Nope. All of the BGE stuff is gone.

I heard the KJ rep that was there telling someone that BGE hasn't made any improvements in the technology blah blah blah. I mean, how much technology is needed.

Well they just lost my business. 

KJ is a good grille but I love my BGE and will be sticking to that.

We were just in that store a few weeks ago. I wanted to buy one of those BGE but, since its not American made I didn't get one.

Looking at the Primo's now.

Wow. Thatís really a big change for them. 

Shoot, they just changed from being a general hardware store to a full blown BGE store.  Kinda weird

When we moved to Roswell in 2002, I went by their store a couple of times. They were rude and acted like they didn't care if you bought anything. I wondered how they stayed in business. Someone told me they had the contract for the City of Roswell for hardware and landscaping equipment. Then the old man retired and the sons took over. Things got better. Then they brought in BGE and they started getting a lot more customers. They remodeled and it was a nice store. They got rid of old stock that had to be on the shelves for 20+ years. Then they expanded BGE to 3/4 of the store and got rid of Stihl. My guess is the City of Roswell awarded the contract for a better deal and they had to find another money maker. Since they were already mostly grills, they went full grill and changed the name. KJ probably saw what they did with BGE and gave them a better deal.  Glad they're doing well. You couldn't get in the parking lot yesterday.

Very short sighted to me.  I think they will lose a ton of business.  BGE artificially keeps competition down whereas I can probably get a better KJ deal at Costco.

Is the KJ vs BGE thing like Islam vs Judism?  It seems that way, but I just don't know.

Neither KJ or BGE are made in the US.  BGE is made in Mexico though and I'd rather have that than China.  Primo is US made.

BGE is like Jeep.  Its the standard and everyone makes stuff for it.  KJ classic can take some of the same stuff but it's kinda like an FJ.  Primo is like a Toyota.  Very little of the BGE stuff is going to cross over to work on Primos.

Interesting that all 3 are headquartered near Atlanta.  BGE & Primo in Tucker.  KJ in Duluth.

The author of that video does not sell BGE but does sell KJ and Primo.  Not saying it's wrong... just saying it may be pointing out what they want.  I like the KJ but BGE is the standard.
