  • Re: Yeti IPO

    What is interesting to me is that we are on a website for a product that is definitely the highest price in the market.  There are a number of competitors that have come in with allegedly the same product and at a lower price.  But the BGE keeps chugging along and hasn't seen their sales or market eroded and they haven't gone into bankruptcy.  The market is flooded with Visions and Akorns and Primos and Kamado Joes but BGE is still here.  I look at both of them as similar, top of the line products and there will usually be a longer term demand for that sector of the market.

    As for the stock to the original owners and employees, that's what happens when companies grow and go public.  You start with the original guys putting a lot of their own money on the line.  They then bring in Private Equity for additional capital to manage their tremendous growth.  Eventually they go public and the original, founding team gets to cash out, or at least reduce their investment.  I say good for these guys. They had a vision and went for it.  They have had competition for a couple of years now and other than the 1st quarter that had a bunch of extraordinary financial items, they are still growing sales and making a lot of money. 
  • Re: Digique please help

    I have a DigiQ also and use for any low and slow cooks I do.  I know how to do manually but I know that I would be up every hour all night checking temps.  The controller gives me piece of mind.  Certainly not a necessity but it works for me. I guess I don't know why people get so fired up on things like this.  If I want to buy a controller I buy one. i don't own a Yeti cooler but happy that others get pleasure from theirs.  Who cares?  If it helps you cook better or keeps your beer cooler, more power to you. Some are just not happy unless they are throwing sh*t at others.

    Even this Buckeye gives you the thumbs up.  Especially since it's not that other Michigan team...
  • Re: Bucks v Ducks (OT)

    You can guess who I am voting for too. This team believes in themselves and it is going to be a great game no matter what the outcome. And I never understand all the Ohio State hate or for any team for that matter.. Except for the Wolverines. I hate those guys. GO BUCKS!!!
