Default Holy Mackerel! Sticker shock at price of BGE.

With all of the hullabloo re: "The Big Green Egg" here I got to thinking I needed one. After seeing the price I decided I really didn't need one a'tall.

Any deals available? I can't find any.

Default Somehow the Costas made sense when I bought them but--

I absolutely cannot justify a Yetti. Kinda like to have a BGE. $50 ought to be about right for one.

Oh yeah, I am not going to pay for clothing with somebodies advertising on them unless it is Donald Trump.

I do have an NRA sticker and a Trump sticker on my truck.

You get what you pay for! You want a 2 minute experience? Or me love u long time? Komodo style grills will keep you happy for a really long time!lol! It's Friday and a new bottle of crown! Lol, Seriously kamado style grills/smokers are the best multi purpose outdoor cooking grills on the market!

Try pricing a new truck, it'll make that BGE price tag more bearable.

In all seriousness.....I thought before I became a double egger "man that's too much $$$". Then I ate a few meals off one, and was "man that would make a dog turd edible"! (haven't tried that but you know what I'm saying!) Well to justify it, I was buying a god gas grill about every 3-4 years due to the bottom rotting out of em and was spending 3-4 bills on it. Soooooo why not spend 6-8 years worth of grill $$$ and get one that is AWESOME and won't rot out!!!

Find a demo model or a divorce sale in the classifieds. Like Jason I was going through a gas grill and a smoker every 3-4 years. My BGE replaced both.
