    He probably is still trying to figure out how to brew beer with it. LOL
  • 7 years medium, 1 year XL.
    Although I really didn't get serious until about 2006. I was in an apt until then and it was considered a fire hazard on the balcony. That didn't stop me, but did slow me down some. :angry:

    Maybe there should be a special get together of the "Old Guys and Gals)" at the fests! Sort of a tribute thing.

    My dealer offered to give me the new spring hinge - nice guy. I'll stick with the oldie for now.
  • I might as well chime in too. I have thoroughly enjoyed my egg for close to five years.

    I great answer. I think I got my large in 2002 so around 7 for my first.

    Now I don't have a clue about how many beers. :woohoo:

  • Good idea for FLA,

    They should give us the ground floor rooms too.

    You got that right!
  • I think the egg was just coming out all over the country when I bought mine. I saw it at the Home Show at the Tampa Convention Center. People were standing around talking about it, but they didn't have it lit because it was inside the convention center. I went to the Egg store the next day and bought one, never having tasted any food cooked on it. They even gave me the home show 10% discount -

    I still have the receipt:


    And also have the brochure from that time - the nest was low to the ground - Note that it is called the All New Ceramic Big Green Egg:



    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!
  • Faith,

    You bought it the year you graduated from high school?

  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I cooked day one. Can't remember what.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I agree. I gained weight and made a lot of friends. I expected the cooking would be fun, but didn't think eggfests and friends came with the egg.

    Did you bring one back from overseas?
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I think the winner gets your cornbread recipe
