Default Target store BBQ clearance sale recon

It's getting to be that time again, Brethren, when good deals can be had at Target on Weber kettles and general BBQ accessories.

I know it's a little early but I figured I'd take a look-see at one of the 2 nearby stores.

As expected, nothing was marked down yet (last year's thread re: the sale was from Aug. 24th), but what was disappointing was that the overall BBQ merchandise stock was MUCH less than last year.

I'll check the other store soon and report back...I'm wondering if this may be a chain-wide thing due to better sales this year (doubt it) or less inventory to begin with, or maybe stuff is still in back, or maybe it's just the situation in that particular store. What...I should have asked someone?

Here's the thread from last year w/ the great deals scored and a link to the "secret" Target clearance-markdown policy:

hey take off eh!! Up here eh, garden sections are good.

Love target, I am close to Buffalo so we head there often. And I get that cheap water stuff in the USA that you sell as beer. Up here beer has alcohol in it.

Sorry, back to target, was at the ones in Orlando last week with no luck as well

SNAP!

That was funny right there. I don't care WHO you are. That was funny.

Always thought the name for our most popular, Buzzwater, was an oxymoron, myself.

Checked it out yesterday, They're selling the OTS for $80.xx

Not bad for someone looking to get one. Regular price is $120.xx up here in Canucksville.

Didn't have very much time to look at anything else. Going to go back on the weekend to see if they mark stuff down further.

last year, the target dropped the price of the OTS to 50 bucks. Wally world had it for 60. Either way, it was a good day.

Smokey Joe Jumbo 18 inch was $55.xx, regular was close to $80CDN.

Anyone done a smokey joe jumbo tall mod? It would almost be the same as the WSM!

At the Atlanta store on Sidney Marcus, they had two jumbo joes for $42 each. 18.5 grates were $5 off. Other discounts on knives, rib racks, etc.

FYI - Menards had a lot of grill/bbq accessories on clearance. Picked up 22.5" grates for less than $6.50 for my next UDS build.
