  • Re: Mini Max Price

    Sam's warranty may be better than the one from BGE. BGE will not refund your money; only replace the defective part. Sam's will allow you to return it and give a complete refund. There's no reason why a local dealer can't match the price of a MM for $474. There is still plenty of profit at that price point. Sam's is happy at that profit point. BGE is hurting their sales by limiting their sales to mom and pop businesses. As other ceramic manufactures allow the big retailers to sell their product in a competitive market, BGE turns a blind eye. BGE has 5x the number of dealers in my area over the past 10 years. They all sell for MSRP because they don't sell many. The dealers know that discounting is not in their best interest. They rather lose a sale and make it up when they sell an egg at full MSRP.

    I was in Sam's today and a new large was $890. 

    A large can be purchased for $699 in my area. Sam's is unable to compete unless they get a special buy.

    Exactly what I said.  Rockwood is excellent lump, unless you believe otherwise.  I only have 10 bags in the garage.  Gonna order more.  Get what you pay for.


    Just like I said; get over it. I don't care if you have 10 bags or a 100 bags.

    I tried a bag of Rockwood. Way, way over priced!!!!! You can live in your dream world and pay 2x for Rockwood but you'll never convince me its 2x as good.

    Mistake number one.
  • Re: What's wrong with briquettes?

    Rockwood is decent. But pound for pound, it does not compete with Royal Oak. Twice the price and burns much faster. Many here swear by it, but my wallet says RO. $24 for a bag of lump is crazy when RO is just a tick above $12. I bought 1 bag of Rockwood and leaned over when swiping my credit card so the cashier could easily apply the Vaseline to my rectum.
