Not knocking the BGE, but I was able to find a "Large Avocado Kamodo" (that's not ripping off their name at all, is it?) at Menards, which is a local big box home improvement store in the Midwest. Same construction, far as I could tell, and the same insides. I was able to find it on clearance at the end of the year for $300, although I was "stalking" it in the store for 3 months prior. The thought of wheeling it behind a stack of doors came to mind when it was the last one.... Cooks and smokes well, and was a perfect addition to the outdoor kitchen I built over the last 2 years. Really wanted the BGE, but it was hard to justify the price. We won't speak of how much money I have "justified" for brewing....okay? Good luck!
