  • luis,[p]Let's see. I won mine at Eggoberfest '06. How do I start that lump coal again????[p]Kim
  • luis,
    Have ours for about 3.5 years. Was actually thinking of purchasing a K, when a very gracious and generous client sent over large BGG. We never looked back. Besides, dropping two platesetters and one ceramic top nothing has ever broken.
    We used to cook a lot of steaks, so we have gone thru a few gaskets.
    We live in Miami Beach and have a little rust on one bolt.
    We love it.

  • I picked up my first egg (komado)from Ed Fisher at Pachinko House at the corner of of Dresdon and Clairmont Rd, Atlanta GA, in 1978. I was only 18 and had no idea what a great cooker this was. It is still a great product.

  • luis,
    Geez, it sure doesn't seem that long ago...it seems like yesterday...in the backyard fryin' up simple burgers and dogs on a rusty ol gasser, sippin' on a wobbly pop. Then...BAM, I'm blinded by a bright green light beamin' down from heaven, and loud voice says to me "Young Parrothead...Come to the green side...throw away those burnt discs and dry chicken...come EGGsperience some real eats!!!" I picked myself up off the ground thinking I had consumed too many wobblies, and it was my buddy backing his truck into back yard to show me his latest purchase.
    Naw...really it's been 5 wonderful years with my large and 3 with my mini(which was a birthday present from my wife...can you believe it!!)
    And no egg would be complete without some customized Lawnranger tools!![p]Wobbly pops to ya!![p]Chris

    Wobbly Pops to ya, Chris

    JimboBQ,
    I've never had that problem guess I'm lucky. OTOH when I first bought it plus a couple extra bags of balls I thought some had a little rust on them so I soaked them all overnight in Naval Jelly. Well, guess what? Those shiny chrome like balls lost every bit of shine so mine aren't purdy anymore at all!!!

  • I've had mine less than 24 hrs. I have not had a chance to cook on it yet, but hopefully soon. Finishing up the home for it, so I should be unpacking it soon and putting it in the table. I'm excited about trying it out.
