Default Bandera - End of the line?

Brothers,

Noticing that the Bandera is no longer on the Charbroil website, I called charbroil today to see it they could tell me where I could buy a Bandera in NYC.

Steve, the guy on the phone said that "Home Depot and Academy still sells them."

"Still sells them?" I asked.

"They're no longer being manufacturered." says Steve.

I then asked when they stopped making them.

He backed off a bit and said that they were still available, but would not confirm or deny that they were still being made.

So is this the end of the line for the Bandera?

How much do you guys pay for one of these? I am thinking about making an offset that is insulated at an affordable price. I need your input to make this happen. It won't need any Mods. to make it work right.

Jay, they run anywhere from $170 to $300, dependant on where you buy them.

I've seen them to $500. Regardless - I'm interested in a larger scale 'Bandera' similar to the MOAB that Phil just sent back to Klose.

Better yet Jay. How much do you need to charge to at least make a little to pay for your time and materials? What would your asking price be?

I agree with Heath,I am very interested and would expect you to make a profit.I really like the Bandera and if you could make one thats insulated and available in colors like the ones you sell now you would have a winner.

I'm listening! Can the dimensions be dictated or does that fark up the price badly?

I certainly hope not. I had already decided that I am going to replace my dera with a Klose when it rides off into the sunset though....

Don't know - but the Charbroil website points to www.grilllovers.com for replacement parts. Their website only shows replacement parts for gas grills, but says that more parts are available by phone. Not a good sign IMHO

I'd suggest we all agree on one standard set of design specs.

Good idea. I vote for something like this.

There is nothing magic about the Bandera. I like it a lot but if I had to buy another pit I would look around and see what else is available. There are a lot of good smokers available in the market today. My Bandera currently has a broken hinge so I will use the old NBBD (whick I still love) on the next BBQ. I still have not decided how I am goingtofix the Bandera. I might take it to a welding shop or maybe drill andbolt a new hinge on the thing. I will probably wait till spring to get it fixed. The thing that I love about the Bandera is the nice grill in the fire box. That would be my only wish item for a Spicewine smoker. I really like to use the grill for searing meat. I fix lot of chuck roasts (super steaks) and I like to finish them off over the fire. I will also some times fix burgers on the firebox on evenings when I am planning to BBQ all night. As far as I am concerned all my brand loyalty was lost when Charbroil bought them out and shut down the plant in N.B., Tx.

Bandera's are $198 at the local Academy.

I think those propane bigots at Charbroil are making a mistake.
