Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

Been researching the Med BGE, I'm getting really excited about it.  I called a local dealer (in Huntsville AL). Nice folks, the Medium BGE will cost $850, the Large BGE is $1050 (I think).  Wow, I didn't realize it would be that high. Does that sound reasonable? Your thoughts ...

    That $850 should come with a nest and side tables, if I'm not mistaken.

    Go to an EggFest. You will find Larges around $750 with nest and some have plate setters.

  • I don't know about Huntsville but in Dothan, just the LBGE is $829 (no extras).  Same in Panama City, FL.  

    I bought mine in Pensacola, LBGE: $629 w/ table $398.  I think I'd advise you to seek a better deal or either take a beach vacation and come back with an Egg!

    Up here in Chicago where everything seems to be expensive, I got my Large with nest and shelves for $993. I think you can find a better deal. Good luck.

  • I googled best price for LBGE about a year ago.  I got a large w/nest and tools for $799 at a hardware store about 40 miles from me.  (Georgia)  Needless to say I was the 1 customer of the day,  The owner said he bought in very large quantity and it was 1st come, 1 serve until they were gone.

    I got mine in Central Florida.  Got the Large first at an ACE Hardware, with nest and wings it was $850.  Got the Extra Large at a butcher shop, with nest, wings, and $50 of meat for $1,000.

    The Ace has gone up quite a bit, but the butcher still has the same deal, and for the Large it's $800.

    Just called Costco, they don't carry any BGEs. But that would be cool if they did.

    i got mine slightly north of you in chattanooga. It's a medium bought it naked (no nest, no mates, no nonsense) for 595. i went to the nearest pawn shop and bought a circular saw and drill ($48 total) went to lowes and spent $70 on wood and screws. printed off the table plans from bge website. the table is about as easy as legos, it's as simple as they come. Total: 713

    egg fests are great ways to pick up cheaper eggs but don't forget that gas factor in getting there.

    This is the same price as Ace Hardware and Bart Fireside which are the only two dealers in Columbia, SC. I bought mine in ATL for a way better deal.
