Pretty cool ...:

Shows how close the BGE copied (and improved upon) one of the original kamado designs.

    That is quite a find! Mint, still with some original packing/wrapping. I have no idea if that price is way out of line but I imagine that a serious collector would dig that.

    Ah, the "modern" style kamado.That would look right at home in the BGE museum in my opinion.  Thanks for sharing!

  • Very interesting as a collector/museum piece.  After you use it the first time, it is just a used Kamado.  I remember a few years ago, there were ~20 Black Knight pinball machines found still in the factory box in a warehouse.  It was the same with them - once you started playing them, they were just BKs in very, very good condition.

    Cool find....I'm not sure about mid century though?  Anyone do any actual digging on it?

  • That makes sense.  I thought I remembered Ponch having one of these things behind his trailer.

  • If I had @SGH overtime money, I would be all over that.  It is really cool.  Loved seeing the packaging too.

    Sadly brother Ozzie, if you had my money, you would be in the bread line my friend.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

  • They've cut the price in half now. My posting it here really ramped up the views to 400+. The seller probably thinks there is a ton of interest, but no one is biting.
