With that said, I'm not sure if you're implying that BGE is made in China, they're not. How can you say it's better than the egg? (No offense OP). You get much more with the egg than the Menards cooker, things that are unseen and of great value, same with Primo.
Great looking grub man. That pizza is on point.
I was definitely wrong about China, the BGE is manufactured in Monterray Mexico. Not the China but not the USA either, closer though.
As far as true comparisons, I do not own one but it looks like you get lots of stuff with that Menard's egg and with the 500+ left over you can buy doubles of all the other stuff you are missing and some charcoal and meat to go along with it.
I am not prejudiced against the BGE but dang a deal is a deal and to me that is a deal!
