  • Ok, quick update: we have spoken to several folks that have used WGC purchased within the last year. All were pleased with the quality and service, same as on our previous group orders from a few years ago. I am also purchasing a few sample bags fro…
  • Eggcelsior said: There was a dust-up last summer in regards to a WG group buy or local availability issue after the split with Ace hardware. @caliking can provide details but I don't know if the thread still exists. Right now it's more of a r…
  • I don't know anything about possible recent or past problems at WGC but we've never had a single problem or complaint with their lump or our numerous group buys, and there are numerous WGC dealers in my state which are still being serviced just fine…
  • Focker said: Very nice of you to do this.Good to see you posting.How is the golden egg finish currently holding up?  Contemplating a paint job for my large egg.  What product did you use, header paint? Howdy.The golden egg finish has ind…
  • Don't know if this helps or not but Harpeth True Value in Franklin carries Weekend Warrior. That's where I get mine. Thanks. I know there are a few local places which sell it, but their cost is much higher (sometimes double) and they don't stock th…
  • Happy to do it. We are already up to 3 pallets so far, and we still have more than 30 people in the group which should be responding later this week. Hope we get enough to break our record again!
  • WileE, no you don't have to register.  There is no legal requirement to reqister with a manufacturer to obtain warranty service.  You only need proof of purchase, i.e., a receipt.  I doubt BGE is going to start weasiling out of most warranty claims.…
  • I just read the warranty page posted on their website. My take was that the coverage has been significantly reduced to < lifetime for various parts which are almost certain to fail sooner and are likely to fail more than once over long periods of…
  • Has it been 4 years already? Wow. I have been away from this forum for a long while, mostly for other hobbies and some big life events, but I still love and use my eggs. The gold egg is still going strong, the painted finish looks just like the day …
  • I spent many, many hours making comments, suggestions, posts, and offering to help replace the old fourm. I even created a free prototype in phpBB in just a few hours, to show them how quick and easy it could be, and how nice it could look. I also s…
  • I have used various methods over the years.I like the convenience and cleanliness of a shopvac, and I used it in my first year or so, but my egg is located in a table which sits in my carport all the time. I don't want to keep a shopvac outside by t…
  • Have been away from the forum for a while, busy with work and other urgent things. Came back tonight to check a few posts and was initially excited to see the splash page announcing the new and improved forum. There were many things I disliked about…
  • Good meeting you today Tim. Glad I was able to deliver your lump to save you a trip. We ran out of time in Bowling Green so will have to try the Amish Market another day. That rub you gave me was delicious. I sampled some raw while waiting on the Mr…
  • Our annual Nashville area group buy has just been completed. We now have almost 40 eggers in our group from all over Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama. Nearly 30 of them ordered this time around and we got 6 full pallets, 360 bags, 7,920 lbs. of W…

  • Update: We now have more than 30 people participating in this group buy! Delivery will be to a warehouse in Nashville but many people are pitching in to split up and transport the bags as far as Kentucky, Alabama, and East Tennnessee. If you a…
  • Update: I have only received replies from about half of our group so far and we are already up to 3 full pallets on the Wicked Good Charcoal order. It seems likely that we will hit 5 pallets this time around so the pricing should be better than e…
  • Sent you some info via email Steve. Contact me directly for any questions or to join our group. We have more than 2 dozen now from 3 states and we welcome everyone!
  • Good to hear from you Steve. I also still use the syringe and alcohol method. Quick, cheap, and fast. I especially like the FAST part during these cold winter months... no more huddling around the egg nursing it with a torch or waiting for napkins t…
  • So glad to hear that you got the kits ok and that they are working well. I sent out 50 kits and have heard back from about 20 people so far that have tried it and reported success. I think the other 30 people are too busy grilling to report back... …
  • Glad to hear it and happy to help my fellow forum members. A forum is worthless without contributions from everyone and I have learned a lot from all the great posts, photos, links, reviews, and recipes on this site. So it was no big deal for me for…

  • My egg sits under a white aluminum carport which is only 7' or 8' high. Sometimes when I have the egg going at 700+ I can hear the aluminum making small popping sounds as it expands rapidly but I have never had an issue with smoke or soot build-up. …
  • That is one of the best looking tables I have seen in a while. Nice work. Did you make it all yourself or buy it and add the granite? I would be afraid to cook on it or get it dirty! You may not see any problems with the granite under the egg but…
  • Wow - you sure got your kit fast. Probably because you are not too far from me. The lady at the post office was not too thrilled to print and stick 50 postage labels on all of the kits but she got it done. Glad it arrived fast and worked well for yo…
  • I had the same problem a year ago. My cholesterol was tested during a routine checkup and it was so high that it was way off the charts, even for the high range, and they wanted to admit me to the hospital. My doctor was aware of my egg and heavy me…
  • Happy to do it and glad that it is working out well for everyone. So far I have heard back from about 8 people that have tried it and all is well. I know that I was very happy to find this method and I have been using it ever since. In my opinion it…
  • I avoided buying a BBQ Guru for a long time. Didn't think it would be worth the cost. Finally got an older model used for $125 and it worked great! Sold it at my cost and got a new digital model for myself which also works great. I use it on every s…
  • Glad to hear that it worked out well for you mikeb. I would still recommend using the 91% isopropyl alcohol because 99% may not be safe and may not work as well for the reasons that we discussed via email. Be careful and enjoy it. Like I mentione…
  • UPDATE ON 2/12: ALL OF THE KITS ARE TAKEN. I WILL BE SHIPPING SOON. PLEASE DO NOT SEND FURTHER ORDERS.
