Florida Shopping Experience for BGE

I would like to relay a shopping experience I recently had while shopping for BGE(s). After a lot of digging in the forum I found several references to a store in Tampa so I thought I would check them out since there was nothing reasonable in the Sebastian FL area.
After several e-mails I drove over to Tampa to purchase my egg(s).
In a word the store and staff are fantastic!!! I dealt with Bob Estes, one of the co-owners. No pressure, no rush, very knowledgeable about the product. A pleasure to work with. They know their eggs. My intentions were to purchase 2 eggs, a large and small.(one for company and large cooks and the small for every day use for 1 or 2 people.) Bob initially thought the second egg might be overkill, but I explained my rationale and also based my decision on a lot of input from folks on the forum as well as my nephew (a devout foodie and egger and the reason I started this fantastic journey<smile>)
So now I am the proud owner of two eggs. My first spatchcock chicken using the revised Naked Whiz method (375 & no flip) is about to come off of the small egg. I will setup the large when I finish my table to hold the pair.
Sorry for a long post, but I get excited talking about the egg.
If you are in the market for an egg (or two!) and live in central Florida, check out The outdoor Kitchen Store in Tampa. You won't be disappointed. (I have no affiliation with the store...just a happy customer)[p]Smokey Bob
