    Bge is in first by a wide margin. KJ is in 2nd by a wide margin. 
    He's a former kj employee. Probably something behind his comment 
    I just bet that 2 and 3 are vastly closer than 1 and 2. 
     I don't know.  I've visited hundreds of retailers and dealers of all brands throughout the country. You just don't see many Primo dealers anywhere and even fewer Grill Dome dealers. Most (not all) dealers realize its become a 2 horse race. I mean just look at this board. There are constantly new threads comparing the egg to KJ, but I can't remember the last thread centered around Primo, Grill Dome, etc. For the most part, BGE dominates the independent retailer channel, but with KJ partnering with the larger regional and national chains, the difference in the number of grills sold per year is sure to close.  And again, I no longer have any skin in the game, just sharing what info I have and what I've seen around the country.

    I'm not interested in getting into a pissing match over who knows what. If you don't think I know what I'm talking about then so be it. 
  • Re: Costco Brisket Question

    in KC we have flats and packers at Costco, the flats only are priced at about the price you paid, while the packers are more in the $2.50/lb range.  My guess is you have a flat.
  • Re: HEB please say it ain't so

    No idea what it is, but it's not Kamado Joe.

    I've used Mangrates for a couple years now, since my pre-egg days.  I don't have a cast iron grid so I use them when making steaks.  They do leave better sear marks and protect from flare ups as others have said.  I like them, but they are probably a little over priced for what you get out of them.
    Over priced? i dont think so, it makes a HUGE difference to me without a doubt, About them being over priced, they have us/EGGERS taken care of with our own promo code of EGG.
    Happy grilling...
    You can claim you don't work for mangrate all you want, but I don't believe you for a second.
