I have decided to buy a large egg. The forum has been a huge help in reaching the decision, particularly seeing how easy it will be to get guidance.
Along those lines, how important is it to have a "good" distributor? We have a couple of local places that sell the egg, but none keep items in stock nor is the egg a primary product for them. I would have liked to find a place that had accessories I could see and people I could learn from. Also, they don't seem to do any package deals (but maybe it is because I have never been good at bargaining).
The closest I can come locally is a "home goods" store that mostly sells yard care stuff, some gourmet food and cookware etc. It is a strange mix, but they are nice people who seem to focus on quality. They demo cook on the egg a few times a year, but it is not a BBQ based place. Should I look further from home? Or just get it locally and rely on you guys for all of the extra knowledge?
I am in Ann Arbor, MI in case anyone has a distributor in the general area they like.
