Finally Scored an SSP
« on: August 18, 2022, 02:07:10 PM »
As the title says…. Purchased this from a super nice guy in Canton, GA.  We could have talked kettles for hours but I had to scoot.  No tank, but I would upgrade it anyway.  Other than my anniversary kettle this is my only green one.  DA code, 2001 with a standard ash assembly - not the older hard to fix style.

Congrats!   Nice [emoji172].  The SSP may not be the best workflow of all of the generations of performer but it is the best looking to me.  I love mine.

Thanks Michael.  I’ve been looking for a later model that had a solid frame and decent kettle and this fit the bill.  Not sure how much use it will get with the Summit sitting over there cocked and ready, but I’ll definitely get it in the rotation.  Seller lowered the price and I offered a little lower and he accepted.  Fair price and we are both happy.  He said he knows of the club and has more Webers that he and his father in law cook on so maybe he’ll check us out.

So you came close to my town to poach a grill ? Glad you got it because I have a yard full of ssp's and didn't NEED another

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Funny it was a stone’s throw from where I got the Kamado Joe earlier this year….. Ball Ground.  The listing was up for a while and I waited until the price went down.  Patience paid off.

Thanks guys…. Kellee’s teaching a class tonight so Beaux and I got to have us time which included working on the new to me SSP.  New propane tank, acme connector, tube / igniter installed as well as a newer ash catcher / ring, larger lid bale and new front casters.  Regulator works perfectly and oh yes, also Zavod bling on the lid of course!
