Green Mountain Grills (GMG) in the UK - no supply?

Recommended Posts

Hi there - does anyone know whether it is possible to source Green Mountain Grills (GMG) in the UK?
 
I'm totally new at this so have spent some happy evenings researching, and GMG seems to be an excellent candidate at the more affordable/value end of things as Wifi is up there on my list as seems like a real advantage for the newcomer!
 
At the weekend there were two suppliers listed on the UK distributor site at https://www.greenmountaingrills.co.uk/ but neither had stock (of any model).  I checked in and BBQ Land came back to say that wasn't likely to be temporary (shout out for quick response - thanks).  Since then the site at https://www.greenmountaingrills.co.uk/ has been updated and now says 'This site no longer promotes Green Mountain Grills products in the UK' so it is looking like that door may have closed.
 
I contacted the U.S. to ask if withdrawing from the UK market but wondered if anyone had any inside info?
 
If not practical then I'll start a rethink on ideas for alternatives.
 
From what I've read the 2019 Traeger 575 could also fit the bill although more money, and there seems to be mixed reports on value w.r.t. build quality although I'm keen to hear from you fine people with real world experience rather than random Youtubers.  Finally I don't on principle like the tie-in to Traeger pellets re: warranty if I've understood that correctly.
 
Many thanks for reading

Thanks.  I did reach out to them as no stock (I think across the range) but no response yet... I'll use the more direct method of actually giving them a call tomorrow and will update.

Fingers crossed!

Awesome tip-off @valve90210

Situation on when/if new stock not clear, but spoke to John and have hopefully (for me) grabbed the last one of the 'refurb-units'... assuming it is cleared as OK as being run-through as we speak.

Fingers-crossed.

Thanks again - a great community

No worries buddy, managed to pick one up myself yesterday which is due to be delivered today :)

Congrats - mine (hopefully, time for positive thinking) is 'in the shop' so need to wait until next week... *drums fingers* *chews nails*

Well, they attempted delivery but now one home (which i knew) and seems no neighbours in today, so got to wait until monday now... I was hoping my neighbour might be in and I would be able to have a play over the weekend. :(

I think they had three last Thursday but @valve90210 had one, someone in for a repair grabbed a second unit for a relative, and my name is on the last one assuming it passes all their refurb activities... I was quoted £250 + delivery for mine

My Davy Crockett arrived yesterday and although i only had a very short amount of time yesterday evening, i gave it a quick test to see if it was working and all seems fine. I'm really looking forward to giving it a test and being able to leave it to do it's own thing while I crack on with my day. 

This evening I'm thinking i might buy a cheap chicken and smoked it just for something to do while i have a builder round!

I'm contemplating bringing it but wondered if it might not be in the spirit of the event what with being able to essentially hit go and leave it...😂

Go for it mate, there are no rules.  Load of people  put something on and leave it for hours and hours whilst is cooks lo and slo...and probably be some smartfire set ups there.

I'll certainly think about it, a bit more limited on space this year as I've changed my car. Also I'm not sure quite what I'm going to cook, so not sure what I'll want to bring. I really should put some thought into it...
