    You're going to need a crane to lift that thing.

    Not only does it sound impressive, I've never seen a 80# bag of charcoal either.

    Guess I get to see both at my local dealer one day.

    Do you think they will update the nest or just add another brace to the XL nest? :laugh:
    If I was better at math I would try and guess the weight.
    Will be a hoot to see in action.
    Thank you,

    I would only consider that if it has a platesetter

    ithis isnt april 1.....are these for real?...

    How much $$$$$? and when is one available!

    I'd like to see what the hinge mech looks like on this monster!

    Kind of bad not to have it on a paver or the green feet even if it's not a working model.
    Thank you,

    some stainless steel braided wire hung from the daisy wheel would allow you to set the height to anything you want :-)
  • CrimsongatorCrimsongator Posts: 5,795
    To light it, just toss the 80lb of charcoal in whole and light the paper :woohoo:
  • ShinAmanoShinAmano Posts: 90
    :laugh:

    You know that seems just too big. But I imagine there will be a small group of people who will pick it up and enjoy it...

    What to XLs cost I have to imagine this will be in the $2K + price range.
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    that's gotta be a plastic prop. hahaha

    little steven can't see the top of his daisy wheel as it it.

    and a flashback would toast my afro

  • Can I get a Three Tier rack if I'm concerned about adequate cooking space?
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    That thing is obscene...it's gotta be pushing 800 or 900#...watch out whole hog competitors..
  • Photo EggPhoto Egg Posts: 7,799
    New XL today with nest will run about $1200.00.
    I bet this baby, if was functional would run 4-5K.
    Thank you,

  • Imagine a flashback on one of those.....
  • FencewireFencewire Posts: 34
    I wonder how long it would take to fabricate a trailer to hold 2 of those, and if it can be done before next football season.
  • Hey I need one of these. It solves the problem of which cut of meat to cook... Just cook the whole cow! B)
  • 2Fategghead2Fategghead Posts: 9,623
    I am in awe. I never thought something like this would come out. Recon it takes two people the set the fire box and ring in the egg.

    If your a dump and burn kinda person you will need your neighbor to help with the new 80 pound bags of lump. :blink:

    I guess Tom (tjv) needs to get on the ball. :woohoo:

    Might be worth taking a ride over to the convention and taking a look.


     
  • It comes with one of these to lift the dome

    Sure.. remember there probably won't be football next season for a while, unless some sort of magic happens today, and they get an extension.

    Sorry Darian, that things won't fit in the Red Rooster...you're on your own. Plus you would have to add onto your deck...better pass on this thing ;)

    Imagine rolling those eggs out for an eggfest. :woohoo:
  • Photo EggPhoto Egg Posts: 7,799
    We could make it fit in the truck. Have you ever seen "Monster Garage"?

    WOW!!! Looks like I may have to add an annex to the Chicken Coop.

    I think Salado would be a great place to cook on one. Bring it on. Texas is big enough to handle it.
