    I got a used Weber Performer Deluxe from a friend a few years ago for $100, including cover, a full set of Grillgrates, and an adapter hose for a 20# propane tank. It's my favorite cooker, and the best buy I've made. I've pimped it out with the original SNS, DNG and EasySpin grate, a PartyQ and a Smoke. One day I plan on a rotisserie for it, just because the rotisserie for my Genesis II stinks. It's a great cooker to pimp out with accessories!

    Great advice! My daughter married quite a few years back (I am older than ya'll for sure!) but even 17 years ago weddings were expensive. My sister, who will ask me anything, during the wedding no less, leaned over and asked me how much it cost me! Probably because both of her daughters were to be married very soon thereafter...........anyway, I was able to whisper back that I had started saving for this when she was only a few months old and that it was all paid for. Planning ahead= cool!

    The rotisserie is fun, excited to do that Picanha soon. The only downfall is the space rotisseries take up when not on the grill for the kettles and kamados.

    Now you just need a Fireboard and Drive kit to regulate those temps ;-)

    I too feel and understand your pain. I bought a used Weber Performer 3-4 weeks ago. I wanted a charcoal grill for certain types of cooks but thought I wouldn’t use it that much and thus the used one. Well now I have an SnS Deluxe, Vortex, a new grate “upgrade”, addition bbq tools, well you get it. AND thanks to you, I am considering a rotisserie kit! 🤣😂🙄

    But what the heck? I am retired, kids grown gone and married, financially secure, and of course with the virus isolation thing there’s nothing else to do. So smoke on and keep grilling!! 👍

    Then i definitely shouldn't mention that PBCs are on SALE right now. Think of the money you could be saving......


    Duckman_OK yeah, I got the bottom plate attached. 3 tubes of JB Weld did the trick. I'll have a post with all the "updates" soon

    Good advice, we do keep a decent savings and max our HSA every year, but do you ever have enough when you get hit as hard as you have been? I feel for you brother. Luckily I only have one daughter and am hopefully at least a decade away from giving her away.

    Did you get the new bottom plate for the PBC installed?

    I feel your pain!

    One piece of advice I have is to be sure you are saving some and not spending it all on cooking gear. Having been through 3 weddings in 20 months, and having two surgeries last year myself, and then having my wife diagnosed with cancer 2 weeks after becoming empty nesters, be sure you have plenty of savings to tide you through things if a crisis were to hit. And if you have daughters.... start saving for not only their college expenses but for the inevitable weddings, and start NOW...

    I love to window shop smokers, computers, all sorts of gear, but right now have to be content with window shopping. I think the accessory bug you have now is at least cheaper than the cooker acquisition bug you had!

    Maybe once all these new toys come in, the thing to focus on is perfecting your cooks, and expanding your recipe base beyond traditional BBQ.

    Don't talk too much about that PBC, I said I was content with my current cookers or at least that's what I'm trying to convince myself.

    My want/need center and index finger motor control center are directly connected and in autopilot mode. I just can't help myself.

    Sounds like you need more meat to practice on.

    I can give you my address if you want to send samples!

    I get it. I can't stop adding mods to the PBC. I'm almost done tinkering..... I SWEAR!
