We've been waiting months for the new portable Big Green Egg Minimax Kamado grill. They are finally shipping them and we picked one up in Tempe, AZ on our way from Tucson to New Mexico for Thanksgiving at her mom's house.

The ceramic kamados are heavy, this one near 80# stretches the definition of portability and violates our "travel light" rule but we're anxious to fire it up. We can accommodate it. It fits under the bed cover of our truck and has sturdy handles to strap it down. I think a little foam between the ceramic parts will be a good measure for travel.

One day I would like one of those smokers - will be interested in your full review in a couple years when I may be in the market! Good luck

Actually the BGE Minimax weighs 63#, not 80#. My mistake. It's all new to me, grill, smoker and oven capable of 700 degrees F. Will be interesting. Any others using a Kamado grill?

The dimensions were perfect for the towel rack over the cabinet door.
Purchased at Lowe's. I took a close up pic so you can see the product label if anyone is needing one.

Agree and now is the time of the year to change batteries in your trailer and home smoke detectors.

Gave Up the Ghost

After 8 years of faithful service, the Group 24 Lifeline AGM batteries expired. Order 2 new Group 27's to replace them. Order them via Lew of AM Solar. The batteries were on my porch 2 days later. WOW, what service. Thanks Lew!

A new-to-me 30x50' shop, with a decent RV garage door, and wired with a 30amp RV outlet to finally house the Airstream indoors. Only took 2 years to find one on a decently large lot.



Also ordered a replacement converter, a Progressive Dynamics model, to help ensure the batteries don't get boiled.
