And with the Gator you get the SS doors.
I don't pretend to know the costs associated with building these things but I don't understand why the Party line seems to have premium pricing over the Fatboy and Gator (when comparing comparably equipped cookers).
I asked about the price increase too. It has to do with the type of metal used on the skin. I wish I could remember what he called it but it has a lot longer life.
