I bought mine in April after seeking one for over a year. I think they are only going to stock seasonally. I get that some areas have a year round season but I think Walmart would stock based on what they can move nationally. Also there would be a cost factor for them on what they negotiate with Pit Boss, cost of the stock sitting on shelves for XX days, etc. However, I'm not even seeing it listed as an out of stock item on Walmart's website so that is not a good sign.
