    Paid $635 + tax for a LBGE in Georgia and got a $20 credit towards the purchase of a plate setter and pizza stone.

    @fourwinds you did very well. @biggreenpharmacist I really have called dealers until I am tired of it.There is nothing below $800 in Arkansas. I got a dealer to give me more for the money, but the price is the same

    Well I did buy mine in January and that very well may have affected the price. I guess if you put off buying one for few more months and then walk in there with CASH you might do better? I've got a friend in NWA thats pretty tight with a dealer. I'll see if I can check with him but heck it would cost a hundred bucks to drive up there.

    @Randy1 if you ever get down to the D/FW area, you can probably get a much better deal here similar to the one I got.  Not worth the trip for just that purpose, but if you happened to be here anyway.

    If money is a big issue and you want a ceramic cooker, you might want to check around. All the Eggcessories work in other kamados really well.
    I don't mean to open up a can of worms here, so if you need more info, I would be more than happy to help you. Private message works too.

    @Biggreenpharmacist I finally found a deal I am pretty pleased with.....still not $635+tax. @KennyLee It is a shame... I was just in DFW area. I didn't know then I was going to buy another egg. @StoicDude I appreciate it , but I better stick with BGE.

    Found this today. It's for a large with wings and nest. Never mind the paper, it's the most recent version of large with ss grate.

    Seriously, that's cheap, but you don't get the warranty.  However, you can take it back based on the Sam's policy. 

    I probably would have done that if they had them when we bought ours.  I could have bought two for the price of one (factoring in all the eggcessories).

    I agree. I think I would too. 2 for the price of 1 kind of has its own warranty.

    Well I'm glad for you. I would imagine around here the seasons dictate price. Glad you found one you're satisfied with.

  • Buy this one and drive to Tyler and pick it up. You could probably even register it since its new.

    I guess I'll mention for any other Georgians that I got mine for $635 at the Bargain Barn in Jasper GA. The $20 credit was because the store manager is on a local outdoors forum I'm on and saw my inquiries about a BGE. Also Reeves Hardware in Clayton Ga had them for around that price as well.

    Went to my local Sam's Club and they didn;t have any. Might be a regional thing.
