    $30.00- Are you kidding me?

    Scored a Performer Deluxe with Touch and Go Ignition for 30 bucks on Friday. I texted the guy to make sure he hadn't misplaced a decimal- $300.00 vs $30.00.
    Sure enough, 30 bucks. I made a quick inspection, the bowl was intact, the lid had no dings. The plastic table was a little janky, but I figured I could fix that. I handed over a 20 and 2 fives as quick as I could get them out of my pocket.
    Upon further inspection, the charcoal ($16) and grill grates ($32) were shot. The front brace ($34) was cracked and held together with zip ties, the ignitor wouldn't fire ($23). All in so far- $135, and about an hour cleaning her up. I put about a 1/2 hour into sanding down the plastic table, results were good. I used 150 gr, then 220, then 400 and finally 000 steel wool. If I had that to do over again, I would've started with the 220, and left out the 150.

    Now, I didn't need another grill- but 30 bucks? Come on! This one will probably live at my cabin in the mountains, as there really isn't any place to put it at home:

    I don't think I have MCS- I think I have MBS ( Mr. Bones )Syndrome)

    By the way, the little 18" kettle is a Weber knock off I got at Target, oh, 30+ years ago?

          Great job. I love finding deals. Your bbq yard looks really nice. Where did you find it in So. Cal? If it was near me, I'm gonna be bummed (but happy for you ).

                Having the same cooking setup at the cabin is a bonus! I’ve done the same at our lake house! Both my dad and I have have our older Weber Genesis’ down there and I also have my $30 wonder Kettle. It sure is fun to be able to cook up the same goodness wherever you are calling home at the time!

                excellent work on the new to you kettle!
