98 POUNDS OF PELLETS??? I hope it has a Dump Feature. The Southern Coastal boys would have a HELLUVA mess to scrape out! It does look pretty sweet...JJ

Looks nice. Maybe Lowes will get an updated cabinet too, since I thought the Platinum line was exclusive to Walmart.

I’m getting the Brunswick tomorrow. I’m hoping there is no damage as I’m also reading folks have been getting them damaged by the shipping company Walmart uses. I will post my delivery outcome with pics

Sorting the reviews in inverse chronological order shows Walmart still has some bugs in their delivery system for this unit. So good luck!
I also note some complaints (which is on PB, not WM) that the design of the side handle is weak considering the bulk of the unit. Perhaps that's something you can add a couple fender washers to on the inside to distribute the load over a bit more sheet metal?
I'm interested in the details of what's on top of the crucible too...any flame deflectors, grease slides, etc. Pics will be appreciated!
