You gotta' love freebies!

Picked this up today. Some old man had it sitting in his driveway, the sign it had the magic words"free".
Everything works including the ignitor,cast iron grates have a little surface rust on them. I'm sure they'll clean right up.

That's awesome, Puff! I just wish we could find some new burners for our gasser. We can't read the model on it anymore and can't find any that look like them. Might be about time to find a new one.

It's funny you mentioned that Nick. The wife and I were just discussing the WSM and how good it would look under the X-mas tree

MBF, don't forget Hoolio, and Aunt Esther

Allie I seem to have quite the stock pile of grills, I might part with one.

Larry if your in the market for a new tub let me know. My neighbor has a nice assortment

You're gonna love the cast iron grates. They take grill marks to an all new level.
