My first MBH and it's a cado!
« on: December 04, 2018, 06:25:12 PM »
I'm still processing how this all happened! I don't usually check Craigslist et al. on the weekends but I happened to do so late Saturday. I see this avocado listed. Not only that but it comes with a shish kabob ring! It was over an hour away and I didn't know if I could get away for 2 hours while leave my wife with two kids, one of which is only a few weeks old. Still I messaged the seller. It had been listed for over 6 hours so I had low hopes. In the mean time I contacted a few folks to see if they could agent.

The next morning I hear back and I was actually the first to contact the seller! We try to work out a time while I wait to her back from prospect agents. Then he says someone else is interested in buying the kettle a d wanted to know if I was serious about buying it. Of course I was! I kindly ask my wife and she said I could go get it! I confirm a time and location with the seller and I am on my way!

We meet up and the seller is a real nice guy. He said he got it at a garage sale 15 years ago but he has no idea how old it is. He said the shish kabob ring was his parents! I quickly look over the kettle. Bottom vents are stuck and there is a little bit of rust at the leg welds but overall it is on great condition! There are also only 5 of 6 skewers and only 1 has a handle and the ring is slightly out of round. I paid him then quickly make my way back home.

Life has been so crazy that it is still in the trunk of my car haha! And I have been delaying posting about it because I wanted to clean it up first but I don't know when that will happen so here we are. The first picture is right after pick up in the parking lot. The second is from the listing.

I did check the vent and it is patent pending and I think the wheels are metal so I guess that makes it 69-72? When was the shish kabob ring in production?

Like I said I'm still processing all this and I can't believe I found one of these! I'm sure it will hit me once I actually take it out my trunk and clean it up.
