Agreed .... Get the large especially if you ha e a family of at least 4 ....as far as finding a dealer around here some lumber yards are selling them and also fireplace / gas propane types ... EnjoyGot to the web site and they have a dealer locator. I made the mistake of buying a medium. We thought it would be big enough for just the two of us.
They tried to talk us into a large but we didn't listen. OOPS.
We make it work but there is not enough room for sides. We also found out since the large is the popular size all the accessories are made for the large. If you decide to buy, get the large.
Glad you got a good dealI went on line to see what you guys were talking about. I can get a good newer used car for that kind of money. Alton Brown built one out of a large flower pot to cook a turkey in a few years back.
I picked up a used Aussie all stainless grill on craigs list for $3.00. The guy had purchased a new grill and was all apoloigic the Aussie did not have a propane tank. I had some. Best $3 i ever spent.
I don't have the "Egg" but I did buy one called the "Acorn" from Lowes, it is a look alike made from metal, insulated and works like the egg. I absolutely love the thing, the best steaks and burgers ever, you can control the temps easily and the foods tastes great. I smoked a huge pork tenderloin for the family over Christmas and it was fantastic. Took about 2 hours plus and I used hickory wood chips for the flavoring. Never going back to gas.....
The price of this version was about $260 with my vets discount.
