Craigslist Score, First WSM
« on: September 25, 2016, 11:48:57 AM »
Picked up my first weber smokey mountain this weekend. It is a 18.5, I had been watching it on Craigslist for a week and a half or so. The seller originally posted it for $100 and then lowered his asking price to $85 a week later after i am assuming little interest. He said he only used it a few times before he purchased a offset smoker. Been sitting for a while so i cleaned her all up and ordered a new cajun bandit door for it. I am busy on vacation for the next week but now I almost can't wait to get back so I can play with my new toy!



And a new family picture!



Will post cook pictures when i have time to fire her up.

Nice pickup. Run a few whole chickens through her, to season her up. She will run hot the first few cooks. Also, that's a nice lawn. She will kill the spot where your cooking.
Still need a 22 yellow

Had to include the gasser in the picture, it is the one that started my obsession after all. I got pretty good on the gas so i had to get a kettle to experiment with charcoal, and now I have gotten better with the kettle so I figured I needed the WSM to play with too. As far as cooking on the grass, I just set it there for the picture. We live in the middle of the desert, green grass is hard work so we won't do anything to mess it up.

Diggin the WSM.  Nice grab!!
Lets just say I have acquired a few Kettles.  Big and small.   Vintage and New...  Some say I have a problem.  I find the Kettle, buy the Kettle, USE the Kettle...No problem...

Congrat's on the "find".  I really like my 18.5" WSM.  Like yours, I don't have the heat shield either.  On my wooden deck I have to use a fiberglass mat heat shield.  Good price $85.

Dang, a $100 WSM listed in our area will sell the same day, if not in a few hours. Enjoy it.
