  • Sorry for your loss. My wife & I just moved to Murfreesboro and are big into cycling and planning to look for a house in Franklin in a few months. We've been riding Veteran's Parkway which seems pretty safe since it's a very wide road without much t…
  • Well, we made the move, and my XL made it without a scratch! If you ever need to move one and can't get original pack out, the UPS store sells 36" double walled boxes that fit it perfectly. Just packed it with some moving blankets underneath & throu…
  • I've had my XL for 5 years and only had to replace the PS which cracked after about 6 months. I'm moving and got my XL packed in a 36" cube box with a whole lot of padding. It's packed in relo-cube which is like a PODS unit but smaller. I tried to g…
  • I have one as well, and it's wonderful. Much better range than my older Maverick.
  • I think a lot of this may be a frenzy of activity before we see the widespread adoption of chip & pin cards here in the states. They've had it in Europe for years, and I've read that it really has cut back on credit card fraud. I only have one swipe…
  • Thanks. I think it will be ok as long as I can get the pack out. I'll make sure it's strapped/bungee corded to the container. It will be hard to leave Tampa since I've been here for 20 years. We still have plenty of friends and family down here, s…
  • I've had it a couple of times with my Chase card. The first one they caught and froze the account. The second one I caught while reviewing my bill and had the account frozen & the transaction refunded.  Always check those line items!
  • yljkt said: I'm actually in the moving business. If you use PODS you should be fine. They have a machine that lifts the entire pod on and off the truck and it keeps them level. Some of the other companies use flat-beds to load and unload. That'…
  • Thanks, Ron. Good info on Papa Murphy's. Just responded to your PM.
  • Very nice job! I love the layout. 
  • We had Pappa Murphy's at my sister's place in Murfreesboro. It was cooked in the oven and tasted ok, but I found the crust to be rather thick & chewy. My wife makes our dough from scratch and rolls it pretty thin, so it comes our thin & crispy on th…
  • Get the Flameboss. It is the key to successful overnight cooks IMHO.
  • Glad it worked out for you.
  • Best table I've seen on here for sure. Congratulations!
  • This forum loves to spend my money for me. Just went & bought the iGrill2 from Amazon.
  • Not sure about these, but I bought the iGrill for a buddy of mine, and I really liked the interface on the app & the bluetooth had really good range. Way better range than my Maverick. When my Maverick finally dies, I'm going to get an iGrill.
  • Go with the XL. You'll eventually want an egg that is easily transportable, so you can go with the Mini or MInimax.
    in Which size? Comment by volfan1 April 26
  • That is a great deal.
  • Agree with Doug on the Thermapen & remote thermometer. I have the Maverick, and it's ok but the range isn't great. I bought an iGrill for a buddy of mine, and we found that the bluetooth range with his phone was much better than the Maverick, so tha…

  • I heard they partnered up with RTIC.
  • Costco Anejo Tequila. It's $20 for a liter, but it is good stuff. You can thank me later.
  • I love my original FB, but I wish I had waited to pull the trigger now that the 200 is out. I would really like to be able to remotely manage my cooks.
  • Oh. I'm putting my XL & mini on Craig's list right this minute. /s
  • I believe the warranty is 3 years. If you're past that, I'd look at getting an adjustable rack from Ceramic Grill Store. That's what I'm going to do once my current PS cracks.
  • I'm 43. I bought an XL 4 years ago and the mini 3 years ago. 
  • I grew up in the Noog and lived there until 1996. If you want outdoor activity, the Ocoee river is a little less than an hour (depending on traffic) drive north of Chattanooga. It's a beautiful area with whitewater rafting, hiking, camping, fishing,…
  • Got my RTIC 45 in today. Nice cooler & will be perfect size for road trips.
  • Just got an email last night that my cooler is on the way. Will be here tomorrow!
