Congrats!! Did your Costco have the medium or large?
I bought the Medium today at Costco. It's to supplement my LBGE, with extra cooking space.
So now I can do all my Ribs on the Large, and a Briskett at the same time on the Medium.
@Flamethrower. The exact same person posted it on both forums.
Well, to each their own. I won't critize anyone if they find a bargain - saving a dollar is saving a dollar.
That said - I bought from an authorized dealer - and glad I did. Had an issue with the cap and the top dome - had spots that were where the outer layer had chipped off.
Talked to the dealer - they said it was warranty - after some discussion I agreed that I would be happy wiht the a new "cap" and some touch up paint for the Dome. Went by this past weekend, to pick up the new cap - they had also shipped me a top half of the dome.
Now granted - "IF" I had bought at costco - and they refunded my money - I guess I could have torn everything apart - returned it - got my money - then gone and bought a new one....
But for me - I would rather stay in the authorized dealer network given the quality of warranty support. Not saying the same applies to everyone - just my observation.
The day BGE started to put on ties in the office we ventured into a new world. It's the ties damnit.....
At Costco today MBGE $579.00. The demo was jacked up. The bottom vent was in the back and the hinge set up appeared to be wrong. The band cinch bolts were not in in between the hinge and had only 1 spring. Minor fixes,But it was still a BGE

I bought a Movado watch from Costco and inside the box was a note that stated any and all warranty claims should go through the Costco warranty department. I haven't, unfortunately, found an egg near me but I wonder if it may have a similar notice.
if i could justify a second egg, i would pick up a medium from costco. but i sure wish we had egg fests in Michigan!
Sorry cazzy. I meant that the person that started one of the threads "over there" also started/posted the same thing here. I got my costco threads mixed up.
OTOH, I'm of the opinion that BGE should suck it up and stand behind their product. If Costco's all over the place have these, some distributor must have just ordered many truck loads of MBGEs. I don't see how BGE can plausibly claim that they didn't know they were destined for a "big box" store. Who else orders that many at a time?
