I am new to the site and am looking for a good shape 22” Weber yellow, I am not a collector or reseller, my dad had one growing up and I would like to continue the tradition! Thanks for leads or if you have one forsale.

@Yatesford38 , welcome to the club.  Your asking for a TALL order here, AND expensive.  The last yellow sold on ebay went for just over $2000.  Unless cost is no concern, you may want to start with another color until you find what you want. I have 2 yellow kettles, but no where near "great shape"...But usable none the less.  Again, welcome and good luck in your search.
CGA,GGA, jumbo joe, 3-18" kettles,22" blue,green,yellow and 2 reds, 1-22" lid mod for pizza, a genesis silver,2 Red SS Performers,2 26ers,1 red, 1 chief and a Ranch Kettle.

The rarest, best condition Webers I've seen in the Milwaukee area have been at garage, estate, yard, rummage, etc. sales. Lots of patience and leg work. I don't collect, I just cook, so if I see one around here I'll let you know.

I don’t collect either I just want the one that I remember from my childhood and that’s it, just a 22” yellow in good shape with all parts intact.

Ask yourself a couple of questions.

Do you want it cheap?
Do you want it fast?
Do you want it in good condition?

Which of the above 2 are the most important to you?  If you do the legwork yourself, you may find one in great shape for very little money, but it will likely take you a while.

Otherwise, what is your budget and how "great" of condition do you expect for that?  That might tell you what your best bet is.  One recently sold on ebay for $400 plus $100 shipping.  You can check out the condition here. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-034-THE-GOURMET-034-1970-039-s-Weber-Kettle-BBQ-Grill-YELLOW-22-034-MBH-Collectible-/183464458279?nma=true&si=%252Fv3F9jun1UvCaXYOUnOmN968dOs%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

While I paid "only" around $50 for mine, that did not include the gas, tolls & time to travel round trip from Chicago to Grand Rapids, MI (let alone the time searching various sale sites).

If you do the legwork yourself, you might want to keep an eye open for one that is equally as desirable, or even more so, that you might be able to trade for a yellow. 

I'd certainly trade you mine for a glen blue, a meat cut, a westerner, a ranger, a custom, or a number of other cool grills. 

Good luck. 
regards,
Hal

I have been searching for only a month or so and have come up pretty empty so far I think my best bet is hit up estate sales and rummages. I would like to get one for $300 or less

Did you get the Homer to hold you over? $30 is a good deal for that one you found.

That may be serious enough cash to get someone to part with one here.

Check out garage sales in addition to estate sales & rummage sales.  Also, at garage sales, it doesn't hurt to ask if they happen to have a bbq for sale even if you don't see one.  I've seen people ask about certain types of items & the home owner is like, oh yeah, & they grab the item to add to the sale.  If they say yes, start with gas or charcoal.  If charcoal, ask if it is one of the round kettle ones, & then go on to color.  Good luck.

I wouldnt think a yellow no matter the condition would be worth a westerner, meatcuts, glen blue, custom or any of the type. The rarity of all of these far surpass a yellow. Just my humble opinion.

Why do you think I'd certainly trade it?  In a damn heartbeat, anyone would.  He'd have a boatload of people offering to not only trade, but to deliver a yellow right to his doorstep by this afternoon!

Really, my point is poke around a bit on here & keep an eye out for anything that seems like a lot of people like.  If he picked up the Homer, depending on it's condition & the condition of a potential trade, he might be able to trade straight up, perhaps add some cash, perhaps get some cash.

Yes i mean that those are all worth alot more in price and rarity so people who have them wouldnt trade for a yellow. I understand the other way around everyone would jump at it as i would to.
