XL base and dome. What to do...

Through work I got an XL base and dome. Both are in fine shape, but have none of the accessories or insides. Pricing out that stuff comes to almost the cost of a new XL egg, besides I already have one. So what to do? Not much interest on Craigslist, as the cost issue I mentioned. I could make a very expensive planter out of it, but that seems a waste.

I had an idea about using some masonary sealer on the insides, putting on a band, and making a really cool ice chest.

    Who is telling you the insides cost as much as a new egg?

    You need a new firebox, fire ring and firegrate? Maybe the cook grate too.
  • Where are you located? I think it would be worth it to get a box, ring and bands. The XL runs close to $1000. new. The box ring and bands will not cost near that much.
  • I work for a BGE dealer part time. The cost of a new fire ring, fire box, charcoal grate, cooking grate, band, damper top, cast iron damper, thermometer, and gasket is,with shipping, retail cost, almost the price of a new XL. And no employee discount for me. And I really don't need another XL, would be nice, but I am lucky my wife only raised a little fit when I bought the XL (for $300 off retail, plus all the accessories we had in the store). And to try and sell it will be difficult as someone else will have to pay the same as me for the parts, plus what I would want for the base and dome. I may just save them in case I ever have an accident I have some free replacements.

    just save them. ya never know when something knuckleheadish will happen with your current xl.....not that I'm speaking from experience or anything......dang it. t ACGP, Inc.
  • Not a bad Idea either or just build it over time. Your dealer won't get the parts with a regular BGE order to avoid shipping? :huh:
  • Where do you live?
