Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

So $399 for mini is pre-price increase?

    Talked out of the mini yet? I'm sure we can get plenty non bge owners to post how crazy a $1k bge is. Bottom line its fun and adds value if you use it, use ours 3-4days a week. A few inches here and there of grid space does not add much. I could have been talked out of it to if I read mini posts before hand, glad I didn't and followed what posters like mickey and others stated and showed with the product.

    you could get a smokey joe, the other forem thinks they are as good if not better then a mini.
  • Wow 399 for a mini? I only paid $510 for a large. That is with a corporate discount though. I couldn't imagine paying 400 dollars for a mini.

    That is nothing of what they said. A couple of people talked up the Joe. If you bring up the  "other forum" please stay with the facts. Thank you and welcome to this forum. I do not remember seeing you post on the "other forum".  Welcome to this one.

    You would not pay $400 with a corporate discount.

    Well its kinda strange how my discount worked. They can only get one per lifetime. Also you could only buy a large. Although there are dealers where I live that sell the large for $630. $399 is a little high to me for a mini.

    I petition for a sticky thread for people to call out (complain) about the mini and its pricing.
    I was being sarcastic on the smokey Joe agreement.

  • $375 in Toronto Canada was thinking of selling the gasser and getting a mini or a small

    @SkinnyV, hell, most of the time I don't even see the printed paper, 99% of the time it's just numbers on a computer screen.

    I personally would have to look and find a deal on a small. If it were just my wife and I then I would search and find a deal on a mini. 399 to me is a little steep. To each their own though.

    If you don't want to pay 400 for a grill then don't buy it bud.

    Are you smoking something. Now your saying its just paper...

    I highly suggest being friends with a dealer (or marrying somebody who is). my wife has been best friends with ours for 17 years. Its nice getting the family discount. I would not have paid over $300 (and the wife would not have let me). That being said, we love ours. Bout to fire it up in fact.

    Thank you. You are right in that we all can learn from both forums. Just at times something is said and sets up a battle, thanks for setting it right. Where are you? I am in the middle of Texas.
