Default How to let go of a cooker?

How do you decide to sell a beloved smoker? I hate that it doesn't get used, but I still love it when I do use it. It would be replaced by another large Green Egg if I sell it. Plan is to list my Weber 1 touch platinum on CL list week and trying to decide if the Klose will be posted also.

I don't know how you do it. I've never done it.
The "B" WSM got retired a month ago, and that was hard enough, but at least it's still in my possession.
If'n you were closer, I'd help you part with the performer.

Viking Funeral Style?


I have a Hasty Bake, a Kettle, and a drum on CL right now. Broke my heart, but the right thing to do is the right thing to do.

DONT DO IT!!! If you need to, then maybe sell it off to a friend or family member that will use it, That way you can still have visitation rights. It's a tough choice, but you gotta do what you gotta. do. Good luck.

I would recommend a rigorous interview process with a cooking demonstration from the prospective buyers. Possibly followed by a probation period and the aforementioned visitation rights. You have to be cautious in these extreme situations!

The Weber is going to a Brethren, and I will post the Klose here first. Got 8 bags of Rancher as well.

Try to unload it at a BBQ competition. That way you'll know it's going to a good home.

Come to think about it, I could use one of those.

I can remember the day you brought home you first Egg- you really dove into it head first! Then came another and another and now you are competing with them. I've been dreading the day I would read that you are contemplating getting rid of your Klose.

I know that feeling having cookers around taking up space and not getting used and have just become attatched to, a Platinum is one thing-hey its just a Weber with a table, but a Klose-thats something else. Big decision- I'd try to keep them in a BBQ family and advertise in a BBQ organization you compete in.

Last year I bought my Large BGE at the PNW Eggfest with the proceeds of a couple years accumulations of colored Weber kettles and gas grills, a rebuilt Kamado and an Egg table I built. I felt like one of those crazy cat hoarders that fret when the ASPCA raids their place, but felt a whole lot better when I had a brand new Egg.

Tough letting go.

Congrats on the new Large!
