Need opinions here...
I am egging 3-4 days a week since grabbing a medium off CL a few months ago. Pizza, a slew of butts, ribs, lots of chicken, burgers...just going nuts. I have a pretty sweet Sous Vide setup now too. You people are very willing egg-nablers.
My neighbor/friend who has been searching CL for a while and gave a standing offer to buy my medium, shows up yesterday with the newspaper ad for a local BGE dealer.
Local BGE dealer running special:
Buy medium for $650 and get a large
Buy a large for $860 and get an XL
We came to an arrangement...he buys my medium and nest and platesetter and grid for $450 and I buy a medium for $650 and get my large. I bought the medium on CL for $400 and bought the plate setter and a flimsy SS grid with swinging legs from ace for another $90 or so. I would have just said $400...but I will need to buy a large platesetter and I am putting another $35 nomex gasket on it today that I already bought. With that in mind, we are both pleased with the $450 price.
I had my custom table cut for a large when it was built last month. I knew all along that I was going to upgrade at some point.
I am heading over this afternoon to the dealer.
Is $650 a good price for a LBGE?
Should I go ahead with the large...or, buy the XL for $860??????????????????
I haven't had the heart to check the possibility of making the hole bigger in my table. I am pretty sure that the large will meet 100% of my needs.
However, you guys are great at spending other people's money...so I thought I would ask here to see if any large owners regretted their decision and wished they had bought the XL instead.
It is just me, wife and two kids for most cooks.
