  • I am in Florida and my MiniMax isn't for sale so I can't help you there.

    But I wanted to congratulate you on the decision to add a MM to your stable. After a little practice with it you won't regret it. The MM is my favorite egg. Quick an easy to prep. Quick to temp and easy to control the temp. Cleanup is a breeze. And with the right grid setup you can do just about anything the other sizes can do; just not as much protein. But how often do you need to do 6 butts or 8 racks of ribs? That's what the Large is for.

    I sincerely hope you (and @714egghead) get a MiniMax soon.

    Please do not rule out a Mini. I have both Mini and MiniMax and us the Mini way more than the MM. 
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • The Mini could be a good option but it just seems a little too small for me. Its amazing how much difference the extra 3" on the grate make in the MiniMax.

    The MM size is nice when doing smaller cooks for sure. With that said, I don't have the MM but picked up the Joe Jr. before the MM was out. I, too, have the Mini and its good as well, but too small to take camping (depending on what you're cooking). Its a good size unit to add to your stable. Now that all of my kids have left the house, we don't use the BGE XL much anymore... the medium is my go to for tri-tips or smaller meals for momma and I.... The MM would work just as well.

    @Audi40, no harm in asking as you never know, but you might want to check Craig's List to further your chances. Also if you can travel a little you might be able to pick up one at an Eggfest for less money, but also carry that hard to pass up lifetime warranty on the ceramic parts. Breakage isn't a what if issue, but when it happens issue and buying cheap now can bite you in the future!

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    @Audi40 another thought is looking for a small. A M/M is a small with the base shortened. Granted the M/M has a cute little stand. It's also the latest sweetheart which appeals to some eggers,  but the small is now the forgotten stepchild. You might even be able to talk a dealer down who wants to move it!

    The time to buy one is at an Eggfest. I paid $379 for mine at the Sunshine State Eggfest last year.

    hope that's still the price.
