QUESTION - Would you buy a used, medium (4 years old) for $450?

No accessories besides standard equipment. Have an option to do so today. I own a large but thinking of adding a second.

Thanks for the feedback. JW


  • No. If you're into it for $450, why not spend a couple hundred more and have a warranty to lean on? My 2¢.


    Flint, Michigan.  If the lead bullets don't kill you, the leaded water will.

    Unless you are in Canada, I agree with Fred

  • I wouldn't either, but I'd look at it and if it was ok offer them $200.  Worst they'll do is say no.

    Damascus, VA.  Friendliest town on the Appalachian Trail.

    Nope.   But I do like the idea of offerring 200 - at 3, I might start thinking about it.

    Maybe if you can talk them down to $300 or less.

    I also agree with Fred, otherwise.

    I got my medium used from a buddy for $300. That included the plate setter and a stainless steel cart that was modified to fit the egg in.

    Not a single yes vote. I guess that settles it. Thanks, JW

    Just saw a MBGE, 2 years old, with nest, mates and setter, two grids and a High-Q, was very new. Asking was $450 and I thought that was too much. $350 tops.
