Just wondering how many Canadians are on this form and where you are from? I myself am from Meadow Lake Sk. about 3 hours north of Saskatoon. I am just on the south side of the Boreal forest and most of our 100,000 lakes. We are still awaiting spring as there are still snow drifts higher than your truck around. I got interested in Egging after watching legendary Canadian Chef Micheal Smith use one on " Chef At Home ". I knew then I just had to have one and three years later here I am. I have had my LBGE for just over a year and it is still a pleasure to use every time I fire it up. Can't wait for it to warm up a bit more to enjoy a cold beer and a pizza out on the deck instead of the garage! It has been a looooong winter.
