Should I go grab this?
« on: May 08, 2019, 06:22:28 AM »
What do you guys think about this one? I offered 25, but the guys says he has someone coming Friday to get it for full price. 50.

I can whittle a new handle for it out of some cedar I have. And I think it would be pretty cool.

New to webers and just saw my first 22" wsm in person at the store yesterday. They are impressive.

I will try to attach the pics

From the ad

     "Not sure what brand it is but looks very similar to the Weber smoky mountain that I have"

Its an hour away but that's not too bad. Is it the 14 inch you think? The guy said anytime after 5. I will try one last time to talk him down, at least to 40. Since it doesn't say weber on it lol

I think it’s an 18” based on the hinged grate.  TMK a 14” hinged grate doesn’t exist.  I also think the mid section may be upside down based on how high the door is, and that may explain why we don’t see the top grate straps.  Initially I thought the top “lip” looked legit, but now I think it’s the bottom rib that fits into the bowl.  I also see down through the bottom vents which means the water bowl isn’t inside.

Only one way to find out[emoji6]

I wondered about it not having the top grate. I will see what the radar looks like tonight, and might go grab it. I appreciate the info!

Idk what the wife will say but oh well

I'm pretty sure it is, I read thru a couple threads about ones with plain vents from the 80's and 90's

That is an 18” WSM. A steal at $50.

Good eye Charlie...I was wondering why I didn’t see the grate straps (because the middle is upside down [emoji106]).

When I first saw it I wondered if maybe they didn't have a top grate on old ones or something lol. Hopefully I can get this thing.

Got it! Pics tomorrow. It seems to be in pretty good shape but its dark out.

I also got a smoky Joe and a little cooler from someone else for 4 bucks while I was up there. Missing the cooking grate though

The wsm does have steel legs. I need to find the post I was just reading the other day about a prototype or something with steel legs. Idk. I'm actually hoping this thing isn't super rare, cause I wanna cook on it lol.
 Here are a couple crappy pics
