Bayou Classic Depot seems to have a corner on the propane burner/accessories market. There are several online stores that Do Right Services seems to be behind, as well as apparently being a major supplier to the industry in general. My experience with them has not been positive, but I am willing to admit that I may be the exception rather than the rule. I am sure there are many satisfied customers out there, but sadly, I am not one of them.
Please know that I have no affiliation with any company in this line of products. One of my pet peeves, one of the things that irk me the most, is when an online company sells you a product that they currently do not have in stock, and then not notify you so that you have the option to find your product elsewhere. Maybe I am one of those unfortunate few that fell through the cracks, but I still have yet to hear from Bayou Classic after placing an order with them on July 15, 2009. To their credit, they have not billed me for this item, a needle valve, but I have since demanded that they cancel my order.
I placed an order for the same item with King Kooker/Metal Fusion, Inc. yesterday, and they have already notified me that my item has shipped, and supplied me with a tracking number so that I can anticipate it's arrival. That is the kind of customer service that I expect and that I deserve. Maybe my order is too small for a big company like BCD to pay attention to, I dunno. Whatever the reason, it will be a long while before I buy anything from BCD. Hopefully, YMMV.
King Kooker is apparently a reseller, and there was about a 30% upcharge (including shipping) over what BCD was selling the same item for, so the bottom line is that you pays your money and you takes your choice. To me, a bird (or a needle valve) in the hand is worth two in the bush (or silently backordered).
