I also got a "new to me" 18" WSM!!!
« on: November 11, 2016, 07:12:43 PM »
I just returned from a short trip to North Carolina to attend my girlfriends sons' wedding. It was hard to do anything, A LOT of driving, no internet where we were staying but on the 7th, I saw this in my hometown, it was driving me nuts thinking it would surely be gone before I got home. I called yesterday afternoon, answering machine, DAMN. He returned my call that evening, HE STILL HAD IT! Arranged for pick up today after work and HERE SHE IS!!!!  Looks brand new, with cover and all for $100... not quite the score that @HoosierKettle got but now I have one too!! Can't wait to put it to use, even bought a slab of london broil so I can make some Jerky this weekend! ;D ;D

Awesome score, and congrats! I never understood the need for a WSM until I scored my own and did first smoke, damn near set and forget. I am sure you will love it.

Great score, especially with the cover. It looks like it has barely been broken in. At first I thought you were going to say that you drove into NC and stole a $100 WSM out from under my nose. :)

@Dsorgnzd , LOL, I was definitely looking when I was able... if it wasn't for the Jetta we rented who knows, I may have had a grill to check on the flight home!...LOL

I loved it Travis. So happy to finally get one. Also has anyone else noticed the new feature Weber added to the WSM? They put a rubber grommet to pass thermo cords through. Just saw it at lowes... Need to see if I can order one!
