Should you be checking other stores for this special price?
The short answer: no.
The longer answer: Yes, as fall approaches; BBQ equipment goes on sale as summer closes.
The really long answer:
This case was nearly unique. In Arizona rain is infrequent. Some Arizona companies get in the habit of storing boxes outside. When it does rain, the boxes get wet and start falling apart. The local Walmart will start opening the wet boxes and assemble the Grill/BBQ/Smoker units. This way, a soggy box is not a detractor to sales. However, some minimum wage employees are less than fully conscientious. Metal plates get dented, ceramic coatings get chipped, nuts and bolts get lost and parts get bolted on up-side-down. As such, the value is diminished. The local Walmart had a $99 sign in front of two assembled WSM-14.5 smokers. Considering all of the above factors, it was quite believable it was a special mark-down price. As it turned out, Walmart stated the price was a mistake, and not a reduction. They had intended to sell these smokers (with one of them missing nuts and bolts which secured the legs and chips in the ceramic) without a box, at the full $199 price. I convinced them to sell me one smoker at the shown price. I mixed and matched the parts to get a unit cobbled together in the best possible condition, and paid for it. Will this "special" be found at other Walmarts? Darn Unlikely.
