Purchased My 1st Egg, Just Before Price Increase!!

edited 7:25AM in EggHead Forum
Hi Everyone!

I'm a new member and this is my 1st post, but I'm fired up over my purchase today of a LBGE! I've been reading through a bunch of threads for the past few weeks, and I'm glad to become part of your community!! I also want to thank y'all for the warning of the price increase tomorrow. I won't be able to enjoy my 1st cook for 3 weeks or so when I get back in town, but I cannot wait!!

Cheers to some great cooking in the future, and a watering mouth while I'm forced to look at the great pics on here! Keep it up!


  • Did not hear about the price much are eggs going up. I'd love to get one for our cabin too.
  • You have more self control than me. I got mine at 4 pm and was firing that baby up at 4:30. I'd carry the egg with me if I just got it. Hotel won't mind, as long as you cook something for the front desk staff.

    Seriously, welcome aboard.
  • I believe the MSRP is going up $100. I don't know how the forum feels about stating purchase prices, but if you PM or email me, I'll tell you what I bought it for. He quoted me last week including the nest in the purchase price, and honored it.

    Michael welcome to our cult.
    Please note just under Mickey is the blog site to the Salado Egghead Gathering in Salado. That is less than 3 hours north on I35. Please come see us (please reg if coming and no charge). You will see lots of Houston area EggHeads.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • Hahaha, well I purchased it on the phone from offshore Africa, so I'm not sure they could have delivered here :)

    Believe me, I wish I could be home to throw some bone-in ribeyes on TONIGHT!

    Welcome Aboard Michael!!

    I'm guessing "Congrats" are in order!!

    We're in Cypress!


    I spent most of my money on good bourbon, and bad women...the rest, I just wasted!!
  • I'm in the Heights... well I guess south Heights or the Washington Corridor. Just south of I-10. Thanks for the welcoming! This is literally my first "real" pit, and by real I mean over $40 (always used family's or friend's), so I'm quite excited to begin my adventures!

    Welcome to the forum Michael. :) Tim
  • Hello, and welcome to the forum, Michael. Too bad you have to wait so long to cook on your egg, but you will not be disappointed, I promise.

    You should go to the Salado Egghead gathering in March - there will be lots of fun Texas eggheads there.
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Congratulations, too bad you have to wait 3 weeks but it will be worth it and give you a chance to decide what to try.
