Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise.

imageimageJust scored a medium egg on craigslist for $325! Going to have to replace a few nuts that have rust and I need a acquire a spring that is missing but otherwise it's in decent shape! Came with BGE electric starter, side tables, and nest. Gasket is fried but no cracks in firebox/ring or egg. Two very small enamel chips just below the handle. Any ideas on fixes? Is the mothership's website the best place to order replacement parts? I mainly want to use this as a camping/traveling rig. Anyone in the savannah area wanna trade me their small? Opinions on medium vs. small to go camping/traveling? I will say this was relatively easy to get in and out of the car compared to the large. Thanks ahead. I am pumped!

    I may look at that. I check Columbia Craigslist about once a week for deals on Yeti coolers and BGE Two companies who I am a big fan of their products.

    I am chartreuse with envy. If you're going to replace a couple of nuts and bolts might as well just order a complete hardware kit and do it all while you're in there.

  • Craigslist Nashville has something listed as a Big Green Egg but is NOT. For the price, it looks worth taking a shot at though!

    Based on handle locatio and no vent in front I would say it is not an BGE but may need to look at I realize to make sure not modified in some weird way

    BGE or not, if it isn't cracked it's worth the money. I'd offer $250 and get it home as quick as I could.

  • A little bit of researching pictures, this MIGHT be an Imperial Komado. Apparently earthenware.

  • Anyone know the thread size for the hardware offhand??

  • What a blast from the past. That is a BGE they sold here in Atlanta at a place called "The Pachinko House" before it became the BGE World HQ. I bought one just like it in 1990. It was terra cotta and no where near as capable as the porcelain units. When I traded it in a decade ago, the guy said "wow, we should send this to the Smithsonian." =D>
