My new tailgate grill score.
 
http://img.tapatalk.com/4cc8cc29-2f51-dd2d.jpg

Found a Smokey Joe Platinum new never used on Craigslist out of Ohio. Asking price of $35 plus $35 shipping to WI. He said he got it 5 years ago and never took it out of the box. I'm gonna throw some brats on it tonight and break it in. I was tossing around the idea of getting a Q200 for the last few summers for tailgating and camping but really wanted charcoal. Glad I found one. I don't know why they would discontinue this, it's gotta be the ultimate tailgate grill!

It says "not available" on the Lowe's site. I don't know why they have something you can't buy up on their site.

i didn't see it at all. but yea, i doubt it coming back. best is to just take a regular 18.5 kettle and put short legs on.

It's coming back George. Most likely it has not been released yet.

And excellent score!!!!

Just cooked up some brats. Definitely doesn't breath like a Performer but it should work great for game day. About 1/2 a chimney full of charcoal seems like it will be the right amount for indirect. That's cool that they might bring it back. The smokey joe gold is just too small for more than 3-4 people.

Nice find. I didn't even know these things existed until about 10 days ago when I saw it mentioned on this place and yeah, i NEED one!

Beginning to realize it's never gonna end. :twitch:

A bird in the had is worth two in the bush. If they ever actually go back in to production with the new one. I have seen in my industry where a manufacture will advertise a product and see how many bites they get. If they get enough they do it, if not scrap it. So what you have there is solid. Whether they build it or not you now have one in your hand. Great buy and a great price.

ok, very interesting. i notice that the vent is on the bottom. wonder if it will need the "can" mod ?

Looks like side vents too me, you can see them in the photo of the brats cooking. .

When I put in a zip code where I knew there was a Lowe's, the site said available for in store pickup.

EDIT: Went to the next step and back to "unavailable" :(

mbshop 08-26-2012 03:39 PM

sorry, was refering to the "new" one shown in the target site.
