Had a busy weekend. Made Paella Saturday night in the rain. Not many pics as a result. Then did some pulled beef on Sunday for football. All in all was a great weekend! I even cooked the rest of the mussels for my 9 year old in between haha
Dealer I bought my Blue Egg from sold it saying it was a limited edition Florida Gator Blue Egg. I'm thinking being in Florida he was just saying that as a sales guy. He just wanted to move them. I've never heard any official reason for the blue color. Other than they were tinkering with different colors and ran ~100-200 blue and that was it.
I bought mine in Florida in that area in that time period. Posting pics over the years could be challenging because there is always a newbie saying it's not real, painted, a knock off, etc., etc. Probably why even to this day I'm here only so often. If it's not green some people can get not so nice.
When I bought mine it had a dual hinge to open it. Was a real pain. I upgraded that to a single hinge you had to manually pull down when the top was open to release and lower the top. Then I upgraded that to the spring assist. I've changed the nest twice. The gasket was changed once. I upgraded the thermometer to a true temp.
