Is $325 a good price on a mini?

    Thanks! I going to buy it tomorrow. Then add another Large in Oct
  • Hey Rub. Not sure where you found it but the dealer over in Gastonia has been really good to work with. Carol Ann Furniture, they might beat $325.

    Never knew they sold eggs! I bought some lump and eggceasories from Reliable Appliance in Gastonia but did not know of them. There is a new dealer I town though and he has set up shop at the south fork river bridge between Belmont and Cramerton at the bottom of the hill just before burger king.... He has a nice variety of rubs, lump and wood chunks too
  • I'll give that new guy a new guy a shot too, wasn't aware of an egg shop that close to Belmont.

    I wasn't either until I rode by today and saw a BGE banner and several eggs on the side of the rode. I slammed on brakes and turned around. The two guys there said they cook on theirs every night much like I try to do.
  • Well it sounds like we need to setup a South Fork eggfest.

    Check to make sure what version of the mini you get for $325. The new version has the solid wood handle and a heavy, two-sided hinge. I opted to spend $400 for the new version vs. $345 for the old. Everything seemed just so much more solid.

    I was looking into a Mini, or Small this weekend.  My local shop quoted me $399 (canadian) for a Mini - Small was $599 I think - not 100% sure.

    $391 here in seattle, cooking on It 3-4 nights a week since I got it. I can't imagine the amount of lump used on the larger ones, still on my first bge lump bag after 2 months but its just about done.

  • Someone around here has a brand new mini for $275 obo. Trying to decide if it's worth it for tailgating. Would like one with the warranty. Also not sure if I wouldn't prefer a small...

    Worth the 400$+ I paid, fwiw. Fun cooking toy that is my family's primary.
