We were able to snag a Classic II for $999 via an Ace Hardware online order. If you join their rewards program, they'll assemble and deliver it for free (at participating stores). Looks like the sale is still going on.
The wife and I just picked up a new Kamado Joe Classic II from Ace Hardware last weekend. It's our first kamado grill and we're excited to explore cooking on it.
Looks like a great community here... lots of great info. Grill on!
