Black stone. Where to buy in Michigan?

gmacgmac Posts: 1,809
Im hoping one of my Michigan Egg friends will be able to help me out. 
I have to go to Mason Michigan tomorrow for some meeting and I'm thinking of stopping somewhere and getting myself a late birthday present. But I don't know where to go for a black stone grill. I will cross at Port Huron and be headed through Flint and down to Okemos for the night. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am sure they are easy to find but I don't have a clue where to look beyond Wal-mart. 

Thanks guys.

    @Fred19Flintstone is over that way. 

    I just noticed that my ace hardware has them.  

    They are really everywhere.  Dicks sporting goods, Walmart,  cabelas,  I am on the west side of the state, but I think if I set out just to buy one, I could be out and back in 25-40 minutes.

    Thanks @kl8ton I was meaning to tag @Fred19Flintstone and forgot so I appreciate it. I figured most places would likely have them. We don't have them across the border so I think this is the best option to grab one.

    I know you don't.  I went to bbq galore or something like that in North Burlington. $450 or $550 for something similar!

    I just stock checked the Walmart in Grand Blanc, MI for you.  They have a 36" in stock for $247.  They didn't have a 28".  I wish I could meet you for a beer, but I'm at deadline at work and don't have time to scratch my watch or wind my a$$.

  • Oh, I just checked the Burton Walmart and they show one.  The Burton Walmart is right off I-69 at the Belsay Road exit.

    247 is a good price.

    Wal-Mart is about the best place these days. They're having some agreement with them lately.

    Thanks a lot. That sounds like a pretty good price, even with the exchange. I am headed over this afternoon so I will check it out.

    You should probably buy as many as you can carry and sell them once across the border!

    I hate to admit it……but Wal-Mart is your best option.   Especially this time of year

    I agree on the "hate to admit it" part.  You may wish to shower after you get out of there.  My Ace hardware pricing on the 17" was the same as everywhere else.  ($75 or $79 I think).

    Well, I hope so because I just stopped at the Burton Wal-Mart. They had a few. It appears to be Wal-Marts policy to kick the **** out of them before they put them on the rack. 

    And now there is one less on the shelf because it's now in the back of my truck. 
    Thanks @Fred19Flintstone and everyone for the advice.

    When they ask if I have anything to declare I tell them I bought a BBQ. That's about it. Depends on how long I've been in the US and how much I spent. Not usually an issue.

    I would bring a new 36" Blackstone to you if you put my weight in Maple Leaf lump in my van.  Don't worry, I'm not much bigger than @Little Steven.

    Thanks, that's really kind of you, but I wouldn't want to impose on you.  I'm also way over my quota for new toys this year!

    If you decide to do this, get a big truck. Just picked up some MLL for fall (it gets harder to find in December).  
    Here's 70 lbs worth. I think @Fred19Flintstone is at least double this.
