    @Boomer - There are many respected folks on this forum, and I do not mean any offence to anyone I do not include here, but I think I have a cost effective business solution for you and your pal Justin. (Although I secretly want this "interesting" thread to continue)
    Contact these folks via PM to get their ship to address and ship four demonstration sets of this product to (listed in alphabetical order):
    @The_Cen-Tex_Smoker - well respected and experienced voice on this forum
    @Nolaegghead - always, well interesting, the "science guy"
    @Little_Steven - Tons of experience and provides the "international" perspective
    @Mickey - Salado guy (you want to demo here anyway) lots of experience on different size eggs

    If this product is as good as you claim, the endorsement of this "crew" will guarantee you business success. Rather than provide discounts to all eggheads, simply get the support of some of the most respected and sell to the rest of us at your regular retail, full of value price. Basic business 101. 

    Good Luck!


    @Boomer sent me a note to call this outfit. Talked to Justin and he is sending several for us to use at Salado EggFest March 16th. Will give all away to Eggers after the Fest. Cool.....

    There is nothing more manly than a wine spritzer!  

    Boomer could you possibly talk to your main friend and totally not business partner Justin and see if he can throw in a case of Mangria with each purchase* (for limited time only) to give us eggers something to occupy ourselves while the mangrates do all the work making our food outstanding?


    Wine spritzer, make mine a Zima!

    Oh Gawd !  If Mickey likes the Mangrate, he'll start hawking them in every thread, like he does his Mini wok, his High Q, and his Mini Egg.   ~X(

    And, he'll thrown in his one good picture of chicken drumsticks to make himself believable.

  • It's probably the one I won at Salado, but you held it back and kept it secret from me.   b-(

    Look what I found. Since I'm not active in the day to day operation of our stores anymore, I don't see what's sitting in the back room and never gets closed out. Ace Hardware warehouses no longer stock these, which equates to slow sales and becomes a canceled item. Our cost on the 2 pack was $36 and change some time ago, they were retailing for $59.99. At least they are made in America! I'll try these out a report back in a few days. Maybe the Maillard reaction is better with these or the vaporizing juices imparting some smoke flavor is what Boomer is experiencing.

    Wow, not one mention of a Ginsu Steak knife! Seems like the perfect pairing for a man grate!
    Thanks, Mike "Live in such a way that if anyone should speak badly of you, no one will believe it."

    @Boomer we will give them a run at the Salado Fest. I will ask @Village Idiot to try one out. It will be the next day to get his report as Gary's station is 9 miles down creek.

    No contest. GrillGrates are better and they make them to fit the Egg. The GrillGrates owner has participated in numerous Eggtoberfests also. Below is a link to a non biased discussion on both products and some of the posters did a blog review of both. The overwhelming winner was the GrillGrates. I love cooking on mine. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120663

    Thanks for the link. It would be interesting to compare the to head-to-head. As of right now, it seems that the grill grate would be the winner for me based on the price and the fact that they offer one of the very few accessories for the medium egg. I can get it in a 15" or even the 13" and put it on my fire box for coal-level searing. Perhaps this isn't needed based on the way the grill grates cook. What is your experience?

    One of the bloggers in that thread I linked did a side by side comparison and he said the GrillGrates won hands down. I love using mine. I primarily use them for burgers and steaks, but used them for other things as well. They are very easy to clean and maintain. I highly recommend them. http://grillgrate.com/

    I think that the people have spoken and an "endorsment" from this forums most "important" people are not going to save the mangrates.

    Thank God, most people (I hope) aren't puppets, but individuals.

    Mickey is the only "important" person on the forum.  If he likes the Mangrate, I'll buy 10 of them.
