New discussion of Mini-Max

jaydub58jaydub58 Posts: 2,090
I called my local dealer today about if the mini-max was really going to be a fact or not..  The gal I spoke to had no idea of what I was asking about.
She took my phone number so she could call her distributor and let me know what she found out.
About 10 minutes later, she's back on the phone to me; her dist. says it is set to be released in "early October".

They have my name !!!!.

    I called yesterday and they said "end of August, first of September". 

    Needless to say, I think everyone is in agreement that it will arrive "sometime in the fall".

    Jaydub I have my name on the first one also but have 90% changed my mind. I have all the toys for my Mini and it works really well for me with all the stuff.

    i am not giving up hope for a late august delivery but I won't be surprised if it takes until the fall.  I will reevaluate if we get into mid October and crickets are still chirping.


    BGE's marketing dept really needs to be able to get the BGE production department to communicate with them BEFORE they show a new product to the market at an event

    Its going to be more than $450. I bet closer to $550 since it is coming with a stand supposedly.

    NPHuskerFl just got his for 400 with a bit of discount before getting credit for his nest and mates. I'd put money on 450.

    I would think that even with the baby legs in the pics, it would have to stay below the retail of the small (by itself) which is currently $559.  Again, these are retail numbers and who pays retail?!?!

    It is crazy that the MiniMax is on the advertising literature they gave me to display, but sure isn't on the price list!!!

    @Jeremiah‌ No I wish. I am "paid in full" for the Max and first on their list. But, I'm no different»»» waiting on delivery to my dealer.

    The mini with nest retails at like $430 right? So the mini max is going to be only $20 more? I doubt it but we'll see.

    Just call your dealer and tell him you want one. He can call his bge rep and hook you up. And don't let them bone ya 2600.00 is what he cost. Now they do make a 20 foot tall one for about 4000.00 but that is like really weird wanting a 20 foot Mr egghead.

    Trust me the day I get it it's getting fired up. Hell I might light it in the parking lot on my tailgate in the spirit of things. I wanted (want) so bad I made sure I paid early. That way if they are in limited supply I'm good to go. :-)

    Yes love my KJ. If what others are saying is true about a $450 price range I may still check out a mini max but really happy I got the Jr.

    after the screen issue was resolved, i am quite happy with mine. It stays at firehouse mostly and I cook a butt a week on it and spatch birds....pretty much all the meals i eat come from it at work

    Are you still using the original gasket? Does the stock grate make into a raised direct grate?
  • NPHuskerFLNPHuskerFL Posts: 15,938
    Spoke directly to the MotherShip today. It will be soon. Very soon.

    @Dobie‌ The gentleman in the customer service dept Dwayne explained he has cooked on the Max and said getting to 700℉ is effortless. This will be the first egg that will ship as a self-contained unit. Ie all the ceramics and even the nest in one pkg. Pretty cool. I'm super stoked to get this one. B-)

    I spoke to the mothership a day or 2 ago and they said 6 weeks. I may cruise down there and ask Terry face to face. @dihtn‌ the KJ comes with a triangle shaped device that raises the grate to gasket level. It also comes with a pizza stone that slides into the triangle shaped thing to go indirect as well as a stand with handles.

    I called my hometown dealer today and they didn't know what it even was. They said they would do some checking.
