I hope these folks sleep well at night.

Your $$ went up Richard's nose!

Bought a Memphis Advantage on 6/15 through PGO. They charged my card the full amount immediately (same day). I was excited because I just knew my grill was on the way. No one charges your card until they can provide you with a tracking # and the unit leaves the door, right? Well, wrong! No tracking #. Finally spoke to Customer Service on 7/19 still no grill and no tracking #. He assured me that it was being shipped from MN and I would get a tracking # in a few days via email. By 7/29 still no tracking # and no grill and no response from PGO. By now they have been leveraging my money for 6 weeks. I surfed the web to find the manufacturer in MN that Brian had mentioned and I found them! I left a message which was promptly returned by the GM of Hearthland Products who supplies the Memphis Grill to dealers across the US including PGO.

Bob Borgerding

General Manager

Well, Bob could not have been kinder. He was a breath of fresh air! Bob sent me to work with another one of his dealers called Big Poppa Smokers. They placed my order and shipped out same day. They matched the PGO offer and they were just so kind. I got a complete refund from my credit card and the new grill is on the way.

I learned that the CEO of PGO was arrested for cocaine possession last week.

Well, all I lost was not enough to get him through happy hour if that is his drug of choice.

What a smug look on his face, having his mug plastered on the internet for the world to see is repayment enough for me.

I guess posting his photo here would be bad form.......

So, I will just leave it at this, after all, this is a food forum.

There are still good vendors out there doing great, honest, work on a daily basis.  Others take advantage.  I have always had good luck, you just have to keep requesting help. 

 

Glad to hear at least some good news.

This is the first time for me, never had anything like this happen before, guess that was why I was so slow to react.  I kept thinking, "they will ship it soon, I understand"

what I did not understand was he was shorting up the money I sent him, not making BBQ Pellets

FYI

 

This is from a good friend of mine in the Portland area who used to work for Traeger has had some dealings with PGO. The PGO owner was arrested on drug charges.

 

Deadwood biofuels BBQ pellets is out of business also. I have 100 lbs of their pellets and they suck in a pellet pooper, but work great in my AMZNPS

What a mess and rip off, so sorry to hear the bad deal. I think I'd be sending this new address to the BBB since the previous address for them was no longer valid. I just googled it and they have a new website: http://pelletgrilloutlet.com/home

The site also states they have a new and relaunched FB page https://www.facebook.com/pelletgrilloutlet?sk=app_2373072738

Their website says they have a new location in Portland-Towler's Market, which seems to be out of business and has a different address than the one on the website. There's a forum and everything on the new website. The worst part is they are still doing internet business and people can place orders-Apparently they have no shame!
