haha that is good to hear. That's what I paid ($903.99 CAD to be exact) and have already been loving it! So long as it doesn't die on me right after the warranty runs out (2 years time?) I will be one happy camper.

The BSK/BKK carry a 10 year warranty!

The keg "seems overpriced" to someone that sees a strange looking charcoal grill that might be used several weekends a year in the summer to grill steaks.
Ribs? Ya buy them Pre-cooked at the store.
They also sell pulled pork ready made, what the heck would I do with a whole shoulder?
Look over there ! A nice shinny grill with five burners!
I'll check to see if the automatic starter works, can't deal with matches. Should I wait till after I buy this to get the rotisserie ? Heck I need the smoker tray.
Can add pecan flavor to the premade ribs, boy are my buddies gonna be impressed, it's bigger than Phil's. Plus I spent 1,889 on this on sale.

Can believe some poor sucker is gonna buy that keg and have to deal with messy charcoal. The thing don't even use brickets.  Yep a sucker is born every minute.

Hey there everyone,

     It appears that OMC is showing us some progress,and is trying to spread the word regarding the BKK.  I just did a google search to see if any new retailers would pop up, and the youtube video below did come up.

Has anyone else noticed the nice Keg accessories in that video?
Including the pizza pan with the same handle as the Keg dissuser.

Yeah, didn't OMC plan on coming out with several accessories that would make use of the handle? I think that was why they stopped including the handle with the diffuser, and selling it separately.

It's unfortunate that the video continues the myth of not filling the lump above the level of the air holes.

It looks like that site is for Canada only. At least, it is not complete, as the dealer locater, and country changing options are not yet working.

When I click on the link I get "Page not Found".  Is this page only available in Canada?

I am in Canada and cannot see it anywhere either. It seems OMC took the page down.

I just called the OMC customer service line to attempt to order the multi tool and the CI grate, and the rep told me that their ETA on getting the accessories for the new model grills is not until August 15th.  I read another post where someone was able to order the multi tool and CI grate, but OMC told me I have to wait till August.  Strange.....

He also did say that Home Depot and Ace Hardware will be selling the accessories, but probably not till September.  I found this information puzzling.

Anyway, if anyone out there has more information, or can shed some light on this, please do.

I also called OSH to check on the shipping and delivery status of my newly ordered BSK2000 (ordered Sunday, July 10th), and the rep told me I would be receiving an email today with that information. So anyone who ordered one from them, during the weekend sale, be expecting an email soon.

Try calling OMC back and ordering a replacement BubbaKeg or BigSteel Keg Grate and Multi tool, it doesn't have ot be for the new line (unless they are out of old stock accessories).

BBQBeaver,

     Thanks for the tip.  I will attempt to do that.  The rep asked which model I had, and I informed him I am waiting to receive the BSK2000, so he just went the route of telling me to wait till August.  So I will handle it like a replacement order.  Again, thanks for the tip.

I just spoke with OMC today, and was told that all the accessories should be in and available by 9/1/11.  So I was told to call back mid August to place my order.  Apparently they are out of multi tools, cast iron grill grate 2 tier sets, and even the covers are back ordered. 

Still hoping my new BSK2000 will get here early next week.
