    Morning Pops and all. Leon you have a blessed day as well as all. Almost 8PM here and i still feel like I'm on EDT. Maybe tomorrow I won't be as jet lagged. Weather is gorgeous and feels like spring. Lots of flowers blooming including many roses both miniature and regular.

    HEB (a grocery store chain here in Texas) has a ceramic egg grill for $600 including a cart for it. I'm thinking about buying it. It looks like the green egg but this one is black.

    Howard E. Butt grocery store. My first job was as a sack boy at the HEB in Alamo Heights on Broadway, now a Central Market. My large BGE cost around $650, and a friend built a long table for it to nest in.
    There are a number of "Kamado" style ceramic cookers (Primo, BGE, Kamado Joe, etc.), some more expensive than others. BGE isn't the cheapest, and isn't the priciest, either. Before you buy, look at BGE, or Primo, and pay attention to the small details. How thick is the ceramic? What's the guarantee? Construction of it?
    I could have bought a used one that was a stores exhibit cooking grill for a little more than half price what I finally paid for mine. They were going to throw in some of the cooking accessories they had used for a little extra. I found out that if you buy a BGE on the internet or from an original owner,the warranty is voided. Compare a couple with the HEB egg and make a decision.
    Although the initial expense was higher than a Grill master gas/charcoal/ firebox I had, it rusted out after about five years. Ceramic grill/smokers are reputed to last twenty plus years with basic common sense care.

    I did find out that you aren't supposed to use charcoal briquets (Kingsford, etc.) in them,but natural lump charcoal. You are definitely not supposed to use charcoal lighter fluid to light the lump charcoal. If you do, the petroleum burning smell will be absorbed by the ceramic,and you will taste it for a long time. I use an electric lighter.
    Good luck, my friend.

    Good morning, Cbz and good morning, Zoners. Ologan, you've just told me a ton about charcoal. I could not begin to figure out where to buy natural lump charcoal up here, but I'm going to look. I've got a six-foot long natural gas that has served me well over the past few years, but I'm thinking I should expand my horizons.

    I'm off to California on Wednesday, so it's all about getting myself and the Mrs ready to travel tonight. Have a great day, folks and be careful with the weather.

    Morning Weldon, ABQ, JB, Leon and ologan. Everyone have a good one. It is 6:45PM here but I'm trying to still post on American time. ABQ the weather is great here. Was foggy this AM and a tad chilly and cool all day. The weather is almost exactly like SF except not as much breeze here. My Mom's house is a few blocks from the ocean and we walk there most days. There are many parks with exercise equipment and tons of people riding, running, walking, doing martial arts and tai chi.

    Morning Pop's, Jobb, ABQ, Leon,and all CBZfriends.
    My older friends have returned to the mountains for the summer. Tomorrow we will play our third round of golf so far, and I have to tell you it's a little bittersweet for me this year. In the past,he would beat me when he would shoot his age (87) or lower. He's lost the first two we've played,and i fear it isn't because I've gotten much better. I pray I have him and his wife as golf partners for more years!

    Morning, Cbz. Morning everyone. Don't worry; be happy.

    Best wishes to your friends, ologan. Enjoy the golf, but more importantly, them while you have them.

    Sounds like fun, Jobberone. Enjoy
