Which website is best for BGE accessories?

I'm going to get my first Egg so I'm wondering which website sells the best for the accessories with most items at great prices? A friend suggested me Fred's Music and Barbecue Supply. I'm a generally a bargain shopper and I would rather to wait for items to get great price over getting it now from a local store at a higher price.

    I may be wrong, but I think any of the official BGE accessories are pretty much price fixed.  But, for add on equipment, there are several sites that are popular.  The Ceramic Grill Store sells many useful accessories, and for woks and utensils, The Wok Shop in San Francisco is great.  Call Mrs. Chan and tell her you are an Egghead.  You won't get a discount, but she'll love you.

    Fred's is a good place.  I have bought several things from him, like replacement gaskets.

    Thank you for the response, I'm just eager to get the Egg next week by checking out this wonderful forum to get the resources and information to fire up my egg in the best fashion as possible. I am looking to get a Large so I have a question about the spider: what size iron cast grate should I get to get it low to the grill to have the sear to my steaks? Is it fine with typical sized for a Large Egg? It is just something I have wondered about.

    The normal cast iron grate works great on the Large.  I bought one, used it a couple of times, and decided it was too much trouble to haul out for a steak.  It does look good, though.

    I would go with Fred'd like you said. I have been there several times and know him personally. They are the largest BGE stores in his area.

    Thanks everybody, I will check out the sites you suggested. I cannot wait to fire up my new LBGE to just have the increased possibilities with the menu planning with this forum's ideas.
