That cost is what the Ace Hardware Store has to pay for the Keg.
So if they sell the Keg for $613 they only make $100 profit.
It's more like a bench mark, cause sometimes they are popping up below cost.

The Ace Outlet was selling them for $599 with free shipping to the store.
(I think)
here is the link...

Ok thanks.  I called my local Ace stores and they want $679.  I checked the link that you had and they don't offer free shipping to the store.  I am currently trying to decide between the BSK and BGE.  I am leaning more towards the Big Steel Keg.  I can get a large BGE for $900 with stand and side tables and the BSK for $679.  Thanks for your help.

Even though the Keg is still $220 cheaper, you also get a 2 tier cooking grate, the ability to hitch it and travel and 2 beer openers with it, all additional pluses.

So... I've got some money burning a hole in my pocket and I can't seem to find a place to buy a BSK.  Anybody know of a place to get one right now?

Check your local ace hardwares.  They seem to be the last places to have any remaining stock left from last year.

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

I've exhausted any local places I could think of.  Home Depot, Ace, True Value, etc. It looks like I could get a BSK2000 delivered but I really want to shoot for a BSK4000 if I'm going to take the plunge.  Oh well.

As far as those model number I dont think they are out yet.  Any stock you find now will be left over from last year.

I just spoke with my buddy at an Ace Store
Cost is 513
Retail is 679

I bought mine at Ace Hardware for $599 and at the time I asked if he could get me a better price. Owner went and looked it up and came back saying sorry. My profit margin on that item is pretty low, and wasn't willing to come down. Oh well doesn't hurt to ask.
Still very happy with my purchase.

Your local Ace may not have it in stock
They may have to order from the distribution center

When I ordered mine a week ago there were three left in Sacto

Either you buy now or wait to see what OMC comes up with and when they come up with product Sad
I think this may be the last chance to get something in two months
Just a personal opinion

I decided not to wait
Decided to go with "the bird in hand"

At 900 for a large egg with table and stand I would say it  might be a tie for me
I migth of had gotten one had I known

The egg has a better warranty
But I think you may need to buy a other stuff
Around here they go for $1200 equipped and that is without cast iron grate. At 1200 for the BGE the BSK hands down is a better value.

No problem getting them at my local Ace, which was not the case a couple months ago.

I stopped by my local bbq store last weekend.  They haven't heard a word from OMC and have no idea when to expect more BSKs (were originally told May after the buyout).  They have been out of stock and unable to get more since the beginning of the year.  In the meantime, they have started carrying Primo and Kamado Joe.  Hopefully they don't give up and stop carrying the BSK. 

I'm still leaning towards a BSK because of the portability and durability, but I'm not going to wait on OMC forever.  I know I could probably find one at Ace right now, but I'm not spending this kind of money until I know for sure that there is a company standing behind the product.  Hope something happens soon.
