The reason I ask is that after Labor Day, they are going on sale for 50% off I have been told. I might get me one for the backyard.. Please help me out folks..

Looks like they took this one and gussied it up. For half price it should be worth it.

Guess that means you're not interested in a discounted Primo??

Comments here are favorable, as far as I read. I was guessing it might be flimsy, but one testimonial says it's not.

Two issues just from the photo; 1) the exhaust is near the top of the cooking chamber it should be near grate level; 2) the thermometers are on top of the cooking chamber they too, should be at or near grate level.

Bruce, why do so many BBQ pits have the exhaust like that? I can see the temp gauges being moved ok..

I really don't know the answer to that. It is a design flaw though.

Well glad you jumped to my defense here. The mean spirited intolerant liberals can sometimes make us old middle of the road liberatarians feel like we aint quite kosher on the PC question if you get my drift..wink wink. Now moving on to mo impotent matters..had the sorriest plate of Carne Gusida which ever been birthed over on the N. Side of Foat Wuth just today. Still burping a bit as we speak. Praise the Lord for Papaya and other digestive enzymes. It had tates in it..Whuts that all about? Taste like it was cooked in sauce that be good on pulled pork. The flour Taurpolians was fresh from the bag..and then is disspated into corn torts as the stack diminished. I'm still purty hot over this deal. The boy who owned the place was obviously some kind of gringo. Arizola's was the name of it. That sounds a little Eyetalinia to me. Now the senoritas was mighty purty and looked like they do a booming bar bizness when it get close to quitting time. Whut is a mother to do? Thanks.
