Homer Simpson 10th anniversary 22" Weber Grill, Act II
« on: October 04, 2014, 01:55:29 PM »
I shamefully admit to waffling on this purchase for about a week or so...then I saw argentflame's happy post and that was all I needed. Thankfully, it was listed as a Webber, so probably didn't get as many looks as it should have:

http://hartford.craigslist.org/app/4676018636.html

The rain let up enough for me to take these pics of it in the trunk. (Hell no I'm not gonna get it wet!)  :)

It has two major flaws on the lid- a ding and a bare spot. Otherwise, it's relatively clean.

It came w/ a non-hinge grate. Didn't they ship w/ the usual Gold hinged grate? No matter, I have an extra from a Target purchase.

Tomorrow I'll post assembled pics.

Got it for $50. Last pic is good representation of the color.

Love those Simpsons kettles
FWIW mine came with the non hinged grate, the same as yours
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

@charred  Yours is in much better shape than the one I'm picking up on Saturday!  The one I'm picking up has a fair amount of triangle rust.  That's my least favorite part of the clean-ups.
