Just had a text via a friend of a friend about a guy who supposedly had an Egg he wanted to sell so I gave him a call. What he had purchased was a Broil King Keg "better than an Egg" so the salesman said.
I'm always suspect when someone wants to get rid of an Egg. And, each time I have run into this situation I offer to go to their home and show them the basics of how to use the Egg. Lighting the charcoal, adjusting temperatures etc. In each instance (6 or 7 times since about 2000) the folks have kept the Egg and been happy about their purchase.
This poor guy bought an $899 double walled metal cooker thinking it was okay.
He's going to get rid of it himself this winter and in the spring go shopping for an Egg. He asked me if I would come with him when he buys his Egg and give him a hand learning about it. He's only in Rhode Island about 40 miles from me so it will be a piece of cake.
I'll be more than happy to help him out to get another poor soul sucked into the vortex of the Cult of the Egg!
