Awesome...what time shall I come over?

A guy at work said there's a big egg convention, or grill out, coming to town soon and you can buy their used eggs (after the show) for a steep discount.  Any of you know anything about that being true and really discounted heavily?

The EggtoberFest?

Yes, they cook on a bunch of Eggs doing demos all day. Then they sell them at the end of the day. Not sure of the discount, 20% maybe

I think you have to register well ahead of time to get on the list to get an Egg

Grilled chicken breasts tonight.  They were really good.  Had a difficult time keep the temp to 400 degrees, but it didn't affect the taste or tenderness.

If all you get is the BGE and the nest, that isn't a deal.

Right, you get a bit more (read above on that page), but it isn't a killer deal.

A buddy at work just bought a large egg for $799.  He said it came with the nest, stone, page setter, grate grabber, ash tool, and some other stuff.

It was at an Ace hardware store on Roswell road.

^^^thats a deal. Also, most places will sell you a stand alone egg, but you have to push them on it. The last one I bought was a large, floor model for $550. $250 will get you a good bit of add ons. It would be great to give Roswell hardware business because of CFR. Let them know that's why you're going there if you do. Cook's warehouse has been great to me too. Like I said the other night, a large is a great size if you are planning on sticking with one. I feel like I'd hesitate to cook as much on an XL

Why?

Pure speculation since I don't own one. More lump needed, slower to get going (I think), more expensive accessories. I have a family of six and one large is plenty for us. I never hesitate to fire it up even for something small.  Don't get me wrong, I think the XL would be awesome for big groups and parties. I know Tony has loaded his large with at least two pork butts, but I bet you could do 4.
