Our Costo offered them shortly after I picked up a BGE. The neighbor grabbed one. Apples to apples grilling we're similar. The addition of a plate setter and baking stone seem to give the edge to the BGE on flexibility but the price difference is significant. He also has some nice features I don't with out spending more money so It really depends what you're looking for in a grill. I'm happy with the BGE and he's happy with the Kamado.
