Default Big Green Egg Price question?

I know theres another thread going, sorry. But must know if price is good what was offered. Local gas company Has John Henry and Byron rubs with big tent going on in acksonvile. They offered to sell ther demo's from just this 2 day cook for XL= $800 L= $569. Now that is without the nest. Good price or not?

$799 without nest here... $999 for XL w/out nest.

So, yes, great deal, don't hesitate. I would buy 1 of each.

Sounds like a good deal on the Large, but not as good on the XL. What's included? At the various Eggfests they sell the demo Eggs and they usually include the nest. Here are prices from a recent Eggfest...

Demo Egg Prices:
XL/NEST - $829.00
L/NEST - $649.00
M/NEST - $479.00
S/NEST - $399.00
MINI/NEST - $239.00

But discount chances like these only come along so often... I think you'll be happy with which ever one you get. :)

You can find nests/tables on Craigslist for pretty good prices too...

That's the downside to a heavy, well insulated cooker along with the cost, weight issues.

Mighty fine cooker and sounds like those prices are very nice too.

Congatulations to myself HeHe! I am now the proud owner of one Large Big Green Egg. Total price with tax,nest, & egg was $692.47. I pick it up tomorrow after the demo. Thanks to all the brethren for the quick info and advice given. Much appreciated. Not to mention I bought $100 worth of rub. That John Henry pecan rub for chicken is to die for!

Congrats! Welcome to the club Egghead. Might as well put covers on any other grill or smoker you have. Except the largest gasser. You'll need a place to store your eggcessories.
