From that article, it sounds like they are gong to go through with it!!
But, it was introduced at a trade show and if they do not get enough positive responses from there dealers committing to buy them and stock them to sell, the whole project could be killed.
Just some info iv'e acquired over the years being in New Product Development.
Im thinking on call ing a BGE dealer today to see what they are saying about pricing and when we might see them on the market? Like shipping dates and stuff like that!!

This is what I found out.

The reps are saying it will go into production but nobody knows when or what the cost will be yet.

My personal opinion. There still trying to get a feel for how big the interest will be and this product could be killed at any time if they cant get the cost to a place where they feel they will make money Especially if they don't get the orders they hoped for.

BUT, they are pushing it as hard as they can in hope of drawing enough attention so they can pull the trigger.


We will just have to wait and see!!

I think it will go live, I just doubt they will make one that works as well as the large. Just seems to be the sweet spot for size.

This is what my dealer said also. He said it will probably be limited production this year. He said there probably gonna be hard to get at first. I'm thinking that bad boy in a cart is gonna be around 2000.

I would just like a BGE period.. My wife's cousin got really lucky and found one in his neighborhood yard sale for $150. The guy said he just didn't use it.

I highly doubt it. The Kamado Big Joe which is the same size as the Eggs XL version has more capacity than the Primo XL. I'd guess the Egg XL would have more capacity as well.

Awesome. I would love to own one, but 1500 for a large with nest and tablles is spendy enough.
