    Came from a 2006 Eggtoberfest, Kevin Jacques.
    Here's the proof: 
  • Re: Well, my BGE adventure is off to a terrible start

    It would be helpful if everyone would just kind of back off on this. The dealer is very reputable and goes overboard to satisfy a customer......I know this and I'm the one that got this dealership started, so their reputation is quite good; trust me on this! This will be taken care of, the distributor makes the dealer go through the process by the book. 
  • Re: Mini Max vs. Mini

    In the first place, the original question was whether to buy a mini or MMax. One of the comments that the mini is a toy is completely misleading and basically false. I've used mine for years just for the two of us. But, I haven't used it in over a year since I got the new accessory from Turbostream. This thing turns your large into a mini with an elevated half-moon raised charcoal grate that sits right under your grid. It can very easily be removed when you want to use your large as a large and it also acts like a Kick Ash basket to dispose of the ash. It can also be used as the heat source for indirect cooking. It's a lot cheaper than a mini as well. By the way, we're selling the MMax at the GA Mt. Eggfest for $499, eggfest price.

    This has nothing to do with Egging, other than the strong likelihood I'll purchase a 2nd, smaller Egg for travelling.  I am married, 3 kids: 6,3 and 1 yr old.  We love having them, and have a lot of fun.  However, we often find ourselves not going places on the weekends because it's difficult with 3 small kids.   We also realize this is temporary.  Lately, we've been discussing the possibility of getting a small pull behind camper/rv, like a nice pop up, where we can store it in our garage or basement, and take spontaneous trips to the mountains for short camping trips.   It seems like a good way to take short vacations with kids, let them have fun and not spend thousands of dollars everytime we leave home for a few nights.   We're a few hours from north GA, North Carolina and the Great Smoky Mountains.   So, we have plenty to do fairly close.   Plus, I love fly fishing for trout.  So, it would give me an avenue to take the camper occasionally, stay overnight and be beside a stream in the morning.  
    I'm asking here because the guys on this board seem to be very like-minded and have a lot of the same interests.   Anyone who has camped like this with families, is it reasonable, or fun, to camp in a roomy pop up with 3 small kids?   Are there any secluded places to camp in state and national parks?  I would love to pull into a spot in the Smokies and not feel like I'm in a makeshift trailer park.   Not trying to be uppity, but I've never looked at the stereotypical RV campground as very appealing.   There seem to be some fairly remote, nice places to camp with smaller pull behinds, though, like Cloudland Canyon and Vogel State Park locally.  This seems like a way for us to get away, let our kids play and run, enjoy ourselves (and our children) and not spend a ton of money doing so.   It also allows me the opportunity to teach my kids about the outdoors, introduce them to camping and start building an appreciation for nature.  So, there are a lot of positives.   3 worn out kids in a small trailer can turn into a negative, though :-).  Just looking for advice, support, recommendations, other things to think about.

    This is the type camper I'm considering:   .  A neighbor has one just like this and loves it.  They go with their 2 kids all the time.  It has heating/air, an internal shower, external wash-off shower, toilet, 2 king beds and a full bed pull out.    And it stores in their basement garage.   So, it's always ready to go.  Sorry for the book....and thanks for any input you can provide.  
    Why don't you come to the GA Mt. Eggfest May 13th and 14th, camp out at the GA Mt. Fairgrounds at a big discount, walk to the fest and purchase your traveling egg at a big discount? The perfect solution to all your problems!!

  • Re: OHIO - Where to buy an Egg?

    Alright,

    I hate to be the "Wal-Mart" shopper here and I ALWAYS support local business (own one myself) but I am just curious to know where a good place to buy another Egg would be? I have already purchased two Eggs from Mr. Mulch in Columbus, OH. My first purchase (L) was about $1500 after tax. That included the Egg, plate setter, nest, ash tool, calzone press, apple-wood fish board, burger patty press, and a bag of lump... My second Egg (S) was around $605 out the door and it included the Egg and the plate setter... I also was quoted at $1200 for an XL in May and that was just for the Egg... Are these fair prices for OHIO? 

    After researching online it seems like MR. Mulch is a little on the high side when it comes to average prices for eggs...

    Any help would be nice. Just curious to see what people have found in the Buckeye state. Thanks! 
    Get one next week at the Porkopolis Eggfest.........great discounts and you get to go to a top-notch eggfest. http://porkopoliseggfest.com/
