Just Sold Another Egg

We asked the guy who is going to install our new glass shower enclosure to come late to measure for it. Then I took the liberty of firing up Lily Large to cook a couple of butts for my International Workforce Crew tomorrow and Shirly Small to cook up some ABT's to show him how good they are.

By the end of his visit he measured to 1/32" toleratences, ate a mess of ABT's, tried some Jalapeno/lime Frito Scoops with cream cheese and candied jalapeno slices that were slowly heated on the Egg, and heard the entire Chicken Ranch story. He learned enough about the Egg that he said no less than three times that he's buying an Egg.

It was Overtime for us but sometimes Eggheads just have to do what they have to do to sell an Egg.

Y'all will like him.

    Great yob! How many more bodyparts and house projects you got to go for a sold out event?? LOL
  • Leyroy,

    They owe you a bundle!

  • I've touted the big green egg to several folks. So far it seems my tally is standing at selling 2 primo's, a kamado joe, a bubba keg and a grill dome.... Fortunately the Chevy dealer is trying to get me a job at the local ford dealership.....
    It seems I need to go to the spring chicken school of selling.

  • Ha.... Body parts are quickly running out. House projects are quickly growing.

    We are never 'sold out' at the Chicken Ranch. Just wait your turn LOL...

  • Yes they do, but to pay all who sold Eggs for them would bankrupt the company.

    If just 'Cooking' on the Egg was the only fun experience, being an Egghead would be rather dull.

  • You're looking at it all wrong... Some of those in your tally will eventually see the error or their ways and purchase an Egg.

    I'm of the opinion that a wee bit of knowledge about a product mixed with a great deal of enthusiasm is sufficient to sell anything.

  • Just doing what you do well. What you say and do is in itself sales activity. Payment is the only remaining action.

    Spring "The Buyer Is Sold On The Purchase Before Making The Purchase" Chicken
  • Gee, Leroy, I'm gonna have to start a BGe 401K just on your sales record :laugh:
  • Ha, there are probably lots of 'silent' Eggheads out there who sell more Eggs than I do, but they don't go cluck'n their beaks every time like me.

    In fact, you may be among them. It's easy to tell the 'silent' Egghead sales force: they smile a lot. You are an Egghead and you smile a lot, and you are definitely the 'silent' type.

    Even so, a 401k sounds good.

    If I were the distributer you would have a supply of ready to go eggs on the ground.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • Speaking of 'recruting,' the Egg is a great recruiting tool for college football players.

    Coach says, "Young man, if you come with us you can have a go at the Egg whenever you want, or have a go at Miss Team Spirit whenever you want. What'll it be boy?"


    Oh wait, maybe I should use a different 'recruiting' example.

    But you know what I mean.

  • You mean like "Being Prepared," as in the Boy Scouts?

    Then I would have to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverant.

    At least most of the time.

    Hummmmmmm! Might be a good plan for just about everybody.

    Way to go Leroy! ;)
  • Of course he has to actually go buy it but I armed him with my card, the name of the dealer closest and the suggestion to say, "Spring Chicken sent me."

    He will be in good hands.

  • LOL. The Chevy dealer just knows that you are too good to be selling Goverment Motors products. A fine man like you deserves the association with FORD.

    Atta boy SC, keep promoting those eggs. By chance, did you happen to be a Boy Scout or possibly an Eagle Scout?

  • Thanks... Yes, I was a Boy Scout. First Class. The troop disbanded before I could go any further.

    I read every Boy's Life magazine through and through. Many of the skills and confidences I have today came from that early training.

    I treasure every moment in the Boy Scouts. I wish every kid could experience it.
