Default 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 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.

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.

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
