Getting ready to take my Dad to get a LBGE. I have been trying to convince him for months. I had to come down to FL for work this week and now we are getting to spend a day together. Turbo butt will be started by 11:00 if all goes well.

    Talked to a couple today at Lowe's... Looking at a kamado. Didn't really try to sell the BGE but did talk about the warranty and service they provide. Lowe's model has a 800 number. His wife perked up when I told her I did all the cooking now. I didn't warn her about the butcher and alcohol tab.

  • Nothing makes my day more than telling people about the Egg. My dad first started hearing about mine when I got it in January. Then I took him to Porkopolis Eggfest in Cincinnati. He has done nothing but talk about it since. Now, pork butts are at 165 degrees and wrapped in foil. @henapple I am finding you don't really have to try and sell it. Just tell them about it and it sells itself.

  • All my pics will be from iphone so they won't be good but we are having a blast so far. Poor old man just had to go take a nap. I think spending a grand in a day took it out of him.
