Well i am new to the site and new to the egg in general, i am a bbq cook for a few years now at a restaraunt and in an old fridge in my back yard. Finally convinced the wife to let me splurge on an egg, (also debated on the primo xl) but want either a large or xl egg. Had a couple priced to me new at 699 for the large or 949 for the xl. Are these good deals and is there any way the dealers would go cheaper based on your experiences. They are the last years mpdel not the new stainless models but would it be worth the extra price to get the new model would be 799 for large or 1099 for xl. I am in Va near Bristol.
