You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

    Bought the first 2 off of CL and paid 150 for a medium with a nest & 400 for large with a table. My wife bought me a new mini last year for 300 which we use 90% of the time.

  • First post!

    Just bought my Large Egg from a local dealer for $750.  I'll be building my own table - so only ordered the egg and a couple of egg-cessories.  Calling around saved me $100.

  • $950 Australian Dollars... and mine was a demo.  It was the last one Barbecues Galore had.  They were then discontinued.  Although I paid through the a$$ for it, I haven't regretted owning it for one second.

    MBGE(medium), $599+8.7% sales tax, Bellingham Washington. Same Egg in the GWN was $900+12%BC, HST. When I bought, 1 Loonie=1 Greenback. 

    If border services had charged me HST (no duty on eggs, they come from USA or Mexico all part of NAFTA) it would have been about $80 (12% of the tax in US price of $650) for a total of $730 - still some $280 less than Canadian price. 

    No wonder so many of my friends have Primos. 

    @peterp2 No I don't work, I'm retired, I have no idea what excuse all these other guys have.....

  • Nola, yep, I have arrived at the promised land - but I will warn you it's not always all it's cracked up to be, don't go wishing your life away. Ten years ago took a package when I was 52, the "company" bridged service so my pension did not take a hit. Along with our own investments, life is good.

    The last one I bought was for my business partner's daughter as a wedding gift. My butcher sells them and I offered him $1,100 for the egg, platesetter, pizza stone, nest and two bags of Maple Leaf. I told him another dealer would take the deal, which was true, and that I wasn't looking for a favour and didn't want him to do it if he didn't make anything. He said it was fine.
