  • Interesting topic here for sure. When BGE flat out voided warranties for purchases at Sam's Club or Costco most people on here said: "Righfully so!". Now that Vision does the same for people buying from a third party vendor, people have problems. …
  • Shipping 50 pounds or 60 wouldn't be cheap, but even if it is a $100, it would be half the price of the mini. Get your east coast connections and get them shipped to you if you can.
  • I am in Reno, NV and have been hunting for this grill for a while. Like somebody already stated, its a test market thing and only available in select NY/ NJ and CA Costcos. Nothing in the Bay Area. I checked. They have a bunch in Brooklyn and Bric…
  • Sounds good. Thanks guys. I ll talk to my dealer.
  • Emailed BGE about a broken firebox on my Mini on July 8th. Got an autoresponse that said they d get back to me within 48hrs. Didn't hear a word.
  • @Chubbs, this brid was pretty small. About 3 pounds I would say. I have fit bigger ones without a problem. Had one close to 5 lbs and it was fine. Just needed a longer cook and it looked massive on the Mini @caliking, yes. Always direct. about 400-4…
  • travisstrick said: Found this today. It's for a large with wings and nest. Never mind the paper, it's the most recent version of large with ss grate. Went to my local Sam's Club and they didn;t have any. Might be a regional thing.
  • Been using Weber cubes for 4 years now. Never an issue and no smells. They are one of the cheapest starter items around.
  • If money is a big issue and you want a ceramic cooker, you might want to check around. All the Eggcessories work in other kamados really well. I don't mean to open up a can of worms here, so if you need more info, I would be more than happy to help…
  • I'm in northern Nevada and have about 5 places that sell the egg here. The prices for  Large here vary from 700-950. most places have them at $899. I think the nest was $170. not sure about mates. One of the dealers just had 25% off all accessories…
  • Thank you for all your suggestions guys. I am still figuring out what I will do. When I'm done, I will post it for sure.
  • caliking said: @Mickey has a mod to possibly prevent this from happening. Involves some gasket strips at the points where the legs of the stand meet the ring, covered in high temp temp. Creates a sort of air gap between the stand and the egg. …
  • Scottborasjr said: That's not fun at all. Really glad there wasn't more damage.  I guess if it ever happens again call @shtgunal3 and he will do his best to extinguish the flames with vomit.  My vomit would have too much alcohol most evenings a…
  • Ok. Thanks for explaining that. It is all metal. I ll check when I get back home, but I am pretty sure it is metal.
  • Sorry guys that I didn't post the link, but I figured you would find it, because of the age of the internets. Same with the coupon. That is how I found the coupon. I don't know exactly what you mean by head to the drive and I am not in the disas…
  • asianflava wrote: For your buddy, a Large is a PITA to move by yourself. When I transport it by myself, I have to take the lid out of the band to get it in/out of the truck and on/off the nest. It's not that it is super heavy (like the XL) but…
  • Kenny 13 wrote: If he is mostly cooking for himself, how often would he be cooking for enough people to fire up the XL? I think that he will be cooking 80-90% for himself, same as I do. I mostly use my Mini for my cooks, but when I do piz…
  • I love mine It is great when you want to do a quick cook for yourself. I also take it with me when I want to cook something at work. It works great for chicken steak, etc. It is also a great camping, take-a-long, grill. And it looks rea…

  • I leave my Mini out. I think that it can take the rain, snow and the UV here in Reno, NV. I will report if anything out of the ordinary happens.
  • Thanks. Will do that. Have the stone left over from my Mini.

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Skiing Motorcycles (CBR600RR) Cars (VW R32) My dog BJJ and dog are on top though. Phew, need to work more to pay for all of it. :-D
  • Nicht schlecht! How do you like that charcoal compared to regular charcoal?
  • Mine fell off and the middle piece broke. Luckily the warranty covered it. This is on a mini. I know that Grill Dome has screws in their adjustable tops in order for them not to fall off. If this is a common occurrence a screw should fix the proble…
  • We have Prime beef at our Costco here. They have various cuts. Ribeye, NY Strip and Rib Roasts. You can also get a whole cut of meat and cut it yourself and save about 30% from the regular price. They change their prices every Tuesday and Friday. C…
  • That describes it perfectly! I didn't measure the temperature in the thigh this time, but have on previous cooks and it was 180 but still bloody. I personally don't mind, but have people around me that freak out when they see chicken. I take great p…
  • Thanks. The joint separated while pulling the chicken off the grate. I guess ill just cook longer or put the brick on. Thirdeye, thank you as well. Ill try that next time. I think it will fit on the mini.
  • I would say that you can get 4-6 hrs of low and slow cooking on the mini. That is my experience with brisket. My biggest problem has been dome temp, because it never returns where it was. I think that the mini is just too small to get the right temp…
  • I might be the only guy to disagree just a bit on here. I am new to the Egg, but a huge fan. I bought a Weber Genesis gas grill 3 years ago and paid $600. I didn't know about the Egg at that time, and charcoal was tainted by lighter fluid. I didn't…
