Title: My first 18, hopefully
Post by: Grillagin on January 12, 2018, 05:03:12 PM
Hey all.  I found this older 18 on CL, and have been playing text tag with the seller about getting it shipped to me.  I'd like it to be another color, but whatever. I have been looking for an 18" cooker for a while, and this one should clean up fine.  Some Zav handles will be next, should this deal go through.

Good luck! As a CSU alum I will say that is an epic CL write up!

I assured him it would be going to a loving home.

That’s a gorgeous blue 18”. Good luck man. They don’t pop up every day.

Pretty sure that is black, but nab it anyway. Nine bucks? I've spent that much on coffee in a day.

18's are great cookers, hope you get it.

Shes got a really cool Speckled/Weathered/Salt & Pepper look to her.

When you pick her up please add her to the Rescue Mission thread.

Ha! I emailed that guy earlier in the week just to tell him that, although my wife would kill me if I bought another kettle, I LOVED his CL add. @Normal_J_Bird It’s good to know there’s another CSU alum here. Fight on, you stalwart Ram! @Grillagin If you need any help securing or shipping it just let me know. I live about 20 min. away from Loveland.

Thanks, Jed.  I wish everyone was as easy to deal with as you.  He has my offer, but I'm still waiting to hear back.  I hope it works out.  I've been wanting a pre-OT 18.  I'll give you a shout if he or I need a hand.

The deal has stalled a bit.  Shipping may be a stumbling block with the seller.  PM sent to Jed for some local assistance.  Much thanks, Jed, if it works out!

Success!  @Jed.cook was finally able to snag her for me.  The seller was a strange one to deal with, for both of us. Can you post the pics you sent me Jed?  I do love the weathered finish.  @MikeRocksTheRed is helping out with shipping.  Thanks guys!  Next will be a deep clean and new Zav handles.

I'm doing what???  LOL.  Sorry, I just get so many messages between here and my facebook group that I lose track sometimes.  Can you PM me @Grillagin and remind me what I'm doing for you!  LOL.

Ha! My fault, @MikeRocksTheRed.  I mentioned to @Grillagin that you might have an extra box lying around that I could use to ship his new 18.  I was also going to hit you up for some tips on packing kettles for shipping.  That's what he's refering to. :)

Good, I am not losing my mind!  I definitely have a box!   I might even have a 18" box.  If I do have an 18" box chances are I have the foam tube that my 18" had around the bowl rim to protect it when it was shipped to me from another member here.  I'll check the basement and shed today to see what I've got.

Here’s @grillagin’s soon-to-be 18er. Dig the speckling...
