Default prices

I was getting prices on parts for a UDS at a local building supply store, a 22" webber grill $40 and a grate $23 plus $15-20 for shipping or I could buy a new complete one for $129.99 and have a dome cover. Also seen the big Green Egg for the first time, Mini $399 on sale, Med $1241 and a large $1400 never asked what they wanted for the extra Lg. I can say I'll never have one at those prices!!

Comparing a Weber 22" to a Ceramic Grill is not apples to apples. $1400 seems kind of high for a Large BGE though. It really comes down to what you are going to use it for whether you can justify the cost of ceramic. I have a Primo, not BGE, but I can put on a Pork Shoulder, set my temperature and never have to open the grill until my digital thermometer goes off. My last shoulder took 14.5 hours at 250 degrees and I used less than 4lbs of lump charcoal.

I paid the same for my Large and Small BGE. He is from Canada. They think we are rich up here. I live near Toronto and prices are the same. I did get them to throw in the plate setter for both. At that price I figured they owed me something.

No ACE hardware, No Target & craigs list not big, people use kijiji & I have been checking. Only 2 places in the city that sell Green Eggs. Most people give you a funny look when you ask if the have Big Green Eggs.

I was in Menards today, and they had 22" grates for 8.99, endless supply. I keep waiting for them to go on clearance, but no luck as of yet. I built my drum for less than 40, of course the drum was free.
