I have had to contact Pitt Boss for a minor chip to get touch up paint. All I was asked for was the purchase date and where I purchased my grill. I wasn't asked for the receipt.
The only advantage I can see with buying direct from Costco is the added benifit of their no quibble returns policy. Is that worth the extra $150 to you?
Ok, agreed. The second article mentions that, but I'm calling fake news on it. They're trying to restate Ju.es' instagram post so that it doesn't look like they copied the article from Thrilllist, who was then copied by USA Today and so it began. Jules only posted once. That's my take anyway. However, I have no doubt that the shell weighed that much. That is a CRAZY price for that size lobster. Something is up. Normally giant lobsters garner exorbitant prices. Did someone mention nuclear plants.
Man, I hope they start shipping some eastward...
