Must be an inside joke...

OK, I've read the threads, see it mentioned in countless other threads, and I don't get it...

I don't want this to turn into another "Mangrates" thread, but what the heck is everyone talking about?  I understand what the PRODUCT is, but there seems to be some inside joke that I am missing...

    This is about the story (not the product so much).This is where a lot of us have way to  much time on our hands and nothing cooking on any of the Eggs at the moment.

    Just 90% fun and 5% product and 74% goofy.

    That is my "mangrate" on it anyway :-?

    I think your 'product' percentage is a little too high.

    I believe this is the discussion that started it all:


    It started out innocent enough...someone just asked if anyone used them, but then it spiraled into a full-fledged infomercial about mangrates.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    See, there's been so much tongue-in-cheek crap about this product, I don't even know if you're serious or not!

    I think it is safe to say the only serious posts on mangrates came from the guy or gal who originally posted about them.

  • @ptmurphy, it seems you have received some helpful and not so helpful thoughts. Let me try to assist as well. I have served in the US Army for over 12 years. I can say there is technology being used by the military that is rarely seen in the civilian sector. Every once in a while, however, an amazing product is released for civilian use. The Mangrates is one of those products. Although once called the M571G Tactical HOORAH, they have declassified it for public use. I am glad to see this product on the market today but I will warn you now, it will make you wanna go slap yo daddy when those burgers come off the BGE!!! I hope this helps.

    If its not memorable, its not worth doing.

    At my age, I have to rely on a little blue pill to get my mangrate to work at all.

    What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, although I heard from a highly reputable source that Mangrates were involved. That's all the information I 'm going to give. ;)

    You are right, CC.  I was there when they first beta tested a Mangrate on a Big Green Egg.  Some minor adjustments needed to be made.


    Huh - like MAKE IT ROUND!

    Mangrates are not a joke... Just don't do what I did and hug them while they are still hot!
