  • REal interested to see what would happen if I found a specific sams location selling BGe, then called the mother ship to report specific location.   If bge was still sitting on that sales floor all summer, I would suspect foul on bge.  Bge should pr…
  • I've personally never had luck using lump as a deiderizer or dehumidifier, but who knows.... on a more related topic, if any of u has a Firehouse Subs, the sell their huge pickle buckets for $2 after they empty the pickles.  Comes with a lid and ga…
  • theyolksonyou said: Did you start with liquid in the pan? yes
  • the newer lump is usually labeled "now burns longer" on the bag, or something like that from what i remember (don't feel like walking to the garage right now to check).     i use it without any problems. 
  • Eggjlmh, are you having to pay for the shipping?   I moved cross country with my egg, and fear the day I will have to ask the local dealer for warranty service.,.
  • Bears fan here; but was rootng for GB. Rodgers is like the franchise quarterback - and son - I never had lol. On a side note, Cutler owns a Green Egg, and was talking about it on his weekly show once. Almost decided to drop my BGE off my bal…
  • Definitely a fan of harbor freight here.  But as with all stores, good for some stuff, not for others.  I've definitely saved a bunch of money on tools for doing house projects and wrenching on my car.  Others here have bought heat guns for lighting…
  • Lol, just MHO, but the top cap is pretty much useless for the mini!    Have not used mine once, and just control temp with the bottom vent.   Probably should just unload it on Ebay to reduce the net cost I paid for my mini  
  • DaveShady said: We had KJ also for a while cause ACE sells them we got kinda told no on that one. It all depends on the distributor for the stores I think. Theres a shop 50 miles from usin a different territory that has the P word and BGE all in…
  • RickyBobby said: Will you folks on here think any less of me for cooking on a red komado? Really, I'd hate to be kicked to the curb! Lol! owner of a BGE, Akorn, and Big Steel Keg here.   soon to be KJ owner too.
  • mountaindewbass said: At costco Lol, gotta question the logic and fairness of KJ selling their stuff at Costco and undermining their own dealers, but at least they didn't make up some story about a rogue distributor 
  • cazzy said:  It's evolution...you'll get there eventually. ohhhhhhh snap!
  • Lit said: Wait it has Bluetooth? No, but there already are fake imitations come from China  
  • lol those of you using the Apple analogy seem to forget that Apple almost went under, before their roaring comeback (largely sparked by an invention called the Ipod).   so maybe there is hope that BGE will survive all these strategic mistakes      …
  • Whirly said: I think $600 is a fair price for what you are getting. I don't care about other products that have been on the market for only 2 or 5 years. What value is a warranty, if a company goes out of business? Worthless. BGE has been at …
  • Jeremiah said: I was told they'll phase out the small and mini, and will give a credit towards a max for further warranty issues after heir production stops. But that was just a dealer, not bge. Wow, so if my mini cracks, I probably get…
  • stemc33 said: @SkinnyV‌, meal looks great. Did you use briquettes for the cook? If so, how well do they work? Not that you asked me, but I use briquettes on my mini.  Trader Joe's, 50 cents per pound.  Works great and you can save your…
  • Do it Ron. I've seen a big difference with flax, or any other oil that oxidizes easily (IOW, needs to be refrigerated , such as Hemp oil as well).
  • Just curious, but aren't the Coleman mini propane burners more economical than butane?
  • I've had a mini for two years and have not really enjoyed it to be honest. I've come to the realization that a woo would change my view on that. So if u decide on the mini, get him the woo too. Otherwise I don't find the thing any more useful than…
  • Hm, interesting.  Never heard of Yeti thermoses before.   And I always thought the gold standard for thermal insulation was this baby http://www.amazon.com/Zojirushi-SM-KHE48AG-Stainless-Steel-16-Ounce/dp/B005PO9T44/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=140941…
  • mountaindewbass said: The tumbler is an instant buy for me. Side note. My Costco is selling 65qt yeti's for 299.99...I paid 399.99 at Dicks Sports Must be the dirty work if a rogue distributor.
  • Lol some of you guys crack me up.  What exactly constitutes a superior ceramic?   Resistance to cracking?  Both KJ and GE have plenty of customers cracking their cookers.  I guess the only difference being that KJ will ship the replacement to your…
  • Kamado Joe is selling at Costco's with a mfg warranty.  And they're being transparent about it, rather than coming up with some excuse about a rogue distributor A few years ago, a fly rod company (I think Sage) forced them to pull gray market rods…
  • Lit, the garden gates coupon is no longer valid for kj's. Some other dealers complained, and kj told garden gates to play fair. On an unrelated note, kj is doing road shows at Costco, with significant discounts lol.
  • Still one of my favorite LeBron videos lol....
  • Let me add, if they really are going to all these extra steps in the manufacturing process to make this superior ceramic, the superior results in the real world are showing to be marginal at best.  If anything, would just show a poor operations deci…
  • All these semantics about which has the better ceramic is hogwash. Cooks between the two will taste the same. Both are equally likely to crack. Both will be replaced under warranty. For me, my loyalty came down to the dealer. BGE dealer was down …
