Oddly, I bought mine from Best Buy online. I don't buy much, from Best Buy but they had a good price on it. But that was 2012.

Thanks, I'll look into that. One of the nice things about this Ducane, the grill racks are real stainless steel. No rusting, clean up easy.

Satire?

Often times, the spammers pose as PayPal and Pinterest, or any 'big name' that a lot of people sign up for, or think they might have. I get them from impostors once in while (they go to...

I just saw this post - I have that little compressor, and love it. I don't use it often, but it's so small, it's great for my air nailers.

I understand where you are coming from on this, but unfortunately, the "ridiculous," "excessive" do seem to be typical as well. I'm not sure that using the phrase 'typical' implies acceptability...
