my nephew has done " a little upgrade " end quote. he found a BGE on a craigs list kind of thing in the Liberty , mo. area. the unit has evrything u can put with the thing --for 500. A score? Seems to me it was , and hardly used. Now my 2 questions are as follows. He wants to sell his chargriller --propane on one side and wood/offset on the other for 125. Is that a good deal? and , CAN u use it as a stick burner? I can live with using charcoal w/ small slabs of wood. I have a source to get Oak at 100 per cord , and 50 a half cord for cherry. What do u think Brethren--he paid 299 for it and 69 for offset section!
