    There's been a disturbance in the Force...

    Thanks, all - really appreciate all the kind and encouraging words. I've been away on business the past few days and have yet to put Darth through his cooking paces. I thought I'd get the burn-in out of the way before I do my first cook. Just finishing that this evening (took a while longer than expected, but that's a whole other thread...)

    Its California -beach weather every day of the year! Not. Yesterday happened to be the first day we've seen sun in weeks. It was as if the clouds parted for the occasion!

    Thanks Charles. With all of the gorgeous colors out there, it was a tough call, but I really dig the matte black and the way it makes the stainless pop. I was prepared for an upgrade, but this thing has far exceeded expectations (and I haven't even fired it up yet)! The quality of the build and components is outstanding. The spring mechanism for the lid is something to behold - pics don't do it justice!
  6. Lord Vapor (aka Darth Vapor) has arrived. He's still got a little interstellar debris, but nothing a good wet rag won't take care of. The Smoke is strong in this one...

    The sun is shining (for the first time in a long time here), the birds are chirping and I've got big wooden box outside my house. More to come - I've got some work to do!

    Thanks and congratulations, Jim! Its a beauty. Mine was supposed to arrive yesterday, but there was a hiccup with the carrier and the crate never made it onto the truck. So much for my weekend meal plans! Good things come to those who wait, I suppose. Now scheduled for arrival on Monday - fingers crossed...

    23" ultimate delivered

    Congrats, Adventureman! I know the stalking of which you speak. I'm sitting at my computer, combing the board and anxiously awaiting the arrival of mine (scheduled to arrive sometime in the next few hours)!

    Pequod nailed it - that was the deciding factor for me. Big box scheduled to arrive tomorrow - my Ouija board unconsciousness is downright giddy...

    ckreef - I wish I could blame it on the kids, the dog or a belt too many. Caffeine (or a lack thereof - it was early on a Monday morning), may have played a role, but the sad truth is that it was totally operator error. I cut the left turn too close and rolled over an old plastic drain grate in the patio. The drain cover gave way under the weight of the Egg and that was all she wrote. You can see the hole in the patio beneath the caster in the photo. Needless to say, I don't plan on rolling the Big Bad around too much, but plan to replace all the plastic drain grates with brass, just in case!!

    tekobo - I went with the matte black squares (which I think is sexy as all get up) and added the basics - basket splitter, stainless side tables, grate grabbers and a cover. Some of the other goodies will have to wait for Fathers' Day!\ MacKenzie - pics for sure. After all, how many other times do you end up with some gigantic crate in your driveway or back yard?!

    More like dumptied the egg - big time! After perusing options, speaking with Dennis and covertly surfing this forum, its looking like I'll be getting to know y'all a bit better. Big Bad is on its way and I couldn't be more excited!

    So, this happened a couple weeks ago, as I tried to find shelter from the rain on an early Monday morning... What a way to start the week. I'm guessing a few people on this board have some ideas as to what I should do next??
