mean gas grills....or they could enjoy food that is more easily cooked, more moist, more flavorful, more different, and more fun, than food cooked or bought anywhere else, AND with you, BGE Company, and this forum, your customers cannot buy a grill with better customer support available for any other outdoor oven...I mean gas grill.[p]Regards,
