Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Would you buy a new Mini from someone on Craigslist for $275?

Someone is selling it locally but with the warranty issues and all, I'm not sure if it's worth getting it or not.  It's brand new, never been used.  I don't really need it but a second one would be nice for outdoor stuff.


  • The over-rated warranty has put two new $110 fireboxes in my large at no cost to me, and replaced my spring bands, all with nothing more than a phone call.  You have to decide the warranty's value yourself.

    Tweev - You obviously have never replaced a band. The mini band is $65, small is $80ish, and large is $99. There is no way the new style mini is $210 as a demo. It was like $350 at the retail store in Tucker.

    Wind - I personally would not lose a warranty to save $75. I got my mini used off CL for $100. I agree with Tweev that JB weld will fix the firebox or fire ring but if by some chance one of your eggs cracks you will be SOL. This is my medium and large, both replaced with an email. The warranty on the egg is amazing.
