~Offer Up Blue Cheer!~
« on: October 05, 2016, 08:00:34 AM »
I haven't had much luck surfing Let Go or Offer Up around here, loads of outdated posts and never had a response to any inquiries Weber related until today. 

Found a month old Offer Up post for a Blue logo'd kettle for $20. Couldn't tell much from the pic, but the post did say it had never been used. So being I'm on a Blue mission these days, I went for it - the person responded and we made the deal.



I was pleasantly surprised to find this DT 2003 18" OTG. I was expecting a 22"!



Surface rust on the grates and all the aluminum has oxidation but the porcelain is spotless inside and out.



The lady said she got it from an Alaskan Brewing Rep when she worked at a local grocer and it sat uncovered at her parents house under a covered deck for at least 10 years.



I've seen Bud Light, Corona and Keystone Beer in Blue anyone seen an Alaskan Brewing Co. before?



Adding this to the RRR pile!
I cook on: Backwoods Gater, Lang 36, Hunsaker Smokers, Pellet Pro 22" WSM, BGE's, WSM's, Cajun Bandits, PK Grills, Drum Smokers, Genesis Silver C, Weber Q's, Cookshack 008, Little Chief, La Caja China #2, Lodge Sportsman...oh yeah! Weber Kettles! Kamado restoration and pit modification hack!

What an amazing score.
I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

4 MBH, 1 WoodDale, a SCG, and other stuff, including Pellet grills.

Sweet score right there!!!
Lets just say I have acquired a few Kettles.  Big and small.   Vintage and New...  Some say I have a problem.  I find the Kettle, buy the Kettle, USE the Kettle...No problem...

Wow! Rare, gorgeous, and unused to boot. Awesome.

Yes, 1 month ago. Seems like the majority of items are cross posted on craigslist and Let Go. While the CL ads expire or get removed the Offer Up and Let Go do not.

This kettle and another Blue 22" are still listed.
