It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Good price for a mini?

I am able to get a brand new mini with new hinge and handle for $200.

Is this a good buy?

    If it is brand new, that is a steal and I would go to whoever is offering you this price and offer him or her 250 to try and get it away from you ;) If that is brand new run, sprint, get in a muscle car and get that egg as quick as possible. :)

    I paid $250 and that was 2 price hikes ago.

    I think, and someone correct me if I am wrong, I believe MSRP right now is somewhere around 400-425 depending on location.

  • Holy cow! Glad I brought my midget home in 97-98...I could be wrong its been some time ago but I think it was 100 on sale. But then again the large was 500ish when I bought it in 97 too.

    Just wondering if you know what a small or medium is in the wonderful town of Maryville?

    Gentleman/ladies:

    I realize that this is off subject a little, but, my local GE dealer was selling the extra large GE (oval) for $1,300+ .. I found it in North Georgia for less than $900 .. it does pay to shop around ..

    Only accessory is the stand correct?

    This is why I am wondering, my buddy saved almost 200 dollars by going to Maryville Ks, a couple years ago on a large. Just wondering if the price difference is still so substantial now. ;)

    might mean the ash tool, as it is smaller

    BGE does not make an oval. That would be a Primo brand.

    Is it HOT? $200 is a "steal" so that's why I wonder! Is it for sale by a BGE dealer and is it in fact NEW?

    Grid gripper and ash tool are extra as well. I think that's it.

    I called around Birmingham a while back looking for a Mini and the going rate was $315, and that was before the price hike.

    I stopped in at a dealer about an hour north of Birmingham and bought their last one, with the metal cap - no stand - for $249. I felt like I got a good value.

    Sorry you're too late, I already bought it.

    SOOO,

    Would you spend $200 on a MINI or $440 on a MEDIUM if you already had a large?

  • ShedFarmShedFarm Posts: 499
    I'd spend $640, and get both. Oh yeah, I already did. :)
