Eggbert meets his match
 
Guys (and gals)... Meet Eggberta...

I saw an ad on the Chicago Craig's List yesterday evening for a BGE for sale and it was less than 5 miles from my house! After sending an e-mail to Divemaster to stay away :-D I called the guy. He called me back this morning and my wife and I went to look at it. The CL ad said that it was a large and it had a wheeled cart so I was expecting a Nest. I've never seen a wheeled cart like this one, but it works (for now). As you can tell, it is an older Egg with the old bands and the top does not have a daisy wheel, but it is in great shape. The ring and firebox are intact and there are no chips. dings, etc. on the shell. there are a few drops of paint, but I'm sure that I can get those off. He was asking $500, we settled on $450. Probably not the best deal, but I don't have to do anything to it to use it except clean the grid.

Here are some more pics...

It also came with a bag of mesquite lump...

He bought the lump at a local liquor store. It is the strangest charcoal i have ever seen...

It is actual logs! I'm going to try it and if it burns well I know where to get more.

Congrats Ronelle !!!! I think that's a good price. Condition looks good.

The charcoal look half baked.

Cool. I almost made a deal to trade my medium for a large. Think I'll keep it and keep looking for another large. Cangrats on the new addition!

There were a couple of chunks in the firebox of the Egg. They looked good so I tossed them into the bag, but the whole bag is logs averaging around three inches in diameter and 6-12 inches long. I just wonder how it will burn in the Egg. I can always use it in the Good One since the fire box is bigger.

Congrats Ron!! Looks like a happy green couple there. Maybe they'll have a litter and you can send me one of the egg pups!!

Dr_KY 03-15-2008 06:37 PM

You guys re killin me over here!

Norcoredneck 03-15-2008 09:50 PM

Would guess that cart is for a planter. Looks like it is functional though. Nice find.

Nice score on the egg Ron L. That mesquite Lump is the same stuff I buy a Smart and Final here in Oxnard CA. I mix it with Kingsford depending on what I am doing. It burns hot and everynow and then gets a bit sparky. I like it but not straight:lol:

Bbq Bubba 03-15-2008 10:46 PM

Nice score Ron!!! Glad to see you get there before Dive, he's getting a lil outta control on smokers.....NTTAWWT :biggrin:
Gonna take em both out on the circuit this year??
