My Best Single Weber Day LOOOONG STORY PIC HEAVY
« on: February 12, 2018, 12:00:03 PM »
5 Weber items secured in one day. So let's get started.
Mid October I found a,never cooked on, Plum SSP. A ladies father bought it,got ill, and passed away.
Into their shed and under a cover is where it has sat all this time. (1st PIC)

Set it up for the first week in November for pickup, it was in Philadelphia.
2 days before I am to go get it, her daughter calls to explain she changed her mind.
Too much sentimental value to her mother. I was CRUSHED. I told her to please keep my number and call me if her mother ever changes her mind.
 Well fast forward to Thursday  and I get a call from a Hawaii number so I let it go to voicemail.
I check and it's the daughter calling to say the grill is mine if I still want it. I set it up for Monday at 8:30 AM.
When I get off the phone I get a FB alert for a NIB Fire Pit 40.00. Long of it I reach out to seller and @DrewZ . Drew can make the pickup Saturday and I arrange it with seller. I got this for @mdb240 as he told me to keep my eyes open for one. Well I found him one. Wheels started spinning. Mike is in Philadelphia. I didn't want to get another call about the SSP saying she changed her mind again. I called Mike and worked it out for him to pick the SSP up Saturday.
Saturday comes and the first text I get at 9:30 is from Drew saying Fire Pit secured.

About 1:30 I get a text from Mike that the SSP is secured. Thank GOD!


Next I have an agent going to an estate sale. It's for an MBH Brownie.
I get a video from him, I wish I knew how to post a video. He starts of with the lid vent showing its a Patented and starts showing the grill. He starts saying Wait for it. Wait for it. Wait for it.
Oh my, what do we have here. It looks to be a box for a Work Table.
He calls me and tells me the price and he secured them. They were sold as a set and not separately. 
I still can't believe my eyes.


















A few weeks back I was told of a yellow 18. Waiting to hear if she wants to sell it.
So Saturday night I'm up in Albany seeing Joe Satriani.
At about 6:15 I get a text saying she will sell it.
I responded and my buddy secured the grill.
Don't have pictures of the yellow yet, but will post when I get them

So fast forward to today. I left my house at 4AM to meet up with Drew in NJ to pickup Fire Pit.
After meeting Drew on time I'm off to Mikes in Philadelphia.
I arrive on time as well, drop off the Fire Pit and pickup Plum SSP.
I head up to @james1787 in Northern NJ to pick up a Gen 2 Performer he picked up for me. Came with cover. Not bad for 35.00. Cleaning it up for a friend
He explained he had a OTP I could have if I wanted. Well 8 hours and 356 miles, I'm home safe and sound.
Time for a nap.







Never been cooked on





Protective covering still on regulator. Will get better pictures later.
Into the barn it goes. First cook is dedicated to her husband.
I now have 6 of the 7 SSP colors. Now on the hunt for a brown.
