That's what I was thinking. Maybe offer 'em $25 or so? You don't really know if there are any places that it is rusted through anywhere. That will effect it's performance, and a rusty pit is hard to patch. Might cost more than starting from scratch.

just looks like surface rust from the pics. I think a motivated/handy person could make it work, without too much cost. But then, I found most of my cookers in the trash, so I'm kind of biased on this. Jac, I really hope you can get this pit and make it work. I would love to see it restored.

Dont sand blast the inside. That make it dribble sand in your stuff for decades. I would hook it up and wash it down inside and out with cooking oil and put a big fire in the hole. When that cools down..repeat the process. The outside will turn black like a skillet and should make a fine cooking machine. Little work wth the wire brush on the grates. I am liking the sound of this.

Still seems like more work than a person might want, but I do agree with BW, burn it out several times using some oil or lard.
