Where to buy a BBQ grill off-season?

Does anyone have an idea of where I could buy a charcoal grill in the middle of January??

Why bother buying a grill, buying meat is like buying gold anyway!!!!!!!
Unless if you are planning to grill carrots.

Otherwise you can have mine for FREE because each time I go looking for something in the Migro to grill, I come back with nothing.My fiancee is happy to have her carrots though

That's not a BBQ; it's a gas grill. Which isn't a BBQ. Gas grills belong in a kitchen. It's a funny gas grill, though, eh? But not a BBQ.

Indeed,

There are some specialised shops around (bolts and nuts type of shops) and if you go to Alsace or Germany you will find them.

Just over the border in Jestetten, Germany (30 mins from Zurich).

http://thosa-trade.com/index.php

Wholesaler of all kinds of popular BBQ brands plus accessories, sauces, etc. They also have a shop at their huge warehouse for consumers. A lot cheaper than buying in Switzerland, be sure to claim your VAT back. Bought my Weber there.

You can take the girl out of America, but not the American out of the girl....grilling is a part of my life, even if the overpriced meat here is just terrible. Veggies are also good, although I must admit I never grilled carrots!

Think of them as crunchy hot dogs. Mind over matter.

I was at the Bauhaus in Schlieren (Zürich) yesterday afternoon and noticed that they have a rather large selection in the back.

Might be worth it to check it out...

What about http://www.gonser.ch/haus-garten/garten/bbq-grills/ ? There one can order BBQ grills no matter if its off-season.

I've got the BBQ Gasgrill 4+1 Brenner. For me it is the perfect BBQ grill Everything is delicious.
