I'm driving through San Leandro, Ca. and see a BGE sign in front of a shop. Wow, I'll finally meet another egghead face to face. Inside it's all pellet stoves and fireplaces with one large BGE gathering dust in a corner.
"You sell Big Green Eggs?" says me.
"Yeah, theyre OK." says the owner.
"I have a Large" I tell him.
"Where do you get your briquettes?" said BGE dealer asks.
"You use lump in them, not briquettes" I respond.
"Why?" asks the store owner.
"Too much ash, read the book" I advise
"Oh, maybe that's what was wrong" BGE dealer says and yells to his employee, "This guy says to use lump in the Big Green Egg."
With dealers like this BGE doesn't need enemies.
I hadn't even been tempted to fire it up since the BGE. It says "Charbroil" on it and the box it came in said "Brinkman". A solid, if leaky, side burner. It was bulky item pick up time for the local garbage service so out it went. While we and our guests were enjoying Thanksgiving dinner I saw a guy loading it up on his pickup. It will find a good home where will be used. I've moved on.
