T-Bone since your price is Can. I'm not sure how this compares, plus you don't mention what size Egg the price is for. I just checked prices last week at Egg dealer close to here, supposed to be one of the top dealers, and the XL BGE was $1069 and the Large was $699.
The BGE is not necessarily small. It just depends on the size you have as there are 5 or 6 sizes. The XL is a 24" diameter cooking grate, so you're looking at 4-6 pork butts, a couple good sized briskets, chuck rolls, and a pretty good capacity.
