    thats a pretty nice looking grill

  • I get the trade magazines and there are new ones all the time ... most if not all are chinese made etc. We tested a couple assorted ones they seemed to work ok but why bother when there is such a great product, with a great warranty etc. etc. for "around" the same price.

    The Unique Smokin' Chip Feeder is pretty neat.. although I'm sure that feature will get chastised.
    context is important :)

    ive cracked eggs before, that would be another potential area for cracking, especially since its hotter there than the vent area, but for someone that just wants to do low and slows thats a great feature

    I watched your video and really liked the pizza oven. -RP

  • While the knock offs don't meet the quality standards, they do provide one positive...some unique thinking outside the box. Like the Bubba Keg having notches on the daisy wheel to remmber settings, etc. I think at some point it would be nice of BGE to look at some of those innovations and see how they can incorporate into the egg.

  • That looks like a really nice ceramic cooker, but with casters that small, a lot of them are going to go to pieces the Humpty-Dumpty way. The warranty's pretty decent compared to some of the other knock-offs if it's honored properly, but we all know how warranty service can go.

    "Warranty Summary
    All ceramic parts that fail to operate properly due to manufacturing defects will be replaced free of charge for 20 years. All stainless steel parts are covered for 10 years.

    Any part of the grill that gets broken for any reason, including operator error and accidents, will be provided at half price for the lifetime of the grill to the original owner.

    Shipping charges are not covered by the warranty."

  • That's the first thing I noticed too, the tiny casters. BGE went to a larger diameter wheel on their nests and those look smaller than the original ones BGE used.

    maybe they could send me one to test. there is alot of nice upgrades on it, stainless grid, daisy, bands
    ·
  • I did a little quick internet pricing. The thing looks comparable to a BGE Large, but is quite a bit pricier. It seems you're going to pay for those nice upgrades...

    There is one on ebay for $1030 and includes free shipping. -RP

    Wonder bow much that'd be without free shipping

    This is another one that is one CL here in Raleigh, aside from that MarkB's. It even calls it at BGE alternative.

    "is designed and built to provides you with 20-30 years of cooking pleasure."


    interesting.

    Looks like the answer for those guys who want a Red and Black cooker. Reminds me of the Hertz commercial - "Is it a BGE? Not exactly."
