I think the "haters" come in with all hobbies where people buy their toys......BGE's are expensive and most regular cookers look at buyers of something like that and wonder what it is we see in that product to make us pay that much more for something than they are willing. Because they dont necessarily see it they try to dismiss it. the other side of that coin is people who would love to own an egg and are not in a financial position to own one and they lash out because of their frustration.
it's no different than if you play music and you see people react to others playing and owning Les Paul's.
of fishermen buying GLoomis rods instead of something more common and cheaper.
women buying Kate Spade purses.
running into haters is something that is never going to go away completely....it's not a new concept but you have to realize that it's because you own a highly sought after expensive brand. it comes with the territory.
