Title: Attic Find!
Post by: CatskillSmoker on March 09, 2019, 01:08:07 PM
So last night i'm surfing around the World Wide Weber and come across an ad that has no pictures.
For some reason it sparked my curiosity. Ad stated NEW Weber grill. I called and asked if she could text me pictures. Was told grill is brand new and never cooked on. At 8:41 this morning I get these pictures.

I can't believe it. I let her know I'm interested and will have a friend pick it up.
I text @randy , whom I can't thank enough, at 8:53 to see if he's working. 8:55  he replies "Kinda, working on my truck". I send him pictures and address and it's 20 minutes away. Only problem is his transmission pan and lines are out of the truck, but will do it after he's done. I've gotten to know Randy so I know this shouldn't be a problem. I test to let her know sometime in the afternoon. "No problem, just text me when he's coming". At 1:55 Randy texts me he's headed that way. I let her know. About a half hour later he texts me to "call him" After talking it took another 30 minutes to receive the confirmed pictures. WOW! I didn't know it was a DEMO grill. Surprised is an understatement.

Then when I think it couldn't get any better, Randy sends this.

Randy says " A grill I like" LMAO

She's SAFE for now. LMFAO

It's been in an attic all this time. Waiting to come to the WKC.
Thanks so much Randy. Your the Agent of the Year.

Outstanding pick-up fellas.

The little ol'lady just might have more treasure cluttering  her attic. She could have a lot of things like corn & tater rings....or maybe even a conversation with George, who knows. I  think it'd be a good idea to keep in contact with her and make sure she knows you want all of her Weber junk.

I can't make enough syrup to repay him. LOL

Grate find on a Demo. One of the few ‘logos’ I like


Or did I play a sick joke? 🤷‍♂️



I’ve played that game before...

Have we seen non-MLH Demos before?

Post by: CatskillSmoker on March 11, 2019, 10:52:00 AM
Thanks Fellas. I'm just blown away by this. To have a never cooked on PP Texan I thought was awesome. To find out that it was a DEMO was a dream. There was no way to see it in the pictures seller sent me. I contacted Estate Sale agent and unfortunately both owners of the home are deceased. I inquired by asking that maybe he worked for Weber.. She explained he worked for Champion Spark plug and she was in hospitality. "Attorney had no idea what was in the attic". I asked if there was anyone to talk to and she replied " Sorry, there's no one left". This won't stop me from trying to find out more but for now I'm at a brick wall. I will give it the home it deserves and it's here in the WKC.

GFS Lump is good, but have you ever tried Match-Light?   Perfect time to try it.  Skin on thighs sounds like the perfect first cook.  Maybe some 73/27 burgers seared to hell too[emoji848]

Skipped the math light and went straight to the 93 octane mower gas. All I had to throw on her was some bacon 🥓

The hell with the starter chimney, just put the whole bag of lump in and hit it with some of that 93 octane. That should cook that bacon perfectly. LMAO
