Wonder what's up as it hasn't been snapped up in the month it has been listed!

    The QC, and surrounding area, is chock full of blue collar, bumpkin cheap azzes.

    Paid $400 for my new small, not even remotely interested in a lesser performing egg, for a higher price.

    1 mistake, owners or not, and there goes the value of the egg. I found and bought a few used M/M's for about $200 but the fact that they didnt have a warranty bothered me enough to sell and get a new with warranty. Already replaced 3 items under warranty with no hassle.

    The market for expensive small heavy used ceramic cookers with no warranty just isn't very strong I guess. And for the same $$ I can have a new kamado Joe jr delivered free to my door.

    Well, Ron, apparently they are too expensive, heavy, KJ jr is better, blue collar scum can't afford one, and in certain parts of the country you can get a new one for $6.00 less. Oh, and they aren't efficient. And the warranty thing. I like mine. So I got that going for me. =)

    Huh? I posted that link with the honest thought that it was brand new, still in the box so it probably has not been registered so that wasn't an issue. Couple that with $600 is closer to the going price up here so $500 is a good starting point and lastly since the ad has a month of whiskers that the seller might be willing to come on down in price. 

    But sarcastic? Nope!

  • I thought you were being sarcastic when you couldnt believe it wasnt already gone but I also had "mini" in my mind when I said that. Wasnt thinking minimax. I just read right over that somehow.

    My guess is that someone may have won it in a contest and it was drop shipped since it's still on a shipping pallet. There is no sales tax on it so that saves money (6% here in PA) plus the seller may come down in price.

    I paid this out of a guy's trunk . He gave me the receipts and all info, it was brand new.
    i am all registered up with no issues. He had a change of heart after lifting the damn thing.
    with taxes I saved $160

    @badinfluence ... Clinton, Iowa? Hey Larry, is that you selling another Mini-Max?  Though I got the last two you had!

    I wondered that also, but never said anything! After all, Larry sort of put Clinton, IA on the BGE map wouldn't you say??? BTW Larry showed up in his BRIGHT orange pick-em-up truck after you left Pete's Eggfest in Sterling.
