    I'm 25 guess i got started early.

    I wish I gotten the egg when I was 25...consider yourself lucky.

    . I am fixing to have my first child and wanted to get it beforarse my wife would not let me. 

    Chad you must be from the South. Only in the South are we fixing to do something! And congratulations on your new baby.
    Damn right born and raised in the south and fixing to have my own to teach proper southern English.
  • I'm so old I still have the Dress I wore the night the Titanic went down and I snuck into a life raft.
  • just turned 39 (YIKES)...  but had my BGE for about 3 yrs, so that would put me @ about 36 when I bought it. 

    I agree that I think the "average" age of Eggers is a bit older - I'm figuring that's due to a couple of reasons:
    1. The Egg is a big expenditure compared to a more traditional grill, so younger folks might not be as financially capable
    2. I dunno bout you guys, but when I was younger, my taste buds weren't as discerning - I mean, I used to think Mickey-D's was a good meal, and that Taco Bell was the "go to" for Mexican, and that Sizzler made good steaks!!! :))  ... I'd never dreamed I could cook a steak as good as I do on the Egg, and the steaks we all make are BETTER than most "mid level" restaurants, and just as good as the high end ones!! 
    3. If you're retired, you probably have a bit more "Free" time on your hands, so  you need a hobby, and the Egg is the PERFECT thing to fill your spare time!!

    so yeah, those are my thoughts as to why the Egghead community tends to be a bit ... shall we say... "more mature" <:-P

    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    Just turned 28 a few weeks ago, my fiance rented out chef JJ's backyard ( for a surprise bday party to support my addiction. it was an amazing night and chef JJ presented our party of around 20 with a great meal including a mushroom salad, halibut, lamb and a sweet corn souffle! Also a great selection of local wine local beer that the staff kept flowing all night. I have plenty more pics if you guys are interested, but BIG thanks to chef JJ and all of his crew at JJ's Backyard!
