I am hoping to get one as well. Nothing fancy or big. Just a good size and reliable quality.

This was $199 a few months ago at the Oakville location.

Broil King (Mate) have another model that's $199, that is probably what you saw or maybe they had the signs mixed up. Also made in Canada though!

Hoping for a good deal on a Gas bbq this year!!
I think you guys are waiting too long. HD was clearing out their last year's models from like a month+ ago. When it gets warmer all the new/current models will be in and at full price for the season, with only minor sales.

Last month, I got a natural gas model Fiesta Blue Ember FG50069 (3 burner + rotisserie + side; w/grill light, ice bucket and bottle opener), last years model without the iQue (though I'm not sure if the NG model gets the iQue anyway) in the HD clearance for $399, reg $799.

Yeah I know it's not a Weber, but there were all kinds of other BBQs on clearance then too; I think that was the best time to buy a BBQ from now until fall. I mean there might be deals in between to be had but it seems prior-to and after the season is the best time to buy.

As evidenced by the post by shawno20 even the "deal" on this thread was better a month or two a go.

Broil-Mates are made in China, only the Kings are made in Canada I think. I checked a couple Broil-Mates when I was in HD and they were MIC[hina].

Unfortunately for BBQs you typically have to spend a lot to get one that's made domestic these days. Even Vermont Castings "went China" a couple years ago (and now they've still gone bankrupt, lol). Other makers are following suit if they haven't already, particularly with lower end models.
