Pre Sale Question...XL!!

Hi, guys!  Yesterday was my birthday.  I'm thinking of upgrading to an XL for a present to myself!  
I bought a used Medium egg, and I've been learning on it.  I like it, still a newbie. I'm always having to "tweak" it....I put a new gasket on it last year, it doesn't have to screen on the lower air flow.
I mainly really just to have the "real estate" that an XL offers (ya know, my husband will  will buy a 40 pond turkey...then I have to squeeze it on my Med.)
Where is the best place to buy online and have it shipped to my house?

    There are no authorized online retailers. Find a local dealer and purchase it there.

    Welcome aboard! 

    As mentioned above, I doubt you'll find a BGE XL online. I think Kamado Joe sells online, though.

    And, if your husband brings home a 40lb turkey, tell him he has to cook it!

    Might help if you post your general location as well. 
    But I won’t be the one talking you out of buying the XL. Love mine.

    Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.
    Nothing to add to the above but congrats on enjoying the BGE and the realization of what the larger size brings to your cooking options.

    If it is a milestone birthday, and money is, therefore, not an object, I will gladly ship you an XL.

    Welcome aboard!  I hope you find a local dealer as great as the one I use!

    I live in Western Pa.  But I also am an Over The Road Trucker....so I'm rarely home!  lol  

    I do have my heart set on the XL.  There are a couple dealers in my home area.  I'll be home soon...

    I started with a medium and then a year later got a XL.  I highly recommend. I also recommend hanging onto the medium for smaller cooks.  It's the one I wok on.

    Rolliers in Mt Lebanon gives fantastic service, if you’re in the southwest part of the state. Good luck.

    I just went back and looked at your earlier posts to make sure we weren't going to get in a p*ssin contest with you, because your pearls in the center tray and your pink CB mike just JUMPED off that picture!  Happy XL cooks ahead for you and your family! You a long hauler?
