It looks really good, and Costco doesn't typically sell crap. GREAT price with tables, stand AND a cover. Wow.

Costco has an extremely good return policy. If it applied to this (there are some exceptions), I don't think you'd have anything to lose to at least try it.

I returned a gasser to Costco after 4 plus years of heavy use.

I saw the same kamado in a local Costco here in San Antonio. It's made by Vision grills. Their website is not very "encouraging". But if Costco will back it with a decent return policy, it could be worth it. I looked at it for a few minutes and it seems to be a nice build, compared to a horrible knockoff sold by Sams Club last year. If I didn't have two Bubba Kegs, I would be really tempted on this one. Put it this way, because it looks to be nicely put together (ceramics is a big ?) I'm telling my friends and family about it, especially cause Bubba/Big Steel Kegs are somewhat hard and are more $ now.

I expect to be able to buy parts for something I spent $1500 for. Take a deep breath there fella.

I agree. Dude, that's just not right. That's what drives up prices and makes good policies change. Saw a guy returning stuff at lowes. He had a mostly used can of PVC glue and an empty can of cleaner, plus a bunch of used fittings. Heck, If your gonna steal it just grab it and walk out. Some people just want to stick it too the company hahaha and then wonder what happends when prices go up or worse.

As far as this cooker, I'd just be looking to see if it is a name brand or a chinese knock-off. Looks good in the pic.
