I am getting close to buying a Kamado style grill. I was absolute set on the BGE until I stumble into a local store looking for a fall deal on patio furniture when I see these SAFFIRE grills. Of course the salesman told me how the SAFFIRE is an upgraded version of the BGE because of the better quality parts being used. So I have searched the web and have not found a whole lot of reviews or experiences with the SAFFIRE grills. I found a couple threads on a different site, however, as best I can tell, the SAFFIRE grills have been out since around 2009. With so little info on the web I am wondering if that means anything? The purchase of the BGE is a big investment for me and I am willing to put in a couple hundred extra bucks for a SAFFIRE if the claims are true, such as surgical grade stainless steel hardware that is guaranteed for life to not rust unlike the painted steel on a BGE that will rust, etc... So how many SAFFIRE owners on this site and what are your experiences?
