Killer Deal Last Week
« on: August 07, 2019, 07:28:03 AM »
I was driving to work a few minutes after 9 am and saw a big "Garage Sale" sign up ahead.  I slowed a little to take a look as I went by, they had just opened.  There in the driveway stood a WSM.  I wasn't sure which one but I slowed way down and did a U turn ASAP.  Parked in their drive, got out and walked up to take a closer look.

A 22" WSM on caster wheels, 2 half bags of charcoal, most of a large bag of apple wood chunks, a cover, a charcoal starter--AND a complete IQ-120 Air Controller. I quickly add up everything in my head (over $600 new) and crap my pants when I see the price :o...$50.00  I quickly paid for it and loaded up.  It needs a little clean-up but otherwise it's in great shape. 

The only thing I don't understand is there is NO DATE CODE on the top vent.  Can someone tell me what that means?

Awesome score, can you see a faint serial number on the top vent, a couple of letters and then numbers ?

I used my 100W trouble light and looked at it from every angle, can't see a thing.

I'm no WSM expert, maybe one of the other guys can chime in on date code

Amazing deal - congrats! 

Lack of date code/serial # on the lid vent could indicate that it is a warranty replacement lid.  I've had a couple of lids replaced under warranty that have blank vents.

I swear, when I score a great deal on a 26" I'll stop buying grills... So often.

Check the lower vents too. My 2011 AA code has them on all vents, and yours has the temp probe grommet so its at least a 2013.

I'm still waiting to find one for under 100. You got the deal with the pitmaster for sure

No date code for a newer WSM usually indicates a warrantied part. So the lid was probably replaced by Weber Customer Service sometime back.
