Craigslist find - old egg?

    Is that actually a real BGE?

    That is the old clay egg. It won't do cooks over 400*. I would think you could get a ceramic one for that money.

    Looks like an Imperial Kamado & not worth anywhere near the $400 they're asking.

    could be a very old egg. Or a knock off. I'd check it out, make sure it's not cracked and what kind of shape it's really in. I wouldn't pay more than 100, maybe $200 tops.

    Def pass. $400 for that super old, maybe, green egg, or $700 for a medium brand new with a lifetime warranty.

    That is a ripoff. Much better deals than that.

    Not looking for myself as I recently received a new large BGE from a buddie who's company is a distributor. He owed me a few dollars and paid me with a BGE and plate setter. Love it!

    Thougt some of you may want to see this picture. Just thought this was an interesting find as I always search Craig's for many items and particularly now a MiniBGE!

    Take care!

    I just got a never used lg with nest for $425. I'd pass on that.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I would pass for 100.00

    It may be worth getting for the day BGE decides to have a museum and needs collectibles ...but not for $400


    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.
