Some of you have answered my post about Kamado Joe and convinced me to keep to my initial plan of buying a Big Green Egg.
But now I am utterly frustrated. I stopped by the dealer on my way back home this morning, to order a large BGE. The nice clerk there told me he had one left in stock :woohoo:
But... he was wrong, and only had two medium. So when I asked him when they would be getting more, he told me they have STOPPED selling BGE! My dealer has gone for the pricing only, without any other thought, and decided to switch to KJ! So as of two days ago he no longer sells BGE! I just don't believe this. I was ready! I had my money! My car was ready for the crate!
I have found another dealer a bit farther, and what do you know? He has both: BGE and KJ, but gets into a sales pitch about KJ! What the... I presented my (your) arguments to him, and that sort of took him off balance. But you know what he says? That the founder of KJ is the ex-partner of Ed Fisher, founder of BGE. Oh, yeah? Well, I did some searching on the Web, and I found no mention whatsoever of this Bobby Brennan and of BGE.
So, I have a dealer who stops selling BGE, and another one who either lies to me or has been lied to and gobbled the lie or I just don't know how to google.
I am not frustrated, I am utterly p...
Sorry. I had to rant.
And now I'm looking for a third BGE dealer.
Edit: found a dealer! Yeah! They have a large in stock! :woohoo:
